I’ll stick around … but only as long as I’m needed! I’m a roll of Compost-friendly labels suitable for printing on a Direct Thermal label printer, so now the whole package can be compostable …
I work a dream on the following thermal printers;
Zebra (D and T models)
Barcode size works well on a Postek printer
DYMO LabelWriter 4XL and 5XL printers
(DYMO-compatible labels only)
Please check your printer’s size requirements carefully before ordering. All label rolls have a 40mm diameter core, except Dymo which have a 25mm core.
100 x 150mm | Australia Post eParcel | StarTrack | TNT | Fastway | Couriers Please | Sendle
102 x 210mm | DHL
69 x 25mm | Barcode labels
Did you know most Courier labels are made of acrylic and won't biodegrade? Not me! I'm Certified industrially compostable and a s well as being compostable, my adhesive is also carefully formulated to include a high percentage of renewable materials.
The Release liner is made of Glassine + silicone coated high grade paper. Please contact us and we can direct you to a recycling scheme for these.
Note: Our DYMO-compatible labels are not endorsed or approved by DYMO but have been developed and tested by us to work in DYMO LabelWriter 4XL and 5XL printers
Our comPOST Range is made from totally biodegradable and compostable materials; corn starch, PLA (synthesised from corn) and PBAT (Polybutyrate Adipate Terephthalate). PLA (Polylactide) is a bio-based, biodegradable material made from renewable plant material (starches such as corn husks, rice straw and wheat straw).
While the materials used to form our comPOST Range are biodegradable and compostable, they are not however 100% renewable as the PBAT component is derived from petroleum-based materials. We are limited at the moment by the availability of suitable, sustainable raw materials that deliver the barrier and performance properties we need but are always testing resins made from an even greater amount of plant-based material – exciting times! This combination of materials is non-toxic and contains no Phthalate or Bisphenol A (BPA). The inputs to our products are certified free of GMO material
CLOSE TO ZERO WASTE . SOME RENEWABLE ENERGY
We have worked super-hard with our production facilities to ensure that our comPOST Packs, comPOSTubble Bags and comPOLY Bags are made in a zero waste process. For our comPOSTlabels and comPOSTape, it's a bit trickier, but we're getting closer all the time.
CERTIFIED HOME &/OR INDUSTRIALLY COMPOSTABLE
Products in this range are fully biodegradable and will be broken down naturally by microbes in a composting environment. They will NOT create micro plastics.
Products carrying a Home Compostable certification will break down within 180 days in a home compost. If you don't have a home compost, you might want to think about starting one, it's a great way to keep food scraps out of landfill and return nutrients to the soil. Composting not your bag? We also have a network of Collection points where you can drop off your used packaging instead.
Products carrying the Seedling Compostable logo require the more intense conditions of a Commercial composting facility to break down.
Our compostable packaging journey began when we developed our now infamous, black, ‘Real Dirt Bags’ (biodegradable courier satchels) –a truly re-evolutionary product. This range has since expanded to include labels, tape, poly bags and more!
