This is one of the most common things for people to say to us , but it's true , all of our products are made using surprisingly old technology that has been rediscovered for the 21st Century.
Most of our products come from waste plant matter generated by the food production industry, so they don't even use virgin food stocks, so they are compostable,sustainable, made from a by product and great for the environment when they end up being composted.


We only do products that are good for environment, in a nutshell if it isn't beneficial and doesn't offer impressive environmental benefits, we just won't sell it.

Natureflex 

What's it made of? - made from FSC certified wood pulp.

What's it used for? -  Film product such as bags, windows on boxes etc.

Where's they are made? - Made in various locations around the world.

Carbon saving compared to plastic equivalentt - 100% less carbon.

Sustainable Paper / Glassine

What's it made of? - made from FSC certified wood pulp.

What's it used for? - Used for all of our bags, paper cups and paper food boxes,  Glassine is used to add windows to food boxes and bags

Where's they are made? - All of our paper products are now made in the UK.

Carbon saving compared to plastic equivalentt - 80% less carbon.

Polylatic Acid (PLA)

What's it made of? - Typically made from waste from the corn processing industry but as demand grows it's now being made from corn and not just corn waste, but it does come from low grade corn not fit for consumption.

What it used for? - Typically used to replace petrol based plastics in products such as cold cups and the lining in food boxes etc, rule of thumb is PLA is used to products made from petrol based plastics.

Where's they are made? - We are working on it but currently all of our PLA products are made in the Far East, but we are doing research on possible replacements.

Carbon saving compared to plastic equivalentt - 89% less carbon.

Palm Leaf 

What's it made of? - Typically made from waste leaves from the palm industry.

What it used for? - Typically it is used to create plates and bowls.

Where's they are made? - 100% Far Eastern made, we don't have plans to do anything similar in the UK as we don't really have palm leaves and we don't sell a lot of these type of products as most people go with the cheaper option of bagasse.

Bagasse 

What's it made of? - Typically made from waste generated by the sugar industry..

What it used for? - Typically it is used to create plates, food boxes and bowls.

Where's they are made? - 100% Far Eastern made, we are experimenting with possible UK alternatives, watch this space.

Mater-Bi

What's it made of? - Made from a cabbage type material and it has the same environmental benefits as PLA.

What it used for? - Used to make compostable bags and some films.

Where's they are made? - Made in Europe.

Just a point to end on, none of these figures include the saving from materials made from waste such as PLA and the savings if our products are composted and used instead of chemical fertlisers or compost extracted from peat, if these figures were included the carbon savings would be considerably higher.
