Message from the Maker:
I have been working at with the company for 20 years. I have found my speciality in bag cutting. When I had a serious illness, the company helped me and my colleagues donated money for the treatment of the illness.
After I recovered, the company welcomed me to work again. I’m very grateful for good management and colleagues. My job at the factory provides me with meaningful, happy and satisfying work.
I have one son and one daughter, who are living in Sichuan now. Thanks for reading my little story and I hope you love the compostable bags as much as I do.
Our factory is based in Dongguan city of the Guangdong province in China. Where the minimum wage is 1,720 RMB per month.
We pay our workers, on a low-end average of around 11 RMB a hour. Which ends up being above the minimum wage at 1,800 RMB per month. The workers work 8 hours a day, 5 days a week. They are off on all holidays.
The factory does not use any single-use plastic in the production process of the compostable bags. But there is water based ink used when printing the film. The waste ink water goes to processing and we recycle and reuse whatever ink we can recover. Then if there is no more ink we can recover, the waste water gets treated and then reused in the next round of printing. A fully closed loop system.
As these bags are 100% compostable, please ensure you store them in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight as this can compromise the integrity of the bag.
Please use the bags within a year.
Home Composting: Under certain conditions, it can be ok to put dog poo in your home compost. If you do, the compost should not be used for any edible plant/ vegetable areas as bacteria from the poo is not good for humans. You may want to have a separate compost bin/ area for your dog poo and then only use that compost for other areas of the garden that are away from any edible plants.
If your dog is ill or has worms please do not put dog poo in the home compost bin.
Zero Waste Club was founded in the UK by two students who wanted to make Plastic Free living easy and cheap as possible. They now provide a range of plastic free essentials.
