Sustainable package company Eco-Products, Boulder, Colorado, introduced a compostable wrap ideal for swaddling sandwiches, snacks and more. The product can meet the growing demand for carryout packaging for restaurants.  

The company says the wrap is made from wax paper, is ASTM D6868 compliant and is certified by the Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI) as compostable in commercial facilities. It works as a basket liner, food wrap or pickup sheet.     

“These wraps are both stylish and functional, making them ideal for food service providers offering carryout and delivery,” says Nicole Tariku, director of marketing for Eco-Products. “They also are sustainable, simplifying cleanup because both the wrap and any leftover food can be tossed into the compost bin.”   

Jointly developed with Eco-Products’ parent company, Novolex, Hartsville, South Carolina, the new wrap offers several benefits:   

  • works with both hot and cold snacks and sandwiches;  

  • made from renewable resources;  

  • grease- and moisture-resistant;  

  • ASTM D6868 compliant and BPI-certified compostable in commercial compost facilities only; and,  

  • features print on the wrap that includes the Eco-Products and BPI logos, assuring customers that the product is made from sustainable materials and can be put into the compost bin after use.   

“Creating this new wrap demonstrates our commitment to developing compostable products across the Novolex line,” says Adrianne Tipton, chief technology officer of Novolex. “We’re seeing increased demand for more sustainable products, so we want to provide as many options as possible.”  

Eco-Products offers a wide range of plates, cups, utensils and containers made from renewable or postconsumer recycled resources. Learn more about this new food wrap here.
