More and more countries and regions around the world are moving to ban lightweight plastic bags for environmental reasons. If you're looking to make an environmentally-conscious choice, Detpak has an extensive range of paper bags for all types of food and retail businesses. You can choose from traditional "checkout" bags, carry bags with a handle, take away food bags and die-cut handle bags. View our full range of bags.
I am eco™ products are certified as compostable when placed in commercial composting facilities. If the products are disposed of in landfill, they will not compost.
A circular economy is an economic system aimed at minimising waste and valuing resources by keeping products and materials in use for as long as possible. This regenerative approach contrasts the traditional linear economy, which has a 'take, make, dispose' model of production. This means that materials constantly flow around a ‘closed loop’ system, rather than being used once and then discarded. A circular economy can be achieved through long-lasting design, reuse, and recycling.

"Biodegradable" means a product will break down into natural elements. There are currently no industry standards of what makes a product "biodegradable". "Compostable" means the product will break down into natural elements within 90 days when treated in a commercial composting facility, as defined by European standard EN13432.
I am eco™ hot cups are compostable with a PLA lining, this means they require industrial composting facilities in order to break down. The biofilm lining mean the cups are not suitable for recycling. If you are looking for a recyclable takeaway cup, we recommend RecycleMe™.
Some of our products do feature a recycled component, while others are made of 100% virgin material. The choice of which is used depends on the structural requirements for each product to ensure it performs at the required level and is fit for purpose. Please enquire regarding a specific product you would like more information on.
