COMPOSTABLE PACKAGING

Compostable packaging is packaging that when left in the environment will decay into beneficial biomass; carbon-based organic molecules that contain hydrogen, oxygen and nitrogen and, unlike conventional forms of packaging, no toxic chemicals or harmful particles which can end up seeping back into our soils, waterways or airways. What compostable packaging will leave behind, however, which traditional types of packaging do not, is nutrient-rich humus; black, jelly-like organic matter that improves the health of our soils and strengthens ecosystems. Get in touch to find out what compostable packaging we hold.

BIODEGRADABLE PACKAGING

Biodegradable packaging is produced using biopolymers, which are molecules often found in living organisms, like cellulose and proteins. This means they can be safely consumed, degrade quickly, and often be created from waste plant products. 3 of our most popular compostable packaging includes films, coatings, and bags.
