For customers who wish to eliminate plastic from their window-patched cartons, we will use a plant-based, biodegradable window patch material. This film is made from wood-pulp –a natural and renewable resource. It is certified as biodegradable to EN 13432, ASTM D6400 and Vincotte OK Compost Home. The wood pulp is sourced from PEFC (Programme For the Endorsement of Forest Certification) certified managed forestry.
