  • Biodegradability - in six months, the material must demonstrate at least 90% biodegradability (into CO2, water and biomass).
  • Compost quality - the composted material must not negatively affect the quality of the compost produced. It must also meet safe limits for volatile matter, fluoride and 10 heavy metals.

How to store compostable vest carrier bags

Please store in a cool, dry place, away from sources of heat or direct sunlight and in original packaging to maintain product quality. Use within 12 months.

How to dispose of these compostable vest carriers

These vest carrier bags offer a helpful secondary use as a bin liner for collecting food waste. They can be disposed of, along with their contents, in your food waste collection, as they are designed to break down in industrial composting units within 12 weeks.

The bags are also suitable for home composting, although this process will likely take longer than 12 weeks (timescales will vary depending on the composting environment).

Not suitable for regular (non-organic) recycling.
