Kingly is a pioneer in this packaging as we are the first to bring it to market in the socks industry.
Our socks are packaged as standard into individual compostable self-seal bags.
Customers appreciate the change to compostable and all welcome it as the sock bag of the future. Embrace the change to compostable. It is free!
Why is compostable the best?
This is a plasticizer-free and GMO-free thermoplastic material based on natural potato starch. Once disposed of, the bag will breakdown in approximately 8 weeks.
For purposes of eco sustainability, we recommend the compostable bag. It is slightly milky in colour with a nice sanitized touch. It is the most eco sustainable sock bag available.
IT CONFORMS TO EN DIRECTIVE 13432.
If bioplastics have proven their compostability according to international standards, they can be used in industrial composting plants. Products can provide proof of their compostability by successfully meeting the harmonised European standard, EN 13432 or EN 14995. These two standards define the technical specification for the compostability of bioplastics products:
- requirements for packaging recoverable through composting and biodegradation
- this is a harmonised European standard linked to the European Directive on Packaging and Packaging Waste (94/62/EC). It allows for the presumption of conformity with essential requirements of the Directive. It has been translated and implemented in all the European Member States.
