German producer of organic tea, coffee and herbs Lebensbaum has selected Innovia Films’ compostable cellulose-based material, NatureFlex NVR for packing its range of organic teas.
Lebensbaum managing director Dr Achim Mayr said introducing packaging materials based on renewable resources is part of the company’s sustainability strategy.
"NatureFlex™ combines the packaging quality and functionality we are looking for with our ambitioned environmental consciousness, which fits with our mission," Mayr added.
According to Innovia, the film begins life as a natural product, wood and breaks down in a home compost bin and offers advantages for packing and converting.
NatureFlex NVR offers inherent dead fold and anti-static properties, transparency, resistance to grease and oil, good barrier to gases, aromas and mineral oils and a wide heat-seal range.
The two-side coated, heat sealable renewable and certified compostable NatureFlex NVR film has an intermediate moisture barrier, ideally suited to box overwrap and individual flow wrap applications.
