Cardia Bioplastics Launches Range of Certified Compostable Bags
Cardia Bioplastics Limited announces the launch of its extensive range of certified compostable bag products that will be sold direct to the public or via authorised distributors in Australia and New Zealand. The new product range will be launched at Auspack Plus 2011, the leading trade fair of packaging, processing and plastics technology in Australasia.
Cardia Bioplastics Managing Director Dr Frank Glatz said "Our compostable products have been extensively tested and are certified by the major international testing authorities. We source our own raw materials, formulate and manufacture the resins using our proprietary technology and produce the bags at our state-of-the-art bag making facilities in Nanjing, China. We give our customers full assurance that the Cardia Bioplastics bag products deliver highest performance, meet the prescribed international certifications standards and decompose safely in council organic waste management systems. Cardia Compostable bags meet the most demanding standards in the world. Belgium-based Organic Waste Systems independently tested our products and confirmed that they are not toxic to either plants or earthworms. In order to signal to consumers Cardia's commitment, we have used consistent, unique and easily recognisable branding across our Cardia Compostable bag range."
Recycling organics is vital if we are serious about reducing our eco-footprint and managing our waste sustainably. Retailers and fresh food markets are increasingly promoting the use of compostable bags. Many councils now offer a Kitchen-to-Compost service, where food and garden organics are recycled together and turned into valuable compost. Compost can be used to replenish and remediate eroded soils and in farming. Unlike landfill, this is a sustainable waste management alternative that results in more positive, long-term environmental outcomes for our community and environment.
Cardia Bioplastics now offers a comprehensive range of compostable bags that are functional and easy-to-use.
