Our Biodegradable Plastic Packaging
We are very pleased to say that most of our products are now sent out in biodegradable plastic bags (with the exception of mini samples - which are packaged in recyclable plastic bags).
Our biodegradable bags are created from Biofilm.
Biofilm (PLA - Poly-Lactic-Acid) is created from corn, potato or other starch/sugar sources.
Please don't confuse biofilm with oxo-degradable plastics which do not degrade in landfill. Biofilm is FULLY BIODEGRADABLE & COMPOSTABLE. This process can happen in either commercial or home composting or landfill. The biodegrading process will take around 45 days & the film breaks down into CO2, H2O & ecotoxic free biomass (compost).
Please note: Biofilm is not suitable for disposal via plastic recycling bins as it is created from renewable plant materials, not petrochemicals!
