Organic, Vegan and Plant-Based gummy bears
Our new range or Gummy bears all come in fully biodegradable packaging that will fully compost in as little as 2-6 weeks!
From the very early concept of creating an Organic Gummy Bear. We knew we wanted the packaging to be different. We focused on a 100% compostable packaging solution. Our reasons for doing so were: stop the use of non-renewable materials, halt the greenhouse gas emissions that come from landfills, and lastly improve and re-enrich our soils.
Our biggest break through came when we teamed up with one of the leading players in the ASTM Committee D20. They helped us create a bag that is fully biodegradable and would allow our products to maintain their optimal freshness!
Our bags are made from: Kraft Paper, Biodegradable MOPP and Compostable PLA (from Sugar Cane)
This resulted in a bag which is Oxo-biodegradable. What this means is that it will degrade in landfill - and what’s even better than that? The degradation process will not releaseanymethane into the atmosphere.
How to dispose of packaging correctly?
The good news! The bags have several compostable certifications. The certifications are the following: industrial compostable, landfill biodegradation AND home compost. Which is exceptional because you have several options such as: throwing it in the trash can, composting industrially (if you have access to that option), and even in your own home. How great is that? You can easily compost it in your own backyard, although it can take 2 + years, depending on the environmental conditions. Industrial composting is preferred, but you still have other options. The bad news, the bags are not marine biodegradable. But it’s very uncommon for food packaging to even provide a sustainable solution. We gave you three!
