3. Compostable peanut bag wins in the arena

End-of-life options for foodservice packages are leaning toward compostable solutions rather than recycling because of the likely contamination from any remaining contents. When sports stadiums look for sustainable opportunities, they now have another avenue for diverting waste from landfills and cutting waste management costs.

This certified compostable bag for peanuts in the shell replaces typical polypropylene film and is made from renewable resources. Compostability is made possible by binding a printed barrier layer and a sealant layer with a compostable water-based adhesive.

TC Transcontinental Packaging earned a Gold Award for Sustainability for this development.
