Do you use an organic waste collection service?

There are companies around Australia that will come to your home/cafe/bar/school etc for a small fee to pick up your organic waste; this includes food scraps, organic packaging and our PLA eco-straws. These companies turn your organic waste into a nutrient rich compost which can be used to grow more resources. Like corn for example, which aside from being suitable for harvesting as a food, produces cornstarch - which our PLA eco-straws are derived from! 🌽 We call this a circular economy, because it turns items made from nature back into nature. This is one of the most sustainable waste...

They say that the world is an open book and unless you’ve travelled (outside your own country I guess?) that you’ve only read one page.This statement was what popped into my head as I recently drove alongside a fresh water river in Cairo, Egypt on our way to experience some of the most iconic ancient history in the world. I’m not saying that I haven’t travelled before that, I have and I’ve seen lots of different cultures and countries, but there is nothing to prepare you for the waste that lines the streets and river beds of Cairo.Egypt is home...

The best way to dispose of our eco-straws and cutlery!

COMPOSTING Composting is the fastest and most sustainable disposal method for our plant-based, organic PLA products. Composting is a natural process that recycles organic matter/waste such as food, plant-based straws and cutlery into a nutrient rich compost, also known as 'black gold' as it is an amazing fertiliser for your soil. This is what we call 'Nature's Circular Economy', a concept that goes beyond recycling and is the process of safely returning resources back into nature (compost), to be reused to grow corn to make PLA products for example. All of #IMNOTPLASTICCOs products are commercially compostable, certified to European bioplastics...
