A new line of compostable bags manufactured and marketed by Lindamar Industries, Inc. has received the Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI) ASTM-D6400 certification for 100 per cent biodegradability.
The ISO 9001-2008 certified, California-based plastic packaging manufacturer says that its new Nature's Reward bags, used for trash, potty liners, lawn and leaf, or shopping, have also earned the “OK Compost” certification and comply with requirements of the EU Packaging Directive (94/62/EEC).
“Earning the BPI certification is like passing the gold standard for us,” said Anthony Hall, President and CEO of Lindamar Industries, Inc., speaking in a December 9, 2013 statement. “We are thrilled to be able to guarantee unequivocally that our clients receive tested, reliable compostable products and to help the environment by providing bags that will biodegrade completely, quickly and safely—just as kraft paper, yard trimmings and food scraps would,” added Hall.
BPI, the national authority on approved biodegradable products in organics diversion programs, tests compostable products in approved, independent labs to verify that they meet certain standards developed by leading scientists, resin producers and the composting industry. These standards —American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) D6400 and D6868 — scientifically prove a material will biodegrade, leaving no persistent synthetic residues, according to the association.
The line is made from PSM Bioplastics raw material and is designed for the collection and disposal of waste products in composts and composting facilities.
Provides quality bags in a variety of styles and types for vendors and consumers of agricultural, bakery, meat, medical, and industrial products.
