Are Patch Strips Zero Waste and Plastic Free?

Yes, the adhesive strip that is placed on your skin is 100% plastic free and zero waste.

PATCH Adhesive Strips are made from 100% certified bamboo fibre which is compostable. The gauze, which is the inside layer of the strip (that sits over your wound) is also compostable making it zero waste. The gauze is made from coconut oil and 100% organic bamboo fibre.

Aside from the environmental aspect, the magic of PATCH Strips comes from the ingredients used to create it’s adhesiveness. While most bandages are made from latex, which may cause allergies, PATCH Strips adhesive has been developed using natural ingredients that are suitable for kids. The strip is 100% zero waste: biodegradable and compostable.

The colouring on the PATCH Strips is also natural, and safe for composts.

What materials are the Patch Strips Packaged in?

The PATCH Strips come packaged in a cardboard box made from recycled materials. This box is 100% zero waste: biodegradable and compostable.

The PATCH Strip is wrapped in a biodegradable plastic outer layer. This layer has been added to keep the bandage sterile. The plastic outer layer is not certified compostable, but as it will biodegrade the product is 100% zero waste.

[November 2018] PATCH Strips have been approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) to replace their current plastic outer wrapper with paper, which will result in PATCH being a fully zero waste product.

Please note: An item is considered biodegradable it can be broken down by natural elements such as fungi or bacteria. The period of time in which it breaks down can be months or years depending on the item and the conditions it is exposed to. For example if we look at a standard size leaf that’s fallen from a tree it may take weeks or months for the leaf to biodegrade. However if when you compare an average leaf to that of an oak leaf, a hardy, durable natural item, it will take longer to biodegrade. It’s estimated it will take up to four years for an oak leaf to fully decompose. 

In order for plastic to be considered compostable, 90 per cent of it must biodegrade within 180 days of being in compost. The plastic needs to be made up of at least 50 per cent organic material and it cannot leave behind toxic residue after it has broken down.
