Celebration Packaging has announced the certification of its white bagasse takeaway clamshells, dinnerware and chip trays as TÜV Home Compostable and PFAS-free.
These environmentally-conscious alternatives mark a significant shift away from PFAS commonly found in fast food packaging and cookware.
In a statement, Celebration Packaging managing director Nick Burton said: “To ensure that the bagasse fibre clamshells, chip trays and dinnerware are free from these forever chemicals, we arranged for SGS, an internationally renowned testing, inspection and certification company, to test them. The SGS test report shows that no PFAS and similar chemicals such as PFCA’s / PFOS’s / PFOA’s/PFHxS’s were detected.”
The PFAS challenge
PFAS pose potential risks to human health and the environment due to their non-degradable nature.
