Store them like red wine

Because they’re designed to break down - our Compostable satchels have a shelf life of 6 months under normal storage conditions. To ensure they age well, keep them the way you would a bottle of wine: in a cool, dark place, like a filing cabinet, office drawer, or cupboard.

For POLLAST!C satchels you don’t need to worry about a shelf life.


What are these satchels made of?

The Compostable satchels are made of plant-based compostable material, like 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).

The POLLAST!C satchels are made of 100% recyclable Ocean-bound plastics*.

How long will they take to break down?

In a ‘standard’ home compost, the compostable satchels have been certified (AS5810 -2010) to biodegrade within 180 days, i.e. approximately 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.

The POLLAST!C satchels can be recycled with soft plastics and the Australia Recycle Smart Program.

How long will they last on the shelf?

If stored correctly (inside a cool, dark place), the compostable satchels can last up to 6 months after purchase.

POLLAST!CS can last a long time since they’re recyclable.
