SUGARCANE FIBRE (BAGASSE)1/6

Compostable sugarcane fibre is a great example of upcycling. It is made with surplus natural material from sugar production: sugar cane stems.

  • Readily biodegrades under controlled composting conditions • Once composted it turns to soil in just a few weeks
  • Suitable for industrial composting
  • May be sorted with food waste depending on local regulations • Available certification: EN13432

After use: you can sort with waste for industrial composting or cardboard for recycling. Local waste regulations need to be followed. Check with your local waste handlers.

CARDBOARD/PAPER2/6

Most of our Cardboard/Paper products are made from FSCTM-certified fibre. They are often accepted for either composting, or recycling as paper pulp if not contaminated by food.

Local waste regulations need to be followed. Check with your local waste handlers.

WOOD/BAMBOO3/6

A renewable resource. We use FSC-certified Birchwood and Bamboo for our products. These materials are a natural choice for products such as cutlery, where strength and durability is important.

Did you know, Bamboo absorbs 5 times the amount of CO2 and produces 35% more oxygen than other plants in the same space!

Local waste regulations need to be followed. Check with your local waste handlers.

RECYCLED PET (RPET)4/6

RPET is made from recycled plastic bottles – which otherwise could end up in landfill sites or burnt as fuel.

  • Typically, RPET has a 50% lower carbon footprint than virgin plastic
  • BioPak RPET products contain up to 100% recycled PET
  • The RPET we use is regularly tested to ensure it meets food safety rules
  • Supply chain is fully documented
  • After use, RPET products can be recycled as standard plastic

Local waste regulations need to be followed. Check with your local waste handlers.

PLA/CPLA5/6

Compostable plant-based bioplastic, PLA and CPLA are made from otherwise surplus renewable material: fermentable corn starch.

  • Bioplastics like PLA and CPLA offer society a way to reduce dependence on fossil fuels
  • CPLA is chemically identical to PLA. The difference is that it is crystalized, which makes it stronger and able to withstand higher temperatures
  • Reflecting this, CPLA can withstand temperatures up to +70oC and PLA up to +50oC
  • After use, PLA and CPLA products can be sorted with food waste for industrial composting, depending on local regulations, or recycled as bioplastic

Local waste regulations need to be followed. Check with your local waste handlers.

GRASS PAPER6/6

Grass paper is recyclable and extremely resource-efficient. Grass is naturally abundant, available globally and harvested locally, and does not compete with resources used for animal feed.

  • Recyclable, compostable, approved for skin tolerance
  • Energy efficient to produce: it only requires 2 litres of water to produce one ton of grass fibre raw material
  • Production of grass paper does not require chemical treatment
  • After use, grass paper can be sorted with paper for recycling

Local waste regulations need to be followed. Check with your local waste handlers.
