Rachael Gurney's picture

Rachael is happiest on two wheels, she's been riding bikes for a good few years now after horses got too expensive! Partial to a race or two Rachael also likes getting out into the hills with a big bunch of mates. She's been writing for publications such as, Enduro Mountain Bike Magazine, Mountain Biking UK, Bike Radar, New Zealand Mountain Biker and was also the online editor for Spoke magazine in New Zealand too. For as long as she's been riding and is equally happy getting stuck into a kit review as she is creating stories, she also coaches mountain biking and when she's not busy with all the above she's serving coffee from a horse trailer!

Ey up,  Xenophon2

Christian here from Outdoor Provisions.  

Hope you are well and thanks for the comment.  These wrappers do breakdown in home composting in around 16 weeks, here is a video from the material manufacturer showing the process, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CvOtCpTL3YI&feature=youtu.be

What biscuits do you go for?  We are a fan of Dark Choc Tunnocks ourselves.

Cheers, Christian

I'm sure they'll do well, at least in the UK, maybe in the Netherlands.  Treacle and mint in two of those bars [shudder].  The type of wrapper shown is compostable but only in a specially outfitted processor at high temperatures and under exactly the right conditions.  Throw it on the compost heap at home and it'll still be there after 3 years.  I pack some regular biscuits and dried fruit, all of the punch at 10% of the price.
