Our Sugarcane fibre products are made from bagasse, the pulp material remaining after the extraction of the sugar-bearing juice from sugarcane. This fibre by-product can be turned into products normally made from plastic or paper and avoids the pollution from the normal burning of sugarcane pulp after juice extraction. Sugarcane is a readily renewable resource
These products have no plastic or wax coating and are a far superior alternative to polystyrene, plastic and paper products.
The sugarcane fibre products are fully compostable. These products will usually compost within 30 days in a commercial composting facility and 90 days in a home composting system.
Our preference is to carry unbleached products (a natural light brown colour) where possible and we are moving towards this as more product lines become available. However, some product lines are only available bleached (white).
