The SUNRAYS Mandarin BIO bags are truly an impressive display of sustainable packaging, right from the raw materials stage through processing.

The raw materials used in this netting is 100% beechwood, which is recovered from the thinning of FSC®– or PEFC-certified forests. The beechwood is then transformed into spun-dyed modal fibers in compliance with the strictest environmental standards and with a zero-carbon footprint.

The netting will biodegrade within 12 weeks of disposal and are also certified home compostable.

Vandenberg we are constantly looking at solutions that promote sustainability, from the beginning of the supply chain at the farm all the way through to the end of life of the product and packaging.
