Our bags are a blown film product – pellets of compostable resin are melted down inside a large machine called an extruder. This liquid is then blown through a die head which creates a bubble to a specific diameter based on the desired bag size. From there, the bubble travels up at a height which allows it to cool, so that when it is gusseted, folded, and wound onto itself, it is already in solid form and thus will not stick to itself. Lastly, it is either transferred to rolls for conversion into bags at a later date or is fed directly via a series of tensioned winders through machines that seal and perforate the bags, dictating the length of each bag.
