Goodbye plastic, Hello compostable satchels!

Our satchel store is taking a break.

We'll make sure to let you know when it is back up and running again.


What exactly are they made of?

Corn starch (from corn not fit for consumption), PLA (Polylactide, which is made from waste corn too and other plants) and PBAT (Polybutyrate Adipate Terephthalate). 

How long will they take to biodegrade?

In a ‘standard’ home compost, the satchels have been certified (AS5810 -2010) to biodegrade within 180 days, i.e. approx 6 months. Under commercial composting conditions, it would happen much faster. And as litter (e.g. under a tree) it would compost slower, but it will still happen.

How long will they last on the shelf?

Because they're made from plants not plastic, it's important to store the compostable satchels in a cool, dry place. If stored correctly, they will be tough enough to send parcels up to 6 months after purchase.
