UCAN Products to Market Mirel-Based Compost Bags

UCAN Products, a company that supplies consumer products, which makes the people to remain eco-responsible, has chosen Mirel bioplastic kitchen compost bags manufactured by Telles, a combined venture between Archer Daniels Midland and Metabolix.

The arrangement will make UCAN as the first ever company to market Mirel-based compost bags for the purchase of consumers. It has chosen Mirel bioplastic for its durability and quicker composting attributes for use in composting facilities in manufacturing companies. The bags are certified by the Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI) as D6400 recyclable. UCAN has designed the three-gallon bags for use along with its compost waste bin to be introduced shortly. The bags also can be used in normal sized kitchen compost containers.

According to Carolyn Yecies Heller, who leads UCAN Products as its founder and president, the bio-based Mirel bags are chosen for their easy to composting quality thus doing away with the requirement of removing the wastes from the bags before their disposal. He added that it will offer a convenient solution for those who chose to compost their wastes.

Bob Engle, Telles’s general manager, called the UCAN arrangement as an important development for their Mirel-based products portfolio. He added that a number of big companies are currently opting for naturally degradable products to meet the growing demand of the customers and to offer eco-friendly options.
