benefits of ePac’s compostable packaging
earth-friendly alternative to conventional packaging – Environmentally-friendly custom flexible packaging has never been easier. With ePac’s compostable product packaging, you can offer a sustainable packaging solution that pleases both you, and your customers.
sustainable manufacturing– ePac’s digital printing platform produces less waste and VOC emissions, uses less energy than conventional printing technologies, and eliminates the need for printing plates. ePac’s digital presses are carbon neutral and use compostable printing inks, so the creation of your compostable products will simultaneously contribute to a circular economy.
reduce waste diverted to landfills – Most packaging tends to end up in landfills. With compostable packaging, you can help divert packaging from landfills by giving consumers packaging that can be naturally broken down by microorganisms in their backyard, or with the help of their local industrial composting facility.
Are your compostable films FDA compliant?
Yes, all of our compostable films are FDA compliant for direct food contact.
Biodegradable vs compostable, what’s the difference?
Compostable products require a certain type of environment in order to break down into non-toxic components, which is done with the help of heat, water, oxygen and microorganisms. Compostable products are great for the environment because they nourish the soil that they return to. Biodegradable items also break down naturally, but can leave harmful residue/metals behind in the process. Compostable packaging is biodegradable; however, not all biodegradable items are compostable.
Where can the packaging be composted?
Our packaging is both industrial and backyard compostable, meaning that it can either be composted at home or deposited at a local drop-off point. Since composting rules and regulations vary greatly from one area to another, we recommend looking up what is available near you.
Do your compostable films perform as well as your regular films?
Great question, and the answer is YES. Our compostable films are designed to protect your product from environmental factors, while extending shelf life, and still maintaining shelf appeal. You can rest assured that with compostable packaging, you will still be able to compete with brands using regular packaging.
What are the compostable pouch dimensions?
We can create custom-sized compostable stand up pouches and lay flat pouches. Additionally, we can provide you with our standard sized products if you’re unsure of where to begin.
What are some of the compostable pouch features?
The majority of our compostable packaging is customizable to include any of the following:
- High vapor barriers that block moisture, oxygen, and aroma from entering or exiting the package
- Different hang hole options
