Made from plants , really?
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.
The only products that are truly Nature Friendly™ from harvesting to disposal. In a nutshell if it isn't ethical and environmentally positive, we don't sell it.
