Quebec bag maker ties things up at camp

The city of Montreal is using locally-made compostable bags for its Zero Waste Day Camps. Polykar, based in Montreal, manufactures

polyethylene film and packaging.

The company’s compostable bags were selected for the city’s Zero Waste Day Camps this month. Participants at the summer camps recycle and compost while learning about waste management.

Polykar’s bags are certified by the Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI) and the Bureau de normalisation du Québec (BNQ). The company manufactures the bags in Montreal through a co-branding agreement with BASF.
