The Village Bakery is the first bakery to pack its breads in completely biodegradable and compostable bags! Not only are their breads organic, made without additives and baked using renewable energy but the packaging naturally decomposes!
The bags are made from Mater-bi film (Mater-Bi is a proprietary starch-based plastic developed by Novamont S.P.A. ) that will break down to carbon dioxide, water and organic humus with no toxic residue. The Mater-bi film contains raw materials from both renewable and sustainable sources and contains non-genetically modified starch.
The only concern with Mater-bi is that it is made in Italy. This is a concern when you take into account how the product is delivered and if it is sustainable.
