...and it's at least as practical as plastic. Then it must be plastic… right?
No! May we introduce: cellophane. It is made from cellulose, which is usually obtained from wood. Cellophane is therefore “glass paper”.
FOR MORE TRANSPARENCY
Why did we choose cellophane packaging? We explain it to you:
Unfortunately, not all products can be so easily wrapped in paper or cardboard
pack. Some need, for example, a food-safe or even more grease- and liquid-tight
Material. Cellophane offers all these advantages and is therefore our sustainable
Alternative to petroleum based plastic. In addition, it is biological
degradable and compostable. Only the production is of course more expensive than
plastic, since the demand for cellophane is comparatively low.
Cellophane is biodegradable and compostable according to DIN13432. This means it will decompose within 90 days in an industrial composting facility. It is best to find out in advance whether your local composting facility works in this interval. If so, you can easily dispose of your cellophane packaging in the organic waste.
Otherwise, disposal via the recycling waste, i.e. the yellow sack, is the right choice.
