Return to Dust – 100% Recyclable Pouches

Here at WePack we take our responsibilities to the environment extremely seriously. We have a new eco-friendly packaging solution, which we are delighted to announce. Pouches are the environmentally friendly packaging innovation you have been waiting for.

What are Return to Dust Pouches?

Return to dust pouches are the very first plastic-free, compostable food pouch made entirely from plant-based products. These robust pouches are made from paper and can still be heat-sealed to store both dry and moist food products. The package is turned into a pre-formed stand-up pouch for space saving and reducing transport costs over glass jars or plastic packaging alternatives.

Can they really only be made of paper?

We’ll say it again as we know it’s hard to believe. The Pouch is the first of its kind, fully recyclable, 100% paper pouches. The paper is cleaned, not bleached and features 3 levels of moisture resistance, with the highest being similar to a plastic laminate (1/2 CC per day).

There are three kinds of paper that can be used. Which are Low, medium and high moisture barrier papers for different products, offering greater shelf life options. Extra cost with the higher barrier paper.

What products are suited to Pouches?

Our eco-friendly food packaging is suitable for anything granular, such as salt, spices, flour or seeds. You could also store small solid products such as jerky, granola, cereal, chocolate chips or popcorn. If you are looking to add your own branding, we can use food safe inks and provide your pouches plain or printed at your request. The only real limit is your imagination but we do recommend not filling with product beyond 1kg in weight due to the paper construction.
