WASHINGTON :California-based manufacturer of custom plastic bags-Lindamar Industries Inc announced its new line of certified compostable bags made from renewable starch and biodegradable polymers. According to the company officials, the new line of product meet all international standards including ASTM International’s D6400 and European Standard EN13432 certification requirements.
Designed for the collection of kitchen trash and disposal of food and yard waste in composts and composting facilities, the compostable bags are designed to:
