Who we are

Concerned about the impact single use plastics are having upon the environment, we decided to offer a range of cost effective high quality, alternative products.

Catering products made from plants not plastic

As more of us become aware of the problems caused by plastic pollution in the environment, it’s increasingly important to find alternatives to single use disposable plastics. It is our aim to make these alternatives as affordable and convenient as possible. Our products are made from plants not plastic, whilst offering durability and practicality at a comparable price. 

All of our products are manufactured from plant based materials and are either fully compostable or biodegradable. Using products such as these is a great way to do your bit by ‘closing the loop’. Compostable and biodegradable products use less energy in their manufacture and create fewer greenhouse gases, before being returned to the soil through the composting process. This is a win win for the environment in mitigating climate change and an important objective for achieving net zero. 

How our products should be recycled

Compostable products are suitable for industrial composting by your local council with other composting waste where the process takes around 90 days. Compostable items can also be disposed of in your garden compost bin where the process will take longer. Biodegradable items must be composted in a special industrial facility, however not all councils currently offer this, so please check the situation where you live first.
