Carrier Bags made from Potato Starch!

Elliott Packaging are excited & proud to announce our newest eco product: Potato Starch carrier bags! A perfect alternative for retail outlets, food stores and more as an alternative to plastic bags. Many businesses across the world are switching to this new material, and we are glad to be one of them! The carrier bags are in the style of punched out handle, so provide adequate strength for a range of products.

Disposal of potato starch bags:

These new style of carrier bags are made using potato starch film, making them 100% compostable! To dispose of, simply place them:

  • home compost heap
  • green garden waste bin
  • food waste bin

It’s that simple, and is much better for the environment that the plastic alternative!



The potato starch is currently only available in a standard carrier bag size of 380mm width x 450mm height with a 75mm (overall) bottom gusset. However, we do plan to bring out more sizes & the ability to create custom sizes! The film is certified home compostable & even complies with European standard EN13432. The bags have a punched out handle, and can have a turnover top to add some extra strength around the handle area.

Printing on potato starch film:

As with all our products, these bags are not only eco-friendly, but can also be personalized! Using fully compostable inks, there is a maximum ink coverage of 50%, and can be printed in up to 3 colours on both sides!

Lead time:

The approx. lead time for these at the moment is 4 weeks. However, this is dependent on the order quantity, as for orders on a larger scale the lead time may be slightly increased.
