Product

Great Wrap is made from potato waste and a mix of other compostable biopolymers - and it’s certified home compostable. Potato waste exists in abundance due to our love of potato chips. There are a lot of skins and potatoes that don't make the cut for chips, we are using these waste materials to produce a bioplastic and forming that into Great Wrap.

Some other common bioplastics require intensive agriculture or require industrial composting conditions. We want to offer products that solve problems, not create them. That’s why we did the research to develop our patent-protected formula.

We are certified Compostable by the Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI) Certification #10529304. That means Great Wrap has undergone a stringent test regime carried out by recognized independent accredited laboratories to meet compostability standards, then validated by an independent accreditation body.

Great Wrap is made in Australia in our Melbourne-based factories. We have two locations, one where we coordinate packaging, distribution and run our material trials. The other is our mega factory where we manufacture our home compostable stretch wrap. We currently have a team of more than 30 who work hard to manufacture this wrap locally in Australia. 

Great Wrap is microwave safe at low heat for short periods of time. Our wrap will melt at medium or high heat, so keep your eye on it.

It sure is! Our wrap only begins to break down when it’s in a compost environment - it needs the action from microbes and moisture for the composting process to start.

Absolutely, they love it! Our wrap breaks down by microbial action in the same way as food scraps do, leaving no toxic residues, and so it is safe for all compost types.

No, you cannot. Please leave that to the microbes in your compost. Although Great Wrap is made from food waste it is still a form of compostable plastic, it’s not designed to be ingested. The food waste composition is changed through the polymerisation process to perform like plastic so it acts much the same within human and animal digestive systems.

Great Mate

Around 373 million plastic water bottles end up as waste each year in Australia and of all the plastic bottles that are placed into recycling, only 36% of them are actually recycled.

The rest end up in landfills, spill into waterways and leak harmful chemicals into our environment as they decompose, which causes a number of environmental and health issues.

The Great Mate helps solve this problem by looking at other ways to use ocean-bound plastic and give it a more meaningful life rather than ending up in a landfill.

The Great Mate was designed and manufactured in Melbourne, Australia. We chose to manufacture in Australia so we could control all aspects of the design process to ensure the best quality.

When it is time to refill your Great Mate, you can buy Nudie Rolls on our website. You can order them in a pack or you can set yourself up for a Great Mate subscription, so you never run out again.

Composting and End of Life Cycle

Our cling wrap is certified home compostable meaning it will break down in your home compost in under 180 days!

Once you’ve finished your roll of Great Wrap, you can place the box and the inner roll into the paper recycling or compost bin.

We’d love to launch wholesale and business products next! If you’re interested please reach out to our Head of Business Development Jaclyn for more information jaclyn@greatwrap.co

If Great Wrap ends up in a landfill it will break down eventually, but it’ll take around 1 - 3 years. If Great Wrap sits on your shelf, it’ll last about 2 years. We obviously recommend composting our wrap as it is the best result for our environment and for repurposing (eg as nutrient soil).

Great Wrap breaks down the same way as food scraps, into food and energy for the microbes in your compost. It goes perfectly with your organic waste to be composted into rich, nutrient soil ready to be repurposed.
