Compostable Bags


The UK dumps more household waste into landfill than any other EU state, according to reports. This includes food waste that is fully degradable. We now offer a fully compostable material that will help to address this issue.

Polycomp compostable bags are an environmentally-friendly alternative to standard polythene bags, ideal for a wide range of applications.

Our starch-based compostable bags are designed to break down naturally after use so there’s no need for them to be recycled, and no need for them to take up space in landfill sites.

Fully compostable within ten days in the right environment, yet strong and effective during use, these practical bags are fully EN13432 certified and provide an excellent green solution to your packaging and marketing needs.

Our Polycomp 100% compostable bags have been certified by French manufacturer Barbier SAS as officially containing NO Genetically Modified Organisms (GMO) and having been produced FREE from GMO materials.

This completely supports our work in developing a totally green alternative to regular polythene bags.

Compostable Bags Range:

  • Sizes: 300mm to 4000mm wide
  • Thicknesses: 12.5µm to 400µm

Compostable Bags can be supplied:

  • Loose as singles
  • In boxes of 10kg to 15kg or in pallet boxes
  • Perforated on the roll: approx 15kg to 35kg
  • Printed up to 8 colours
