Pop starch

Pop starch packaging

We've recently changed our packaging to include pop starch biodegradable chips; protecting your products and helping the environment.

Made from expanded starch, Pop Starch is 100% compostable and biodegradable with no disposal costs, easier handling due to being non-static and having many environmental benefits. Pop starch is a compostable and biodegradable expanded loose fill manufactured from starch, protecting products and the Planet.

Environmental and sustainability advantages:

  • It is made in New Zealand and manufactured from sustainable renewable materials.
  • Will biodegrade when exposed to any environment containing bacteria and moisture. This can be aerobic or anaerobic, above or below ground.
  • Biodegradable time is less than cellulose (plant materials).
  • Almost completely dissolves in water in hours, what is left s biodegrades.
  • Can be composted with organic waste including food waste to produce fertile humus in a few weeks.
  • Can be disposed of on the lawn or garden, or even down the toilet.
  • Reusable, can be recycled through the same waste stream as cardboard and paper.
