As green as can be

Had a lovely lady ask the other day about our “Eco” bags, despite the sickness all around us its was good to see that folks are still concerned for the envioroment and it occured to me that this info might not (yet) be as clear as it should be!

Packaging is always a tricky subject for food products of course. The line has to be walked between keeping the product fresh and yet not generating waste that ultimately is bad for the environment.

Our “Eco” bags are made from a natural starch based product and contain Zero plastics. They can in fact be put directly in your composter!

To Quote the supplier:

All our biofilm (and cellophane) bags are fully biodegradable and compostable which means that they break down to CO2, H20 and biomass which can then be reused in the eco system to make new plants. This will happen in either in home or commercial composting but in commercial composting the temperature will be higher and the process is much quicker. In a colder home composter it will just take longer.”
