We have gone a great length to ensure our Business is sustainable in every aspect of our daily operations so we put together a list of the great brands that make Biocasa run!
MAILING SATCHEL & COURIERS - R3 PACK
R3 Pack is our trusted suppliers for mailing satchels and courier bags.
- R3pack's range of compostable bags are made with corn starch, PLA and PBAT. They use non toxic inks and the entire range is certified to comply with the International Standards for home and commercial composting. EN13432 / AS4736 / AS5810
- The paper courier bags are made from recycled and FSC certified paper and when you don’t need anymore, it can be easily home composted or recycled in a council recycling bin.
Cardboard and paper products are a great addition to the backyard compost as it helps with the carbon-nitrogen ratio.
The company is based in New Zealand and supports the Million Metres Streams Project which aims to restore at least one million metres of waterways in Aotearoa, New Zealand.
STICKERS - NO ISSUE
Our Biocasa stickers are supplied by No Issue and are made with:
- FSC Certified Paper
- Acid Free Paper
Our paper stickers are made from cellulose fiber where the active acid pulp is eliminated during processing. The pulp is also lignin- and sulfur-free, meaning that our ink won’t transfer from the stickers and the paper won’t leave behind any of these chemicals when decomposing.
- Soy-based Inks
Soy inks are an eco-friendly alternative to petroleum-based inks, made from soybeans, a renewable resource. While soy inks are slower to dry than many inks, the process produces more vibrant colors as well as having the added benefit of not leaving behind petroleum-based products when decomposing. Finally, soy inks have low levels of VOCs, reducing air pollution during the drying process.
The company was founded in New Zealand and is proud sponsor of the No Issue Eco-Packaging Alliance: For every order they receive, they’ll plant trees in areas of need.
It’s a great way to contribute to global reforestation and show off our eco-friendly packaging!
PACKING TAPE - WOODRUFF
Our branded paper packing tape is made by the amazing team at Woodruff from kraft paper and backed with a water-activated vegetable-based adhesive, making it naturally biodegradable, 100% recyclable, and a sustainable alternative to poly packing tape.
Woodruff is an Australian business based in the Morning Peninsula (Victoria) that manufactures locally and uses other Australian suppliers and products wherever is possible.
