Compostable Jewelry Packaging – reducing our need for plastic bit by bit — Sharon Z Jewelry

So when I observed a new packaging organization that provided small, compostable baggies and other shipping and delivery materials, I was intrigued. 

Baggies are a requirement – they retailer your finished stock without scratching, they safeguard silver items from tarnishing and they make it simple to see your stock at a glance, or preserve labels. Up right up until now, most of our alternatives have been limited – plastic, a so-called biodegradable plastic* or glassine.

Plastic baggies have 1 advantage in that they can be reused an infinite range of periods, but nonetheless – the earth does not have to have far more plastic. Compostable luggage will not be as possible to previous prolonged, but they will decompose in house compost techniques. 

In the interest of not letting the ideal be the enemy of the excellent, I resolved to purchase some compostable luggage from betterpackaging.com – they are, to the finest of my know-how, the only compostable baggies that appear in compact more than enough dimensions to be practical to jewellery makers (if you know of other resources, remember to fall them in the comments). According to their description, these are compostable in your very own residence composter. I only have municipal compost collection, but I am likely to continue on to use and reuse till they tumble apart.
