Compostable Packaging

ComPOSTable packaging

We’re pleased to announce that all online orders will now be shipping in compostable bags. Made from corn starch (using corn not fit to eat) these bags are Australian Standard certified to biodegrade within 180 days in a standard home compost!

What are these bags made from?

  • Corn starch (from corn that is not fit to eat)
  • PLA (Polylactide, which is made from waste corn too and other plants)
  • PBAT (Polybutyrate Adipate Terephthalate)

How long will they take to biodegrade?
If you have a standard home compost, these bags will biodegrade within 180 days. If you don't have a compost, they will still break down in landfill, just take a little longer.

Can they go in a worm farm?
Yes they can. These bags are certified to Australian Standard 5810 which includes a worm toxicity test. Worms won't turn their nose up at these bags.

What do I do if I don't have a compost at home?
These bags can be put in your standard garbage bin where they will still biodegrade, just not as quickly as in a compost. Or the satchel can be returned to Mont where we will take care of things.

Larger items will ship in cardboard boxes.
