Last year Chrysal introduced an innovative compostable flower food sachet. The sachet is made of industrial compostable material which will result in a valuable reduction of plastic waste. Since the introduction the sachet has had almost 1.5 million sachets sold so far.
The materials used to produce the Compostable Sachets are bio based and the sachet is industrially compostable. This means the packaging is compostable under high temperatures in the same time as a banana skin or orange peel. Using bio based materials means saving fossil resources by using biomass. The Compostable Sachet was nominated for a Greenovation Award 2019 by Royal FloraHolland, an award given to a sustainably produced product or concept. All Greenovation nominees will also be presented at the IPM Essen in January 28th till 31st.
Freddie’s Flowers was one of the first customers to introduce the compostable sachet. Freddie from Freddie’s Flowers: “Chrysal is an excellent partner in sustainability. They have created this new flower food packaging which decomposes in the same amount of time as a banana peel. The Compostable sachet goes really well with our flower box and is a very exciting addition to our product.”
Chrysal recently introduced a complete line of sustainable sachets, including also the recyclable plastic sachet and paper sachet.
