Zero Carbon

In today's fast-paced world, businesses are constantly looking for ways to attract and retain customers. One way to do this is by offering recurring purchase discounts, a strategy that rewards customers for their loyalty by giving them discounts on future purchases. We hope we can build a strong and long-lasting relationship with them. Compostal is committed to going green and we will make every effort to reduce our carbon footprint until it reaches zero.

In the realm of sustainability, recurring purchase discounts can play a significant role in promoting eco-friendly practices. By incentivising customers to make repeat purchases, companies can encourage them to reduce their carbon footprint and waste by using fewer resources, such as packaging materials.

The sustainability of food has been on the attention of scientists in recent years and for good reason. Soil depletion is a problem in many industrial farming regions.  To make matters worse, climate change is having an effect.  Areas with drought deplete the soil further.

Single-use plastic has become an integral part of our daily lives, from the water bottles we drink from to the plastic bags we carry our groceries in. However, the negative impacts of single-use plastic on our environment and wildlife are becoming increasingly apparent and undeniable.

One of the most important steps in improving soil and food is to focus on regenerative agriculture. This approach involves using techniques such as cover cropping, crop rotation, and no-till farming to build up the health of the soil and increase its ability to hold water and nutrients. By improving the structure of the soil, regenerative agriculture can help to increase crop yields and improve the overall quality of the food that is grown.

Here at Compostal, we are always looking at how we can enhance our products and make them, even more eco-friendly.  We believe seaweed will be the next major development in mass-produced bags for postage, and single-use food packaging for food items such as fruits, vegetables, and meats.

Seaweed, also known as macroalgae, is a sustainable alternative to plastic. It is a renewable resource that can be harvested from the ocean and processed into a variety of products including eco-compostable bags! We believe eventually we will phase out our corn starch-made bags and replace them with bags made from seaweed.   Seaweed can be grown naturally in the environment so won't require land use or land-based fertiliser to grow. It's a win-win all around.  The manufacturing process can also be done net-zero with the use of renewables such as solar or green hydrogen.
