Our Tea Towels, Bags and Aprons are environmentally friendly as they reduce the waste produced by plastic bags, paper towels and plastic aprons. We use premium quality cotton and cotton drill so that our products will stand the test of time and use. All of our items are designed and printed in Australia.
All our tea towels are manufactured specifically for us from ethically grown 100% organic cotton in a GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified factory we have been working with for many years. As we are unable to find an Australian fabric mill, we source our fabrics from an ethical and sustainable supplier overseas.
We also use 100% environmentally friendly inks – 100% solvent, PVC and phthalate free with approval from the Soil Association of the UK, having successfully met the requirements of the Global Organic Textiles Standards (GOTS) for non-organic chemical inputs for use in organic textile processing.
Expressions then provides compostable order bags to easily pack your precious keepsakes so they get home safely. Compost-a-pak bags are Australian made bags made of corn starch and plastic free, Australian certified compostable for both home and council organics programs.
Expressions also use Hero Packs to send out all our free kits. HEROPACK is certified Home-Compostable. HEROPACK looks and feels like plastic, but it's not. Not even close. It is a 100% home-compostable shipping mailer and is made from 70-80% PBAT (a co-polymer that is completely compostable) and 20-30% PLA (which is a fancy way of saying cornstarch). In a commercial compostable environment, it will break-down within 90 days. At home, it may take up to 120 days.
Expressions is always on the look out on how we can be continue to be an Environmentally friendly organisation.
