Compost-A-Pak bags are predominantly made of third grade corn.
Corn is ideal as it’s an annually renewable crop, which unlike trees, can be grown and harvested in a single season. The corn is deliberately sourced from international GMO-free regions with high levels of rain, to minimise any irrigation.
When corn is harvested, it is graded for sale. Third grade corn is basically spoilt corn, graded as unsuitable for both human and animal consumption and so, it’s often left by farmers to rot. It’s the perfect base material for our bags.
