Packaging That Doesn't Cost the Earth

With heightened consumer interest in environmental issues, Planglow USA appreciate how increasingly important it is to offer its customers environmentally friendly products, whilst delivering the most suitable product solution.

As an organization we have a policy of only sourcing, where feasible, paper-based products sourced from sustainable and renewable plantations. Our bags and matt and gloss sheet labels are made from paper. This means they will biodegrade in a composting environment.

All Planglow packaging is made from 100% biodegradable and compostable material. Each product is laminated with a home compostable, plant based film which forms the window and provides a superior barrier. The plant based laminate is derived from renewable plants rather than oil based plastic and is fully certified to the European (EN13432) and Amercian (ASTM D6400) norms for compostable packaging by Vincotte, Din Certco and BPI.
