Lebensbaum's organic practice

September 17, 2012

 Lebensbaum, a German producer of organic tea, coffee and herbs, selected Innovia Films’ compostable cellulose-based material, NatureFlex NVR, as a packagingleb material for its organic teas. The wood-based material can break down in a compost bin in just a few weeks, and it offers packing advantages, such as inherent dead fold and anti-static properties, high gloss and transparency, resistance to grease and oil, a good barrier to gases, aromas and mineral oils, and a wide heat-seal range, the company says. NatureFlex is ideally suited to box overwrap and individual flow wrap applications, according to Innovia Films. Lebensbaum said the environmentally conscious packaging fits well with the company’s organic mission.
