I bet you never thought anything of a wasted potato other than the fact it was a wasted potato. Turns out they're quite a bit more useful than you think - potato starch is extracted from them and manufactured into a 100% compostable material, in this case, in the form of a mailing bag. Pretty handy for shipping your orders in, and easy for you to get rid of as they break down on your compost heap within 12 weeks. Who knew?
It's not just the mailing bags that are plastic-free. Nah-ah. We're trying everything we can to make a difference in bettering our planet. Our designs are printed using vegetable based, vegan-friendly inks on FSC certified papers.
All of our nursery prints are packaged flat in a 100% compostable and biodegradable clear bag made from renewable corn starch which breaks down into CO2 and H2O, enabling new plants to grow. They're then packaged in a recyclable kraft envelope and finished off with our 'don't bend me please' stamp, made from ethically-sourced, sustainable trees.
The alphabet cards are packaged in a 100% cotton bag (pictured above so you can see what a cotton bag looks like) before being wrapped in Geami wrap, not just because it sounds fancy, but because this die-cut kraft paper means zero plastic waste.
Because it's not a nice thought that, if things carry on as they are, by 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish. Yuk.
