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 natural and renewable resources.  All materials that go into our  bags – paper, glue and vegetable-based inks – are fully certified compostable and petroleum-free.  Once our products enter the composting cycle, they disappear 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/or 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.
