Concerns over our throwaway culture and the effect of plastic products on the environment are leading the charge for ‘green’ food packaging. With an industry focused on producing eco-friendly packaging and a high consumer demand, Charlotte Packaging is increasing the amount of biodegradable materials used across the entire range.
We offer fully biodegradable food packaging and biodegradable bags meeting market trends, environmental protection through corporate social responsibility and importantly, reaching new customers with green credentials.
Every business is different, which is why we use a range of biodegradable packaging made from different materials in order to match the needs of our clients. Our eco-friendly range of materials include:
NatureFlex™: Is made from natural, renewable materials such as wood pulp. NatureFlex is both biodegradable and compostable, making it one of the most eco-friendly products we offer.
- Static free
- Heat sealable
- Permeable against moisture

PLA: Is made from Polylactiacid. This environmentally friendly polymer is made from renewable corn starch and can degrade to CO2 and H20 in just 45 days. This qualifies it for the European composting certification standards ASTM D5338 at 58°c.
