Compost-A-Pak®’s product development and manufacturing processes are driven by our sustainability goals.

All products are made from a natural starch-based polymer derived from corn. They are completely plastic free!

We choose corn, as it’s an annually renewable resource, unlike trees which can take years to mature. Our corn is sourced from international GMO-free regions with high levels of natural rainfall to minimise irrigation, and we deliberately select third grade corn. This corn is essentially spoilt corn, and so is  unsuitable for human or animal consumption.

Blown film bags are then manufactured in a range of sizes and styles on purpose built equipment, which has been reengineered to minimise electricity consumption. Compost-A-Pak liners are then printed with soy-based, non-toxic printing inks.

Designed initially to collect organic kitchen waste, Compost-A-Pak® liners are proven to significantly improve waste diversion in large council programs, simply by making it so much more convenient to collect and transport organic waste. With over 50% of Australian household waste organic, reducing the amount sent to landfill can have a significantly positive environmental benefit, and contribute towards reducing the risk of landfill, including the omission of gasses linked to global warming.

Compost-A-Pak®’s products are Australian Certified compostable, for both home composting and industrial composting facilities. The liners breakdown with the organic waste through microbial activity, in the same way as their parent plants, creating a rich soil enhancing compost, perfect for the family vegetable patch, or, in commercial quantities, for organic farming.

Importantly, the nutrients taken in the harvesting of corn for manufacturing our bags, can then be returned to the Earth as compost for future crops.
