SupplyCompass introduces compostable packaging range

Sustainable sourcing platform, SupplyCompass, has introduced a compostable packaging range for fashion brands which is made from a corn-based biopolymer and is as durable as plastic. Following demands from brands and consumers, the company has introduced the compostable packaging range via its product builder tool: SupplyCompass Essentials.

One of the only companies to offer this fully customisable service on compostable polybags, the launch sees SupplyCompass tackling single-use plastic in the garment supply chain, head-on. Based in London and Mumbai, SupplyCompass is a design-to-delivery sourcing platform for fashion and interiors brands worldwide.

SupplyCompass’s packaging range includes eco mailers (postal packaging for ecommerce brands) and polybags (supply chain packaging) that are 100 per cent compostable, making them a perfect plastic-free packaging choice. The bags are made from a corn-based biopolymer whilst being durable and waterproof, ensuring items are kept securely. Once used, the bags can be put into a home compost where they will break down in six months.

Flora Davidson, SupplyCompass co-founder, says: “As a business we see millions of single-use polybags being discarded on a regular basis, so we set out to tackle this. Polybags are the plastic bags used in the distribution and delivery end of the supply chain to protect products. They’re lightweight, effective and cheap. But, unfortunately, their most common iteration is 100 per cent plastic and difficult to recycle.”

Davidson continues: “According to the Ellen Macarthur Foundation’s recent report The New Plastics Economy, plastic packaging is estimated at 26 per cent of the total volume of plastics created a year. 72 per cent of this plastic packaging is never incorporated back into the economy: 40 per cent is landfilled and 32 per cent leaks out of the collection system altogether. As one of the only businesses to offer customisable, compostable polybags, we’re looking forward to helping instigate change within the garment supply chain.”

With a shelf life of 12 months, the eco mailer and polybags also come in various sizes and are customisable, so brands can use their own logo or words to make them their own.
