Duro®, a Novolex® brand, announced today that it has earned Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI) certification for even more of its paper bags and sacks.
Now featuring more than 100 SKUs that have been tested and certified by BPI, Duro is adding to the growing number of certified commercially compostable products offered by Novolex. Certification by BPI assures customers that the packaging can be processed in a commercial compost facility.
The newly certified bags include Duro recycled kraft paper shopping bags as well as lawn and leaf bags. They join other Novolex products that have already earned BPI certification, including compostable produce bags, T-shirt bags, can liners, and foodservice items from Eco-Products®.
“At Novolex, we take great pride in reducing the environmental impact of packaging and offering the best in sustainable products,” said Adrianne Tipton, PhD, Chief Technology Officer at Novolex. “These latest certifications from BPI demonstrate our commitment to be constantly innovating for the benefit of our customers, our communities and our planet.”
BPI says the certifications are important, noting that while the terms “biodegradable” and “compostable” may appear to be synonymous, there are critical differences.
