Clear Biodegradable Standup Eco Pouches

Our 70 Micron Compostable, Biodegradable and Ocean-Friendly Clear Standup Pouches / Doy Packs

Due to the huge success of our Eco Pouch range of biodegradable vacuum pouches, we were asked to produce a range of clear biodegradable standup pouches. Eco Standup Pouches – are a sustainable and eco-friendly alternative to traditional plastic-based standup pouches and doy packs.

We experimented with a vast number of substrate thicknesses before the correct balance between usability and environmental suitability was found. The final product is a clear, biodegradable standup pouch that has the qualities required of a regular standup pouch (burst pressure, clarity, strength, and durability), and a standup pouch that is friendlier to our environment.

All our biodegradable vacuum packing products are manufactured on-site in our purpose-built UK factory under AA accredited BRCGS conditions.

Biodegradable and Compostable

Standup Eco Pouches are a biodegradable packaging solution that breaks down, under specific composting conditions, back into water, carbon dioxide (CO2) and biomass.

Made from a range of natural products, including paper, eucalyptus fibre, cassava and corn starch; Eco Pouch is ideally suited to the vacuum packing of goods up to 1kg in weight.

Home Composting – takes less than 26 weeks at ambient temperature (<30ºC).

Industrial Composting – takes less than 12 weeks at 60ºC.

Ocean Friendly

Prevention of packaging materials entering our marine environments should always be a priority. However, should Standup Eco Pouches find their way into the seas or rivers, they offer a more eco-friendly solution to petrochemical based packaging.

Standup Eco Pouches have returned encouraging results when exposed to marine environments; typically reducing to granular levels within 24 weeks of immersion and exposure to microbes, water and oxygen.

Standup Eco Pouches will dissolve into water, carbon dioxide (CO2) and biomass without eco-toxicity.
