Brabantia, Europe's Leading Steelware Designer & Manufacturer, Debuts New 100% Compostable Waste Bin Liners in the U.S.

There is an important difference between "biodegradable" and "oxodegradable" when it comes to responsible waste management. As Earth Day approaches, Brabantia Solid Company, Europe's leading designer and manufacturer of home steelware products, is introducing a completely environmentally friendly waste can liner solution. Brabantia's new 100% compostable trash can and waste bin liners will completely biodegrade into natural substances that are better for the earth than plastic or oxodegradable bags. Don't be fooled by other bags that call themselves safe for the planet - only 100% compostable bags are truly safe for the soil and for the Earth.

Woodcliff Lake, NJ (PRWEB) April 7, 2010 -- Brabantia Solid Company, one of Europe’s oldest and most ecologically-minded designers and manufacturers of high end, high quality and functional home steelware products, has launched a new line of 100% biodegradable trash can liners to fit its stable of home waste bins and recycling cans.

"Brabantia is well known as one of the greenest, most earth friendly manufacturing companies in Europe,” said Nicole Gnudi, Managing Director of Brabantia USA. “Because we feel it’s important to be environmentally responsible not only in Europe, but also in America and wherever we do business, we have expanded our line of bin liners to include an earth-friendly version made of pure cornstarch which will completely biodegrade into natural compounds that are safe for the planet. We are so pleased to be making this announcement as we approach Earth Day,” Gnudi said.

"Many U.S. and European manufacturers sell plastic bin liners which they claim are environmentally safe,” Gnudi continues. "Most of these liners are made of plastics that are oxodegradable – not biodegradable. There’s a big difference. Brabantia’s liners are made of 100% cornstarch and are therefore completely biodegradable. Unfortunately, products that are only oxodegradable break down in landfills into smaller compounds that are toxic to the soil, water and air. Also, because of the additives used in oxodegradable bags, they are actually more toxic for the environment than plastic. Brabantia is proud to be able to help consumers manage and recycle waste easily and effectively in their homes, while also respecting and protecting the Earth."

Brabantia’s new line of biodegradable bin liners include:

10 litre – Designed to fit Brabantia’s 10 litre waste cans, including Built-in Bin, and the 10 and 12 litre Pedal Bins. Code C. Price: $8 for a bag of 20.

18 litre – Designed to fit Brabantia’s 18 litre waste cans, including the Built-in Separator. Code Q.
Price: $9 for a bag of 20.

In keeping with Brabantia’s tradition of environmental responsibility, the new bin liners are packaged in bags that are also 100% compostable. The new bin liners are simple to use – just match the letter code and color on the outside of the bag with the letter and color inside your Brabantia bin to find the perfect size.
