Bio-degradable Eco-Nest, an exciting new bedding material that is already producing some exciting results
This super absorbent bedding is like no other, its unique design locks together to create a soft, aerated comfortable bedding whilst being virtually dust free for the ultimate in reparatory health.
Perfect for all types of animals form poultry, reptiles and all types of herbivores, and as it is made from recycled, unused virgin cardboard, its not only good for animals but the environment too.
This new bedding is growing fast in popularity with some very satisfied customers.
We have found in our field trials that it can take between 1 and 2 months (when the pack was left in a field) for it to start cracking and splitting. We are taking revolutionary steps and are learning about the material all the time but the best test will always be the market itself. So we are too pleased to hear about any thoughts or issues so that we can continue to improve.
In cool dry conditions yes it will last, I have a bag from Feb 2018 and a test piece from September 2017 that are still in perfect condition.
In short no, it needs warmth and humid conditions over a period of time to start breaking down. Although pure starch is soluble, once processed the wrap material is not.
It has similar strength characteristics as LDPE films at similar gauges.
As with our plastic bags we would recommend they are stored in a cool dry place.
No contaminants will be left behind. The material will be completely converted into CO2, water and biomass. (At least 90% of the Carbon will be converted into CO2.) Even the inks are water based and will leave no contaminants.

No. That would be silly
The best we can do as manufacturers and retailers is to produce these products and educate our customers into making the right choices.
