We're Decent Packaging.. We've sprung from the antipodes of New Zealand, where over the past five years, just like our products we've worked from the ground up.

We want to provide the UK with sustainable plant-based solutions and alternatives to petrochemical-based packaging so we made the decision to open shop here. Same ethos, same sustainable ethical packaging made from plants.
