Our Product Streams

Compostable

Following 10 years of research, development, and trials, Rootree™ is now able to offer compostable packaging, made using renewable, bio-based materials. We use wood pulp and GMO-free corn to create a pouch that is fully compostable in ~ 8 months. Neat, right?

Recyclable

Due to demand from our customers to create better alternatives, Rootree™ also offers flexible packaging that is recyclable under code #2. This packaging is made in 2 layers, from one material, with no lamination process involved.

Conventional

Since not every product is the right fit for our other options, Rootree™ also offers flexible packaging made from conventional materials. Due to its multi-layered structure, this packaging is difficult, if not impossible, to recycle in most municipalities.
