Boulder Canyon Natural Foods, a unit of Inventure Foods, introduced a single-serve compostable package in conjunction with Earth Day on April 22.
The new 2-oz compostable bag of Boulder Canyon's Totally Natural kettle chips is made from wood pulp sourced from plantations that have Forestry Stewardship Council or similar certification. Additionally, the materials used in the bag are certified to meet the "Specification for Compostable Plastics" standards set by the American Society for Testing and Materials. The bags may be composted in home or industrial composters, recycled through approved organic recycling programs, or incinerated at modern incineration plants, Boulder Canyon said.
"Boulder Canyon is committed to empowering individuals to be good global citizens and to live a healthier lifestyle," said Steve Sklar, senior vice-president of marketing for Boulder Canyon. "Our new single-serve compostable package will help reduce landfill waste one bag at a time."
