Compostable freezer bags free from harmful chemicals like BPA, phtalates and heavy metals. Store your food with a clear conscience - the freezer bags are compostable and form part of the natural cycle.
Suztain freezer bags are 100% compostable. The freezer bags are OK Compost HOME certified which means that the freezer bags are bio-degradable both in nature and suitable for home composting.
Do you also feel bad about keeping your food in plastic bags? Then this is the solution - Suztain freezer bags are made from patented biodegradable material based on a.o. corn starch. The bags are slightly elastic which make them more resistant to tearing due to sharp edges.
The Suztain freezer bags are suitable for refridgeration, freezing and storage of dry food at room temperature and can be used just like normal plastic freezer bags. Please note that contents will dry out faster as they can "breathe". Since the biodegradable material begins to melt at 40 C, your food needs to cool before filling into the bag.
Our bags are more opaque than normal plastic freezer bags. However, this just means that you can write anywhere on the bag - also with ballpoint pens. The bags come in 3 sizes: 2, 4 and 8 litres and at prices that all but match normal plastic bags. Whilst the bags should never end up in the water environment, they are fully degradable over time in both fresh and salt water.
The Suztain bags are OK Compost HOME (home composting) certified which is the highest level of environmental certification in Europe.
The certification also means that:
The material must degrade into water, CO2 and biomass. The materials compostability has been tested - and naturally passed - according to requirements stipulated in EU legislation. The HOME-certification tests are carried out in conditions similar to that of a forest or well maintained home composting environment.
There are stringent requirements to the contents of the biomaterial - much higher threshhold values than if the bags were 'merely' approved for food contact (of course, also these requirements are met).
So, naturally, the freezer bags from Suztain are totally free from phtalates, bisphenol and heavy metals.
The freezer bags come in more sizes. You will find the other sizes here: 4 Liter - 8 Liter
