UK packaging solution provider Parkside has enhanced its commitment to sustainability by developing a high barrier compostable pack. 

The new pack is part of the Park2Nature range of industrial and home compostable packaging solutions.

It is specifically designed for household cleaning brand ‘Homethings’ and its range of cleaning tablets.

Homethings co-founder Michael Aubrey said: “Parkside’s willingness to work with us enabled us to push the boundaries of our packaging and create a customised laminate structure that is perfect for our cleaning product.

“The high moisture and oxygen barriers enable us to deliver a great product, while staying true to our sustainability values.”

Parkside leveraged bio-based paper and metallised NatureFlex cellulose films for Homethings. Renewable flexible packaging films provider Futamura manufactures the films produced sustainably sourced wood pulp.

Stratus France is responsible for printing on the packaging.

The fully home compostable packaging will break down completely within 26 weeks. It is also tested for eco-toxicity and various other criteria against EN 13432 regulations.

Parkside new business development manager Staci Bye said: “This was a fascinating project for us to be involved in.

“Homethings put a real focus on responsible design and their values mirror our own, aligning perfectly with our Park2Nature range.

“This synergy enabled us to create an amazing product for them and a fantastic advantage for the consumer.”

Parkside innovation team has creation of more than 20 accredited home and industrial compostable structures.

Earlier this month, Parksid collaborated with Addo Food Group to manufacture a sustainable and reclosable pack for its range of Tesco mini sausage rolls and pasties.

In November last year, Parkside reached a new collaboration agreement with France-based supplier and distributor Stratus Packaging.
