Part of looking after ourselves is looking after the world we live in. Inevitably if we look after mother nature she, in turn, will be able to look after and provide for us.

For HealthBank that means more than providing half a solution. That's why where it's in our control to do so, as a growing business we do everything we can to be as tree-hugging, world-loving, and eco-friendly as physically possible.

Our dispatch is one of the areas we can definitely control! We have had our team of John and Callum testing out heaps of options and we think we have found our winners.

These products are not halfway houses, they are either fully recyclable or compostable at home! No plastic coating and no harmful toxins left behind.
So without further ado, this is the what we are rolling with from here on in.

Courrier bags

Out courier bags are;

  • Made completely from plants
  • Home compostable
  • Commercially compostable

They are made from cornstarch PLA and PBAT and use non-toxic inks to provide you with a natural alternative to traditional plastic-based courier bags. (more on this in the FAQ section)

Our compostable range is certified to comply with the International Standards for home and commercial composting. EN13432 / AS4736 / AS5810 and are even printed with vegetable ink this means that once they are gone there is no toxins left in the soil either.

Pop starch

Made in New Zealand from cornstarch and expanded with steam like popcorn. 
Our popstarch is a sustainable renewable material to reduce environmental footprint, energy consumption and climate change emissions. 

Reusable and disposable in composts, gardens or anywhere outdoors or dissolve in water in your sink. Any remanence is none toxic to the soil, animals or to marine life. Our staff have even tried dissolving it in on their tongue, it's completely safe but maybe not our new favourite snack!

100% certified composable – ASTM D6400

100% certified biodegradable and nontoxic in the marine environments – ASTM D7081

Bubble wrap replacement

Our bubble wrap alternative is the combination of a patented die cut Kraft paper with a tissue interleaf paper. When dispensed it expands to a 3D honeycomb structure, providing the most innovative, and visually stunning packaging solution.

Using a dynamic design this crimped and sliced cardboard results in a strong protective layer around your items. We use this to rap up glass and some of our more fragile products.

And of course, it's completely recyclable.

Tape

Our tape is a kraft paper based tape and is fully recyclable just leave it on the box.

Boxes

Our boxes are 100% recyclable cardboard and any ink used to print on our boxes contain vegetable oils, fatty acid alklesters and have less than one percent mineral oil. This means less volatile organic compounds are emitted into the atmosphere.

To keep your local waste management team happy don’t forget to flatten before leaving on the side of the road.

Labels

Our labels are 100% recyclable and come from accredited well-managed forests and mills and are produced according to international sustainability guidelines. Any ink used to print on our own lables contain vegetable oils, fatty acid alklesters and have less than one percent mineral oil. This means less volatile organic compounds are emitted into the atmosphere.
