Compostable Pallet Wrap

You can order individual boxes or small Compostable Pallet Wrap orders via our website. For larger quantities contact our sales team through the business enquiry form here.

We've also recently partnered with Opal Packaging Plus and they're the exclusive distributor of our Compostable Machine Pallet Wrap. Once we've received your enquiry through our business enquiry form our team may connect you with the team to assist with freight options.

  1. Once your pallet is stacked, grab your Compostable Hand Pallet Wrap and tie it to a corner on the pallet base
  2. Begin hand wrapping the bottom of your pallet by walking around the pallet — do this step a few times to ensure your load is stable
  3. Gradually work your way up and around your pallet load. Make sure there is some resistance, but try not to over-stretch the wrap
  4. Tear your wrap once you've finished, and tuck or tie the top corner

For hand-wrapping, we recommend using hand savers or a handheld dispenser. They help stop the edge of the wrap catching and make the work much easier on your hands.

  1. Ensure your Compostable Machine Pallet Wrap is correctly loaded onto the core holder of your machine and configure the settings to your requirements
  2. Once your pallet is stacked, take it to the machine and place it on the turntable 
  3. Pull some wrap away from the roll and attach it to your load or pallet
  4. Start the machine wrapping process following the manufacturer's instructions and relevant safety protocols
  5. If your machine does not automatically cut the wrap off the roll on completion, cut the end of the wrap and tuck or tie it into the wrapped pallet

The steps for Machine Pallet Wrap use may vary depending on the machine you have — we recommend a pre-stretch up to a 250% for optimal stretch and stick, depending on the micron you select.

Great Wrap has a higher bulk density than traditional stretch wrap, resulting in a very strong and durable product. Because of this, we recommend down gauging the thickness of your Great Wrap. If you usually use a 17µm, we'd generally recommend our 14µm. Our team can assist you with the wrap thickness selection. 

It is also important to know there is a correct way to load the wrap onto an automatic wrapping machine because there is a cling and slip layer. The outside layer (slip) must always be wrapped on the outside. 

The recommended pre-stretch of our machine pallet wrap varies depending on the thickness. We recommend:

  • Up to 200% pre-stretch for 14µm
  • Up to 225% pre-stretch for 17µm
  • Up to 250% pre-stretch for 20µm

If you need assistance with your machine settings please get in touch with our team via sales@greatwrap.co.

If you have a compost system at work, make sure you throw your used Great Wrap in it — it will break down in under 180 days.

If you don't, the next best option is through your regular waste stream. While the break down time is longer than in organic recycling, it still surpasses traditional plastic stretch wrap in landfills by decomposing much faster, and it won't leave microplastics behind.

If you'd like information on end-of-life options, please get in touch with us so we can connect you with a local compost facility.

Yes they are! The desiccant sachets inside our pallet wrap boxes are 100% compostable.

They're made with calcium chloride and Montmorillonite Clay, making them safe for home and industrial compost systems.

Our Compostable Machine Pallet Wrap rolls are sold individually, and our Compostable Hand Pallet Wrap is sold in packs of four. There is no minimum order required for either.

We proudly supply compostable wrap to businesses big and small, so you can order as much or as little as you need.

If you’d like to place a larger order of Machine or Hand Pallet Wrap to reduce shipping costs and the overall price, please fill in the business enquiry form here.

We sure do. To discuss bulk order discounts, please fill in the business enquiry form here, and we will work to find an option that is right for your business.

While we have yet to launch Compostable Pallet Wrap globally, we can send it internationally with a minimum order of one shipping container. All international orders will be shipped ex-works — meaning you are responsible for organising freight and delivery.

Great Wrap looks and feels just like traditional pallet wrap — but it needs to be treated a little differently once used. It is essential that everyone receiving Great Wrap knows how to dispose of it properly. 

Our pallet wrap customers are given several options for letting their customers know that they are receiving Great Wrap:

  • Branded compostable stickers to put on their pallets with a QR code for disposal information
  • A full welcome pack with email communication suggestions and social media templates

If you'd like to see our welcome pack, fill in the business enquiry form on our business product pages.

Great Mate and Nudie Rolls

Great Mate was designed and manufactured in Melbourne. We chose to manufacture Great Mate locally so we could control all aspects of the design process.

You can purchase Nudie Rolls and Great Mate dispensers directly through our website, www.greatwrap.com.au. So if you’re reading this, you’re in the right place.

2. Place your hands on both ends where the logos are

3. Gently push your fingers in to release the top shell

Around 373 million plastic water bottles end up as waste each year in Australia, and of all the plastic bottles that are placed into recycling, only 36% are recycled. The rest end up in landfills and spill into waterways, which causes several environmental and health issues.

The Great Mate helps solve this problem by looking at other ways to use plastic and give it a more meaningful life rather than ending up in a landfill.

Great Mate is made from a type of plastic that can't be put in your home collection bin. 

We know that giving plastic a new life feels great, so if you have an old Great Mate or broken pieces that have been replaced and would like to recycle them, you can send them back to us, and we will repurpose them.

Reach out to hello@greatwrap.co for more details. 

Nudie Rolls are microwave safe at low heat for short periods. However, our wrap will melt at medium or high heat, so keep your eye on it.

When it is time to refill your Great Mate, you can buy Nudie Rolls on our website. You can order them a pack at a time or set yourself up for a Great Wrap subscription, so you never run out again.

When you've finished with your Nudie Rolls, simply throw the used wrap straight into your home compost bin with your food scraps — it'll break down within 180 days. 

If you don't have a compost bin at home, you can put your used wrap into your normal waste. Please don't put used Nudie Rolls in your home FOGO bin or your recycling bin as it looks just like traditional cling wrap, however it's actually compostable! 

Our Nudie Rolls are compostable and should break down in your home compost in under 180 days!

General Enquiries

Great Wrap is made with compostable biopolymers. Currently, we’re using plant-based oils, agroforestry waste and pbat within our range of products. Our material inputs are certified home compostable and food contact approved. 

In the future, we plan to make our wrap with PHA in our own biorefinery. PHA is not only home compostable but marine degradable too! Meaning it will completely break down in the ocean as well as a compost environment.

Great Wrap is made in our Melbourne-based factory, where our team works hard to manufacture it, coordinate packaging and distribute our orders. We also have our main office at this location so our team can work collaboratively.

It sure is! Our wrap only begins to break down in a compost environment. It needs the action of microbes and moisture for the composting process to start.

Rain and water won’t affect the performance of Great Wrap. Our wrap will only begin to break down once microbes in your soil or compost start their process.

When you've finished with your box and inner core, you can put them straight into your curbside recycling bin.
