  • Plastic bags of birdseed. Most brand's packaging isn’t even recyclable.

     

    You may be thinking - What material exactly is the packaging of this particular birdseed made from then? Garden Crowd says: ‘Our bags are plastic-free, biodegradable to EU standards EN 13432, and made of FSC kraft pulped paper (recycled), cellulose and non-GMO corn starch.’

     

    These bird food mixtures come in home-compostable packaging, they have been tested and are in the process of gaining the ‘Plastic-Free Mark’ accreditation. It takes approximately 10 weeks for the bags to break down ….and it won’t harm the composition of your compost (for all you compost enthusiasts who use carefully measured recipes, I know you are out there!) For those without a home composting system, the bags can be taken to a composting centre, or, if that isn’t an option, ...reused until they disintegrate!

     

    According to Garden Crowd: ‘Birds can lose up to 20% of their own body weight in one night during the cold weather so it is important for them to be able to make a trip to your feeder knowing they will get the right food. If the food that is out on the feeder doesn’t support them with the right nutrition it could mean wasted trips, multiple trips and ultimately using up more of that important energy and body weight.’
