Compostable Bags

Polythene UK’s Range of 100% Compostable Bags

Our starch-based Polycomp™ bags are designed to break down naturally after use so there’s no need for them to be recycled. One-hundred percent compostable, yet as strong and effective as standard polythene bags, our Polycomp™ bags mean you can bin your food waste, liner and all, without having to worry about harming the environment.

Compostable Bag Process

Our starch-based Polycomp™ bags are designed to break down naturally after use so there’s no need for them to be recycled. The bag will compost alongside your food waste, providing a genuinely green solution to your packaging needs.

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™ bags are 100% compostable and 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.
