Its award-winning ReEarth compostable and bio-based films are made with raw materials that allow for the quickest composability. Popular ReEarth films are USDA BioPreferred, Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI) Certified, and successfully passed real-world testing through the Compost Manufacturers Association. Some ReEarth compostable film solutions are certified as Lomi Approved™. With a Lomi-approved package, one places the empty package into the Lomi countertop composter together with food scraps. This process will turn the items into usable soil.
S-OneLP also offers ReTreve, a recyclable family of films, made of all polyethylene monoweb coextruded materials. These flexible packaging films meet the Sustainable Packaging Coalition guidelines for store drop-off recycling through the NexTrex and How2Recycle programs. These programs collect the films, which are recycled into new bags or composite decking.
