The Importance of Raw Materials

The efficient management of the resources and raw material suppliers we use is an integral part of our success.

BAG TO EARTH products are made from 100% natural and renewable resources, unlike some compostable plastics made from food sources.

All materials that go into our  bags – paper, glue and vegetable-based inks – are fully compostable.  Once our products enter the composting cycle, they break down; in either a composting or biomethanation/anaerobic digestion process, and are converted into useable compost – disappearing fully and completely into the earth.  It is all part of our commitment to not only preserve, but also enrich, the environment.

Purchasing Policy for the Manufacture of Compostable Paper Products

BAG TO EARTH is a user of Kraft paper, paper board and wood fibre-based film for the manufacture and packaging of our products.  Whenever the manufacturing and user application determines it, that the supply of recycled content be used. If the application determines that virgin paper materials are required, they are sourced from suppliers that have renewable and sustainable forest management programs and certifications.

Preference is given to suppliers that have established sustainable and renewable forest management policies, which include COC (Chain of Custody Certification), FSC (Forest Stewardship Certification), SFI (Sustainable Forestry Initiative) and PEFC (Program for Endorsement of Forest Certification).

We ensure our policy of purchasing and use of paper assists and contributes to the long term goals of reducing and ending worldwide deforestation as well as the implementation and support of strong forest management practices.
