Cascades’ food waste bag, manufactured in Canada and made of 100% recycled fibres, is perfect for home composting. The bag consists of a double layer to prevent leakage. They are sold by pack of 40 bags.
Since its beginnings, Cascades has been committed to the transformation of recycled materials as a means of waste reduction. The food waste bag was created to promote composting and encourage people to adopt this sustainable practise, keeping in mind Quebec’s waste materials management policy to recycle 60% of organic matter by the year 2015. For those at Cascades, recovery is a practise that, in addition to recycling, allows us to reduce the amount of waste that ends up in landfills.
