carrotbag | Abel & Cole
Hello dear reader, if you're here to find out more about our new eco packaging for carrots, you've come to the right place. Pull up a chair and we'll begin. You may even have a few questions. Through the magic of guessing, we've thought of (hopefully) most things you might ask. Here we go.
What's it all about?

Our carrots now come to you in a compostable biodegradable bio-polyester bag. This breathable bag keeps the carrots as fresh as possible by helping the carrots keep their moisture and stop condensation forming.

It's exciting stuff, and we're the first company in the UK to use this pioneering packaging.

Why did you start looking at new and extra packaging?

We had heard from our veg boxers (that's you) that carrots were going 'bendy' from time to time. So we've found a brilliant way to make sure they stay fresh and crisp.

Why are the bags so much better than other packaging?

- They're compostable and biodegradable.
- Made in a carbon neutral factory which is powered solely by wind and heat.
- Keeps veg fresher for longer and so reduces food waste.
What does compostable and biodegradable mean?

This means that the bags degrade and disintegrate under home compost conditions, complying with (official cap on for this bit) the European standard EN13432. As they breakdown they'll release water and oxygen only.

How is it best to compost these bags?

Pop them in your normal composting bin or the composting bin your council collects, with all your normal veg and fruit waste. The bags will compost faster both in home compost and industrial composting processes, making them ideal for collecting organic waste in kitchen and garden.

Wait a second, I don't compost. What do I do?

If you can't compost at home then please leave these bags out for your driver when you return your boxes and we'll collect them for you.
