Compostable Bar Wrappers
FlexLeaf compostable bar wrappers offer high-barrier qualities, optimum machinability, and the sustainable properties that your brand is looking to embrace. Some benefits include, but are not limited to:
- reducing reliance on petroleum and plastic
- giving your consumers a good story in the hopes they can continue to make more eco-conscious decisions
- bringing a value-added proposition to your product(s)
If you’re looking to compare the performance of FlexLeaf to conventional films, you can always ask a sales rep to cost out both options to see what works best for you. Since bio-based film technology is changing so rapidly, the resins and films are not yet commoditized. As a result, there can be an increase to the unit costs (vs. conventional films) Despite that, brands are eager to switch to compostable films to share their commitment to environmental stewardship.
FlexLeaf offers both clear and metalized films that are suitable for industrial composting. If you’re looking for both home and industrial composting certification, you’ll have to use dual-clear film (non-metalized). If you don’t want the product showing, we can print a flood white for coverage of the product.

While adopting bio-based films and packaging is not an “overnight” process, it doesn’t have to be painful. Our films are made to have comparable (if not enhanced) barrier and machinability properties. That means, your operations team, or co-packing facility, won’t have to reinvent the wheel when it comes to keeping up with line speeds and product freshness. Making the switch to compostable bar wrappers should feel seamless…and with FlexLeaf, it does!
