OUR COMMITMENT TO EARTH

We think that sustainability is our planet’s future. At Bad Day Bandage, we recognise that we have a responsibility to the environment beyond legal and regulatory requirements. Therefore, we are committed to reducing our environmental impact. 

Where possible, we use materials which are either recyclable or compostable, and if possible those materials are sourced sustainably. We are constantly looking for eco-friendly alternatives for our products.

Our cellophane bags are made from Cellulose Biofilm. The bags are fully biodegradable which means that they break down to CO2 and water which can then be reused in the ecosystem to make new plants. This process will happen in a landfill or in a home-composting environment. 

In commercial composting the temperature will be higher and the process is much quicker.
In a home composter they will still biodegrade, it will just take a little longer. Origin UK.
