Corn again

Yep, that’s right.

These babies look like plastic and feel a little like plastic, but they’re made from 100% biodegradable and compostable materials.

Specifically, they are made from corn starch, PLA (made from corn), and PBAT (Polybutyrate Adipate Terephthalate).

Just take the extra bits off and they will decay away, nourishing future generations of flora.

 

Food for worms

At the end of its journey—once your customer has received their wares—the satchel can simply be stripped of its label and tossed in with the food scraps.

From there, it will start breaking down. Within 90 days, in the usual course of home composting, your satchel is as good as dirt (rich nutrient-dense dirt).

These clever satchels have passed stringent certified home compostable requirements, which includes a worm toxicity test, so they’re even worm farm friendly.

 

Try them on for size

Perfect for 500g parcels around 2L size. Each one measures 245mm X 335mm when folded over and sealed.

Keep them like red wine

Because they’re made from plants not plastic, our Sendle satchels do have a shelf life of about 9 months in normal storage conditions. If you want them to age well please keep them in a cool, dark place—like a filing cabinet, office drawer, or cupboard.
