Earthtwine: Bio-degradable, Compostable, Made in NZ

We support growers to move away from a ‘buy > use> dispose’ linear approach and transition towards a circular approach by eliminating the impact of plastic in the environment.

Our products are made from plant-based polymers and bio­materials and have been developed with local growers to ensure that each product meets the standards and expectations of the industry.

EarthTwine will decompose fully in a composting environment leaving no harmful residues in the process. It breaks down into water, CO2 and biomass.
