All the non reusable bags are targeted by this new regulation. In fact, from now, only compostable bags and composed by bio based materials are allowed, regarding to the norm EN 13432 about packaging and the wastes generated. In fact, people are realizing that there is an urgent need to re adapt the plastic bags consumption because of all waste and pollution generated every day.

In order to comply with these guidelines, Direct imex’s biodegradable tee shirt bags are certified biobased thanks to their traceable composition of 30% starch of tapioca (corn equivalent) and 8% of complementary natural agents. This biodegradable bag contains PE which means it cannot be compostable.
Regarding the “compostable bags”, they are made from starch (60%), natural complementary agents (8%) and from poly acetate (degradable polymer). These bags do not contain PE and are accepted in a lot of countries with their high percentage of starch. Our compostable tee shirt bags are certified EN 13432.

Since the beginning of the 2000’s, searchers and politicians are more and more concerned by the protection of environment and the fight against global warning and pollution. Some important researches have been made to find alternative in several sectors, including the shopping bag. Developed in the same period, the biobased bag has been made to compete with the classic disposable bag.
Made with renewable sources, this vegetable bag presents the same physical characteristics of the traditional shopping bag. For this reason, many governments preconise an ecological transition with this food-safe plastic bag (butcher, fishmonger, baker's, fruits and vegetable or greengrocer).
Misleading information: A bio-based bag isn’t necessarily a biodegradable bag! This characterisation depends on the product used during its conception. Concerned by the environment, Direct Imex is able to offer you a whole range of ecological bags which are both biodegradable bags and compostable bags. Indeed, all our bio-based bags are made of starch.
