Our Packaging

Did you know, our packaging bags are derived from renewable wood pulp. Cellulose is a substance from a plants cell wall, this can be extracted from renewable plant material to produce the cellulose film. Once used, cellulose film (also known as Cellophane) will biodegrade producing ecotoxicity free biomass (compost), CO2 and H2O. Then these 2 compounds can be combined with sunlight and converted into energy by plants in a process called photosynthesis, resulting in more tree growth which can then be used to produce more bags. These trees grow by photosynthesis, absorbing CO2 from the air, minerals and water from the soil and the energy from the sun; Once used these bags can be composted back into CO2, water and biomass; Compost, CO2 and water are then used by plants, and so the cycle continues. All our bags are made in the UK from NatureFlex™ film that has been accredited compostable for both Industrial and Home Composting.

At Happy Cow we want to be as eco-friendly as possible, that’s why we only use 100% recyclable labels. Along with being sustainably sourced and delivered to you in fully recyclable packing, reducing our environmental impact is one of the things that drives what we do and how we do it. They're also printed using fully recycled stock. We also encourage our customer to reuse our unique black and white string, to help spread our message.
