Your veg share comes in a reusable hessian bag. Wherever possible we place produce loose in the bag. For fresh leaf items we do you polythene bag as these would not keep well if packed loose or in paper. Where possible these bags are biodegradable. This does not mean that you can put them into your compost heap but they will fully biodegrade if they end up in the environment. They are made of plastic but will ultimately degrade into carbon dioxide, water biomass and minerals. We are looking into alternatives.
