The Better Packaging co
I’m made from plants, corn to be exact, with a man-made binding agent added for flexibility.
And the best bit … I can be composted at home! Yip, when you’ve finished using me, just put me in with your food scraps and garden waste, and before you know it, worms will be eating me for breakfast. Better for the environment, better for our oceans, a better tomorrow.
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). We have a really detailed blog post about PBAT and what it’s made of here.

In a ‘standard’ home compost, the compostable courier 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 happen slower, but it will happen. The Australian Standard is one of the most rigorous in the world and includes a worm toxicity test which means that our comPOST Packs are safe to be eaten by the little, pink wriggly guys.
Can they go in a worm farm? Yes they can. Our eco-friendly packaging is certified home compostable AS 5810 which includes a worm toxicity test … and these courier satchels pass with flying colours.
