We use organically grown corn from food production and the bag is OK Compost HOME certified.
This means that you can collect your bio waste in a bag that is degradable in nature under the right circumstances together with the food. When you use a MAISTIC waste bag you – support decrease of production and use of traditional non-degradable plastic – use a bio-based and non-polluting product – can safely collect apples or other types of food in the bag as the bag is food contact safe and approved for contact with edibles.
It does not contain any harmful plastic resin substances like phthalates and bisphenol – can decompose it together with your kitchen bio-waste in a suited compost bin to create rich soil for your garden. However, be careful NOT to throw the bag direcly in the garden with your other garden waste as it will end up in nature by the wind. No waste, compostable bags included, should end up in nature!
The patented bio-plastic material is based on organically grown and GMO-free corn. The rounded bottom of the bag enforces it and minimizes risk of leakage. MAISTIC recommends a new waste bag every second day to avoid too much heavy waste decomposing too quickly with the bag, and to avoid bacteria and bad smell.
The waste bags comes in a box which makes it easy to find the right bag from the kitchen drawer. The box is marked with a ‘use before’ date as the compostable bag has a natural shelf life of 1 year.
The compostable bags for retail from Maistic all carries the label OK Compost HOME that shows that the bags are tested degradable in well maintained home compost.
About the brand
At Maistic we give people, businesses, food producers – basically EVERYONE – alternatives to the everyday traditional plastic products and packaging.
Maistic is Expert in plastic free and compostables and dedicated to:
1) Certified compostable bioplastic and other materials that can be certified compostable
2) Plastic free and microplastic free alternatives to typical plastic products for consumers, retail, HORECA, food producers, take away etc.
Maistic Bio Group started in 2015 as a family-owned business. Today in 2020, we have two smaller investors and we are co-funded by the The Danish Growth Fund, a national state investment fund, which enables us grow our business into still more countries and continents and develop more plastic free and compostable products at supermarket prices.
That’s what we live for and work for every single day: Plastic free options for everyone at supermarket prices.
MAISTIC provide products as well as knowledge. We help consumers, municipal and state, retail, wholesellers, food production industry, NGO’s, decision makers in companies and politicians to with knowledge and understanding of green recycling, microplastics and biopolymers and businesses with the development of greener solutions.
‘MAISTIC’ is made from two words: Maïze (corn) + Plastic = Maistic
Being committed to plastic free makes us a credible partner to make campaigns with organisations and NGO’s. E.g. Maistic were the first retail partner with the Danish NGO Plastic Change with whom we introduced the Maistic Cloth in 1300 Danish stores.
We made a large campaign with the Danish Dogs Association, DKK, too, reminding Danes to only leave paw prints (not bags). By that we introduced Home Compostable Poop Bags, later a 1st prize winner among dog owners in Dutch Television.
Students and teachers from grade school to universities are very much in our hearts too. We simply love to educate and help students with their inventions, ideas and interest in making their own future better and greener.
Our goal is not just being your delivery guy. We’re always a partner. Every time. The innovative trusted partner, who will go far to find the best solutions for your needs.
And in the media. We insist on using our voice and knowledge for the good of mankind – plastic pollution, microplastics and harmfull chemicals in plastics are too important not to fight. It is our duty to tell you the things, what the traditional plastic industry does not tell you.
We allow ourselves to have an opinion. An opinion meaning there are products, materials, chemicals and additives we will never sell. There should be no doubt, that MAISTIC® is good quality and not dangerous for you, nor our common future. We work to make the world better and FOR LESS PLASTIC IN THIS WORLD.
