Trialling Thistle Bio-Plastic Packaging for our Leafy Greens

This week we have packed all our pak choi in a new kind of packaging bag made from the Thistle plant, which is biodegradable and home-compostable. This means it can be disposed of in your normal landfill waste or food waste bin and it will degrade in 12-14 days in industrial sites. If you compost at home you can also dispose of it this way and the bags will take approximately 8-12 weeks to degrade.
If you are a VegBox customer of our let us know what you think by emailing vegbox@suttoncommunityfarm.org.uk.
