Overview:

Derived from annually renewable resources, good natured™ bioplastic sheets start with Ingeo™ biopolymers, giving you an environmentally friendly packaging solution with competitive cost value performance compared to traditional materials. Designed with thermoforming applications in mind, good natured™ 99% plant-based sheets comply with FDA and European requirements for food packaging and can be a drop-in material replacement for PET, RPET and PS.

Made from plants, these materials require less non-renewable energy and generate significantly less greenhouse gas in comparison to oil based plastics making them a popular choice with companies concerned about the environmental impact of their plastic products.

good natured™ SHEET MARKET APPLICATIONS:

Sustainable options for on-the-go food products and food security are growing quickly in priority for today's consumer. Those same consumers that care so much about what they eat care just as much about how their food is packaged. When packaging matters, good natured™ bioplastic sheets are an optimal solution.

Made from over 99% plant-based materials and no BPAs, phthalates or other chemicals of concern, you can now ensure your commitment to the environment extends all the way through to the packaging.
