The how and why of pop starch

Tuesday, July 9, 2019

Our webstore now uses 100 percent compostable courier bags, plus the rest of our packaging is either recyclable. Our boxes are packed using pop starch, which dissolves when run under water – a fun activity for the kids. It is also safe for pets and animals, so if your cat picks it up to play with there’s no need to be alarmed!

What is pop starch?
