At FiveFudge we are conscious of needing to do our bit to try and hand over the planet to our kids and grandkids in good enough shape for them to live. We are proud to be able to say that all our packaging (except the stickers) is compostable. All you have to do is remove any stickers then put the clear natureflex bag, Black Econic resealable pack, FiveFudge giftbox (reuse/recycle first), Cardboard courier bag, black courier bag and eco wrap in your home compost bin and let nature take care of the rest.
When selling FiveFudge at the markets we use compostable brown bags and eftpos receipts are sent to you via text or email. Our FiveFudge banner which we use at markets and promotional events is made of high quality recycled material. We are working on finding a robust compostable sticker to add to our collection to become 100% compostable.
Don't have a compost bin? Maybe you can give it to one of your composting friends or make a decent pile of compostable material then put a message on social media asking for someone to come collect it or start a compost bin or send the packaging back to us and we'll put it in our bin.
Yeah... We know all of this is only a small step in the right direction but it's better than no effort at all, right? #WeLoveTheEarthItIsOurHome
Econic Resealable Packs | You can put your used Econic bags in your own home compost or worm farm, containing heat, water, oxygen, soil and micro-organisms. You can even bury Econic in your garden, but it will break down at a slower rate than it would in a compost environment containing heat, water, oxygen, soil and micro-organisms.
Paper Courier Bag | Our paper courier bags (from r3pack) are a natural and stunning plastic free alternative. These paper courier bags are made from recycled and FSC certified paper to a luxurious thickness that will protect your orders. Our paper courier bags are different from standard mailers because we've got a few folded lines that when you push on the sides it becomes a "bag". And when you've finished with the bag, it can be reused, easily home composted or recycled in a council recycling bin.
Courier Bag | Our r3pack bags are made with corn starch, PLA and PBAT. We use non toxic inks to provide you with a natural alternative to traditional plastic based courier bags. Our compostable range is certified to comply with the International Standards for home and commercial composting. EN13432 / AS4736 / AS5810
Clear NatureFlex Bag | Clear home compostable bag, robust and versatile. Made from NatureFlex, a clear greaseproof film made from wood pulp. Made from plants, not plastic. Commercially compostable where accepted.
Eco Wrapping | A beautiful eco friendly solution to the traditional plastic bubble protection. Again, from r3pack, The Geami WrapPak is the combination of a patented die cut Kraft paper with a tissue interleaf paper. When dispensed it expands to a 3D honeycomb structure.
