From waste to Life
Partnered with United Nations Development Programme, we endeavor to convert specific latitudes in Plastic Free Zones by 2021.
AMS·Compostable bags are certified under the American Society for Testing and Materials standards: ASTM D6400 – D6868. Content as bio-based material bags; our plastic material is assured as biological vegetable organic material coming from a renewable source.
Disposed off correctly, AMS compostable plastic can have a minimal impact on the planet and can be re-integrated into soil within weeks or months. The lowes impact of disposal is achieved by sending the plastic to your local industrial composting facility; where it can undergo biodegradation; or if you are a garden lover to put them in your home composting bins, where it will deteriorate quickly and disappear becoming organic fertilizer.
We are continually peering with governments and private organizations who seek to improve the responsibility of plastic consumption as a mechanism to protect the environment and therefore ourselves.
Our Mission: Manufacture and distribute compostable plastic bags made with 100% natural organic materials, promoting responsible consumption of plastic and aligned with green and sustainable economies.
Our Vision: To remain as a leader who is driving the change from harmful plastic to new green ways of living, continuously expanding our offer of biodegradable, compostable and environmentally friendly products.
AMS Bags are made of organic raw material:
Certified by highest-world quality standards
Our products are certified to the highest compostable standards:
Is the standard specification for biodegradable plastics used as coatings on paper and other compostable substrates.
Is the certification organization of the TÜV Rhineland Group (German Technical Inspection Agency) and DIN, the German Standards Institute. It shows the conformity of products and services with the European composting standard. EN 13432 (for packaging) or EN 14995 (for plastic materials in general).
This standard specifies the procedures and requirements for the identification and labeling of plastics and products made of plastic, which are suitable for recovery through aerobic composting.
21 CFR 177.2420
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is the United States government agency responsible for the regulation of biological products. Our products are approved under their 21 CFR 177.2420 standard - Resin and Polymeric Coatings.
It is the certification mark (logo) of the compostable scheme.
It denotes the Vinçotte certification that considers a product as "compostable at home". Vinçotte is a Belgian accredited inspection and certification organization.
We are one of the only few companies in the world that have this certification of domestic composting based on the European standard EN 13432.
Principal certifier of compostable products for USA and Canada. Its strict certification program guarantees that products and packaging that display the BPI logo have been tested and verified independently according to scientifically based standards.
