Novolex Earns Benchmark BPI Compostable Certifications for Paper Bags and Sacks

Duro®, a Novolex® brand, has earned the Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI) certification for numerous products in its Dubl Life® line of paper bags and sacks. The products are among the first on the market to receive this leading certification, further expanding the portfolio of certified compostable products offered by Novolex.

In another first, the bags will also feature the How2Compost® and How2Recycle® labels, which inform consumers of how to dispose of the packaging after use.

The How2Compost and How2Recycle labeling systems are managed by the Sustainable Packaging Coalition® (SPC), whose members include forward-thinking brands that want their packaging to be recycled and composted, and are empowering consumers to do so through informative labels. The goal of these labels is to clearly communicate the composting and recycling instructions for these products to the public.

The SPC uses a rigorous assessment process in order to designate labels for use on products. The use of the How2Compost label requires testing by the Biodegradable Products Institute to ensure the packaging can be processed in a commercial composting facility.
