Courier Satchel

First impressions count…

So why not exceed your customer’s expectation by transporting your precious products in a plastic free, Australian Certified compostable Courier Satchel.

Our bright green satchels emblazed with their environmental credentials, are immediately recognisable as a sustainable alternative. Made of waste corn, they present a powerful and tangible message about the value your business places in sustainability, setting social media alight with images shared of your products arrival.

Compost-A-Pak® Courier Satchels are a medium size, similar to a conventional 3 kg satchel, although they can be wrapped to a smaller size. Made to Compost-A-Pak®’s unique minimum micron (um) standards to ensure high quality, you can be confident these satchels will transport your precious cargo, with minimum breakages and tears even in the hands of couriers. After use, these satchels can be composted by customers in the same way as food waste.


Compost-A-Pak® is proudly an Australian family owned business. Since 2007 we have been assisting leading business to reduce Landfill rates and limit plastic through the simple transition to a more sustainable option.

Our manufacturing processes are driven by our passion for sustainability.

All Compost-A-Pak® products are made from a natural starch-based polymer derived from corn. We choose corn, as it is an annually renewable crop, unlike trees, which can take years to grow. The actual crops are sourced from international GMO-free regions with high levels of rain, to minimise irrigation, and the corn selected is third grade corn.This is basically spoilt corn, a waste product traditionally left by farmers to rot, that is not suitable for human or animal consumption.

Using purpose built biodegradable resin extruders, a resin is extracted from the combination of corn starch, biodegradable ingredients and some propriety elements and from this blown film bags are formed in a range of designs and sizes. We are extremely proud that through re-engineering this purpose-built equipment, our liners are made with significantly less electricity consumption, compared to manufacturing on conventional extrusion equipment. The products are also printed in soy-based inks, with environmental messages and information promoting their difference as a sustainable alternative to plastics. They have a recommended shelf life of twelve months.

Most importantly Compost-A-Pak® Satchels are Certified compostable to the stricter Australian standards for both home composting (AS5810) and commercial composting (AS4736), as well as the relevant European, American and Japanese standards for commercial composting.

In the same way as vegetable scraps, the products in their entirety will break down into humus, water and carbon dioxide in a commercial composting facility in a matter of weeks. These certifications ensure you can be confident there will be no harmful residue as the liners break down. In fact, the bags are also safe for use in organic farms, food contact, animal feed and can also be also used in worm farms.
