There’s no denying that traditionally formed plastic waste is terrible for our planet; it takes up a predicted 20% of all landfill space and will never break down. As more individuals, businesses and governments turn to sustainable alternatives, it’s only natural that environmental awareness extends to packaging, bags and the waste that rubbish produces in the form of plastic bags and bin liners.
Ecobagsnz is a New Zealand owned and operated company with the core mission of reducing plastic waste, supplying ethically produced reusable, compostable, biodegradable and degradable bags.
Ecobagsnz supply a diverse range of bags ready for branding including a paper retail line, calico cotton bags, jute bags, canvas bags, non-woven reusable bags and string bags.
Also specializing in bin liner solutions for home use, Ecobagsnz introduces Ecopack, available in compostable and degradable materials.

The Ecopack Compostable Range
Ecopack’s range of 100% Compostable, plastic free and biodegradable bags and bin liners are an eco-friendly alternative to traditional plastic bags. Ecopack Compostable liners are made from Corn Starch blended with other biodegradable materials. They are a more sustainable packaging choice and are specifically designed to be sustainable from start to finish, taking approximately 90 days to break down in a home or commercial composting environment.
Ecopack Compostable Kitchen/bin/wheelbin Liners (27 – 140L/pack of 5- 20) RRP $7.99 – 8.99
Ecopack Degradable Range
Ecopack degradable bags and bin liners are made from polyethylene. They are still a petroleum-based plastic bag but contain a degradable additive known as TDPA (Totally Degradable Plastic Additives) manufactured by a company called EPI. This helps the bags break down into smaller particles when exposed to sunlight, heat and oxygen. They can take between two – five years to break down, depending on conditions.
Ecopack Degradable Kitchen Tidy Liner (27L/36L, pack of 50/30) RRP &4.99-5.99
