As an online retailer, we're aware of the large amount of plastic waste that gets generated. Layers and layers of bubblewrap, plastic satchels...we've seen it all! The complete mess when supplier shipments arrive in our office speaks volumes of the plastic waste that we've seen - I can bury myself in the sea of bubblewrap and be pretty sure if someone punched me, I'll be safe 😂
We've made a pledge to help reduce plastic waste.
Over the last few months, we've been carefully researching into alternatives into our postal satchels and bubblewrap to ensure that we aren't harming the environment.
Our "Dirt" Bags
These "Dirt Bags" are:
- Bio-based ie. partly made from PLANTS
- Biodegradable with no toxic residues (or micro-plastics!)
- And COMPOSTABLE at HOME!
Geami WrapPak/Greenwrap is a disposable and recycleable combination of die cut kraft paper and tissue interleaf that is used to cushion and protect fragile items during shipment.
The papers used to create WrapPak are either Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) certified or made using recycled content. WrapPak is biodegradable and 100% recyclable through your community’s recycling program.
