10-day compostable starch bags

The UK adds more household waste into landfill than any other EU state. This includes food waste. We now offer our exclusive Polycomp™ material to help to address this issue. Our starch-based Polycomp™ compostable polythene is designed to break down naturally after use so there’s no need for them to be recycled.
