Our eco friendly packaging solutions:

Biodegradable / Compostable Labels

Did you know that generic stickers and labels used by people day to day are NOT recyclable?  To solve that, we started producing biodegradable as well as compostable labels which use biodegradable and compostable adhesives in combination with a whole range of paper and biodegradable film face stocks! Using compostable labels ensures the entire packaging product can be suitably composted and won’t end up in landfill!

Why us?

All of our compostable labels are correctly certified and our recycled paper face stock is developed from 100% post consumer waste. Our recycled paper face stock also converts faster compared to conventionally face stocks and is manufactured without chlorine bleaching whilst still offering the same appearance. The recycled paper labels also reduces energy consumption and consequently greenhouse gas emissions and waste during its production. 

Materials:

  • “OK Compost” certified adhesive, which is recognised as both biodegradable and compostable
  • Bio-based PE Film, mostly made from sugarcane ethanol and is available in white and clear
  • Marble Base facestock, made from calcium carbonate derived from marble mining waste (80%) and together with up to 20% recycled high density polyethylene
  • 100% Recycled Paper
  • 100% Cotton Label Paper
  • 90% Sugarcane fibre paper
  • Paper made with recycled agro-industrial waste

Home-compostable Flexible Packaging

We make pouches from NatureFlex™ films, which are cellulose based, one of the most naturally abundant organic materials on earth.

This cellulose is derived from renewable wood pulp that is sustainably harvested from FSC managed forests. NatureFlex™ films are certified ASTM D6400 for bio-based content, and depending on the grade of film, the bio-based content can vary from 90% to 99%.

Benefits

  • Certified for home composting by ‘OK Compost Home’ by TUV Austria and aligns with the Australian standard AS5810 approved by the ABA, 26 weeks in your garden compost and it’s gone!
  • Resistant to grease, oil and fats, the films are microwave and conventional oven safe
  • Suitable for printed / overlap / flow-wrap
  • You will have a coating that helps maximize the shelf life of your products and enhances the presentation of the products!
  • Our valves and zips are combined with compostable laminate materials in line with the EN 13432 Industrial standard to ensure the packaging can be easily composted at a commercial facility and separated from landfill without the hassle of removing any components! 
  • Our paper for the outside layer of our packaging is FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) Certified Paper and so it is responsibly sourced from environmentally managed forests. When composted, this paper also enhances soil quality.
  • The multi layered film material inside the pouch also acts as a safeguard to preserve the aroma of your products against moisture and oxygen and prevents UV damage. 
  • The inside film layer provides excellent heat sealability and is in line with Industrial Compostable Standards such as the Australian Standard AS4736-2006, The International Organisation for Standardisation ISO 17088, ASTM International ATSM D6400, and the European Standard EN13432 and complies with stringent food contact conditions

Our compostable mailers are the perfect solution for mailing your products in style in a way that benefits the environment!

Certifications

We carefully select our suppliers to provide certification that all of our final products are in line with current International compostable standards such as the Home Compostable Australian Standard AS 5810, The Australiasian Bioplastics Association’s ABAP 20009, OK Compost Home S0563 TUV Austria and the BPI Compostable in industrial facilities Certification 10528689.

Materials

Our mailers are made from a combination of PBAT (a fully compostable co-polymer) and PLA which is a biodegradable material derived from renewable plant material such as corn starch. The material is light, strong and flexible as a result of the properties of PBAT and PLA, making them perfect for E Commerce brands in transporting products such as clothing, fashion accessories, cosmetics, books and a range of other items!

Styles and sizes

Choose from a variety of standard sizes and colours for your mailers or utilise our custom size and printing services (our minimum order quantity is 30,000 pieces) We can create a fully compostable mailer using any design suited to your vision and brand.

Note

For optimum quality, we recommend using these mailers within 10-12 months of purchasing.

Once the mailers have been used, strip off the stickers and adhesive strips and then they can be diverted with other organic matter and can biodegrade by themselves into water, carbon dioxide and organic matter within approximately 90 days. They can also be composted industrially and biodegrade into organic biomass.
