A Canadian Coffee roasting company, Pistol & Burnes has released a new fully compostable packaging solution for its product. The package incorporates cellulose-based NatureFlex from Innovia Films. Most coffees are packaged in foils or paper bags with plastic liners that usually just end up in the land fill. The bag for the Farmer First brand by Pistol & Burnes is fully compostable in a home composting system. As a packaging solution, NatureFlex was the most eco-friendly choice as it is made from natural wood. Not only does this type of packaging withstand the wear and tear of manufacturing and transport, it also lives up to the brand identity of Fair Trade and their Farmer First organic brand name.
