POLYBAGS & MAILERS

Our compostable packaging is made from 100% Cornstarch which uses renewable agricultural derived starch to make bioplastic polymers that can be made into oil-based plastic substitutes. Cornstarch plastic products are waterproof and they look and feel just like regular plastic, but they are 100% biodegradable and home compostable.  

 

CORNSTARCH PRODUCTS ARE PREFERABLE MAINLY BECAUSE

  • They are made from renewable plant material.

  • They replace fossil fuel-based products.

  • They are theoretically recyclable if systems are correctly put in place.

  • They are biodegradable and compostable at the end of their useful lives. 

  • Biodegradation time for our cornstarch packaging is about 3 months.  

  • Producing PLA uses 65 % less energy than producing conventional plastics.

  • It also generates 68 % fewer greenhouse gases and contains no toxins.


 

SHELF LIFE

9-12 months provided they are stored in a dark dry place.

 

HOW TO COMPOST

Place them in your compost bin!

The adhesive strips are not currently compostable, however, once the strips covering the adhesive have been removed upon opening the packaging, they are left with a 100% compostable product to dispose of in the home compost.

 

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN COMPOSTABLE AND BIODEGRADABLE?

A biodegradable product simply breaks down into smaller pieces of plastic called ‘micro-plastics’ which contaminate the environment and gets into our food chain. Certified home-compostable products break down to safe worm food.
