"Made from corn starch with a binding agent/resin added for flexibility.
the best bit … it can be composted at home, when you’ve finished using it, just put your bag in with your food scraps and garden waste, and before you know it, worms will be eating me for breakfast.
Better for the environment, better for our oceans, a better tomorrow"
