Prevent Organic Waste From Going To Landfills By Using Earth2Earth® Compostable Sacks.

11th February 2020

Earth2Earth® Compostable Film is 100% Compostable.

 

Made using a unique blend that’s highly waterproof and heat resistant. Earth2Earth® Compostable Sacks have undergone stringent testing, by independent bodies, in accredited labs to ensure that they are compliant to EN 13432 standards.

Features and Benefits

Large carrying capacity
Earth2Earth compostable liners are constructed with high-strength material, allowing them to be used for residential and commercial waste management needs.

Ensure that organic waste goes to composting facilities
There are no chemical additives used in the Earth2Earth compostable liners to speed up the degradation, and their construction doesn’t have any polyethylene. They are developed to adhere to the requirements of the composting process to the letter.

Improving soil quality
Instead of letting valuable organic matter to rot away in landfills and produce methane, it can be diverted to composting facilities, returning the much needed nutrients to the soil to improve on its health and structure.

EN 13432 compliant
This EU standard dictates the test parameters for industrial and home compostable products. It requires that the compostable plastics should have disintegrated after 12 weeks, and should also be completely biodegradable after 6 months. Basically, within that period, over 90% of the product should have converted into carbon dioxide. The remaining matter will be a combination of biomass and water, which makes it valuable as compost.

Reduce landfill sizes
A welcome benefit of composting organic waste is that it reduces the amount of land that is needed for landfills. Since the waste is broken down and used to revitalise soil, the demand for more space to hold the ever-increasing about of trash is reduced.
