We Love It Because: Onya’s commitment to sustainability extends to their packaging which is made from post-consumer recycled material and printed with water based inks so it is suitable for both recycling or composting.
In 2004, the founder Jon Brousson, was in search for a meaningful, environmental change that can make a difference in reducing the prevalence of single use plastic. He created his first reusable shopping bag that quickly invoked interest with friends, family and even strangers during his shopping trips. His humble beginnings have seen the company grow to offer reusable shopping bags, produce bags, backpacks and coffee cups and one of the highest quality stainless steel drink bottle ranges on the Australian market. Onya’s products are 100% recyclable and made out of recycled material such as rPET, a fabric produced from recycled plastic water bottles. Being a B Corp certified company, their products are verified to be responsibly made, both ethically and sustainably, in China. Onya is 100% Australian owned and designed.

How To Use It
Compostable bin liners need to be treated slightly differently to traditional plastic bin liners since they are made from the material which is designed to break down more easily. Therefore, you should use your Onya bin liners ideally within 3-6 months of purchase and keep in a cool dark space, otherwise they may start to break down.
If placing wet waste in your bin bags, you need to empty your bin more frequently as added moisture may initiate the composting process and could lead to spills or splitting when emptying your bin on a weekly basis.
