The Full Package Bin
Our Full Package bins are designed to encourage customers to dispose of packaging and food waste in the correct bin. We've partnered with The First Mile in London to roll out a network of bins across London collecting both food waste and compostable packaging. We're working to partner with more waste management companies around the country in 2020. Compostable packaging can easily be collected and composted by The First Mile throughout London. Plastic Recycling is a broken linear economy. For a long time, our economy has been ‘linear’. This means that raw materials are used to make a product, and after its use, any waste (e.g. packaging) is disposed of in landfill or incinerated. Compostable packaging waste can integrate into the organic waste system producing nutrient-rich fertiliser from the composting process. We’ve partnered with First Mile to collect and compost everything from decent cups, cutlery to decent takeaway lunch boxes. The packaging is put into an autoclave which is similar to a very high-temperature pressure cooker. This process expedites the breaking down of the compostable packaging materials, and then these materials go through the standard Anaerobic Digestion process (usually used for food), which produces fertiliser, and the methane produced during the decomposition process is burned to produce green energy.
Composting,the ultimate recycling
We can build anything
The products of compost: Carbon, Hydrogen and Oxygen make up 99% of all organic molecules - the building blocks of all life. Will your salad container be repurposed into cos lettuce? Forget the rigidity of classic recycling, composting is part of the infinite, circular, cycle of natural life.
Decomposes within 12 weeks
All of our products are commercially compostable. This is because in commercial facilities we can guarantee at least 60 degree heat and therefore swift decomposition within 12 weeks.
Plastic recycling is broken
The most viable solution for single-use disposable packaging is a full cycle, organic recycling solution. Plant-based packaging waste can integrate into the organic waste system and be utilised as compost for the next generation of plants.
pieces of plastic taken out of circulation
Collectively our customers have reduced the amount of plastic in circulation through using plant-based alternatives.
