1 / Compostable protection bags
Our packaging is minimal and designed to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill. Once ready for shipping, BARE garments are protected by a 100% compostable and biodegradable bag largely made from corn starch and other plant-based material. It may look like plastic, but it isn’t, we promise, and it breaks down quickly, leaving no toxic residue.
2 / Garment bags
Your order is enclosed in a reusable garment care bag composed of 55% hemp and 45% organic cotton. It has a drawstring bag so can easily be repurposed around the home.
3 / Biodegradable mailers
Your order is shipped to you in a reusable mailbag that’s also derived from corn starch, and again is fully compostable and biodegradable. You can even dispose of it in your green waste.
4 / Swing tags and labels
Our swing tags, bar codes and shipping cartons are made of FSC certified recycled material and our marketing material is 100% recycled card. Even the care labels on each BARE garment are made from organic cottonok like plastic, but it isn’t, we promise, and it breaks down quickly, leaving no toxic residue.
5 / How to dispose of your packaging
Once you’ve unwrapped your purchase save the corn starch bags. Reuse them around the house or save them to mail a gift to a friend. You can even add the biodegradable packaging to your home compost or worm farm (we like to cut them into strips to help the worms along) where they’ll break down completely, feeding the earth in the process. Your cloth garment care bag can be reused again and again whether you’re travelling or staying at home.
