How to use our satchels

 

Reuse

The specially designed DOUBLE GLUE STRIPS on the satchels make reusing them easy. Just make sure to use the second glue strip to enclose the satchel. 

 

Composting 

It is crucial to remove any plastics tapes or labels before placing the satchels in the compost bin or industrial composting collection (please refer to your local council guideline). It would take approximately 90-120 days for the satchels to be fully composted in the composting system, leaving no toxic residue to the environment. Scatter the mature compost around your garden, and your plants will thank you for it.  

On the contrary, satchels that end up in the landfill take about two years to decompose. This disposal method is not recommended because any compostable material that ends up in the landfill can emit greenhouse gases that lead to climate change. 

 

Composting Basics

Making your compost is a great way to recycle our food and garden waste into something useful for our garden plants. Reducing our waste, which would normally end up in landfill, can also reduce the amount of harmful greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere. We have the power to make the switch by composting our organic watse and save our precious planet. 

Not sure how to make your compost? Here are a few handy tips for you to get composting! 

To start the process of composting, place equal parts of organic brown /dry materials like cardboard, newspaper, hay, or dry leaves along with organic green waste (e.g., grass clippings or plant-based kitchen scrap but not bread) in the compost bin. Successful composting requires a little effort by watering it occasionally, regular aeration, and let nature do its magic, turning all the waste materials into useful compost. It is then ready to be put BACK TO EARTH.
