You can wipe them out and reuse them (but please don’t do this if they’ve been used to store meat).

What are the compostable bags made with?

Our compostable range is manufactured from corn starch bio-resins, PLA and PBAT. This new compostable material is designed to degrade in moist conditions and return to carbon dioxide and water without leaving harmful residues in the process. Our compostable products are all certified to strict international standards and we go so far as to use non-toxic inks in the printing on these products.

How long do they take to compost?

Compostable bags will take approximately 90-180 days to decompose depending on the composting environment. Industrial composting is typically quicker than home composting for two main reasons:

1) temperatures reached inside a home composting bin is usually only a few centigrade degrees higher than the outside temperature, and this is true for short time periods (in industrial composting, the temperatures reach 50°C – with peaks of 60-70°C – for a number of months).

2) home composting bins are managed by everyday people and the composting conditions might not always be ideal (in contrast, industrial composting plants are managed by qualified personnel and kept under ideal working conditions).

How do I use my compostable resealable bags?

This new material is slightly different to the traditional plastic you may have used to carry your sandwiches in the past. It is designed to break down! To avoid disappointment, please avoid excessive moisture, avoid sharp objects, and store them in a cool dry place (avoid temperatures over 19 degrees celsius). Wash and wipe dry without full submersion and do not leave them to drip dry. Check the date of manufacture printed on the label and use within 12 months from this date.
