Sustainability is integral to New Botanic Designs, so we strive to be sustainable in all that we do, from local production to compostable packaging.
3D-Printed Flower Sculptures
Our 3D-Printed Flower Sculptures are made in a bio-degradable bio-plastic, with dazzling details, eye-catching curves, and a silky shine. The material is called Polylactic Acid (PLA) and is made from organic materials like cornstarch and sugarcane. It will break down over a few years in commercial composting environments, but will last enduringly in your home. We recommend placing it in a position out of direct sunlight for maximum longevity.
We reduce our impact by printing our scarves on pure silk and using beautiful eco-friendly dyes to create a unique symphony of pink petals and playful pollens in each design.
We've partnered with Hero Packaging so that all of our scarf orders are sent in a gorgeous, compostable pink mailer. You can compost this at home, or put it in your general waste bin resting assured it will decompose naturally within several months (unlike the 70+ years taken for normal plastics) with no environmental impacts.
Our sculptures along with any mixed orders are sent in a 100% recycled cardboard box, which can be put in kerbside recycling bins or saved for later use.
