There are many different reasons why we should all reduce our carbon footprint. Reducing your carbon footprint not only mitigates the effects of global climate change, but can also help you live a healthier lifestyle, and also save you a reasonable amount of money in the long run. Moreover, the higher the number of people taking efforts to reduce their carbon footprint, the more that can help to improve public health, boost the global economy, and even help to maintain biodiversity on Earth. Now, while it’s obvious that a single person alone cannot make a difference, it all starts with small changes in each person’s lifestyle. Small but significant actions like turning off the tap while brushing your teeth or while taking a shower, turning down the heating by a few degrees, driving less, or even choosing to only use Eco-friendly single-use everyday products that are designed to be both recyclable and compostable can all make a huge difference. One great example for the latter option is to stop using your typical stretch wrap, which is made of conventional plastic, and starting to use a better and more Eco-friendly alternative, like the Great Wrap.
The Great Wrap is a revolutionary stretch film wrap material made with potato waste, which ultimately makes it 100% compostable, meaning it will add organic matter to your compost pile, for which it will break down in under 180 days, all while leaving no microplastics behind.
THE COMPANY’S STORY
The Great Wrap was thoroughly developed by a team of bio-designers, engineers, and scientists who are part of a materials science company that’s on a mission to end the world’s population reliance on petroleum-based plastics for good.
The company’s mission originally started with Jordy and Julia Kay, the Co-founders of Great Wrap, who are an Australian couple who’s truly passionate about reimagining the materials used to manufacture everyday products in order to ultimately solve tomorrow’s problems related that are caused by the current everyday products made of non-recyclable and non-compostable materials which can negatively impact the Earth’s climate and all of its different life forms.
Now, back to the Great Wrap line. The company’s current product line essentially consists of two (x2) unique Eco-friendly products, which are the Great Mate Starter Kit and the Nudie Rolls.
So, without any further ado, let’s talk a little more about Great Wrap’s two awesome Eco-friendly products and see how each of them can help you reduce your carbon footprint throughout your everyday life.
Great Mate Starter Kit
Firstly, we have the company’s Great Mate Starter Kit, which comes with one (x1) Great Mate unit, plus a set of two (x2) Nudie Rolls (which are the rolls that pack the Great Wrap stretch wrap).
The Great Mate is a stretch wrap dispenser that’s designed to dispense, as well as slice and dice the Great Wrap compostable stretch film wrap.
The Great Mate comes at a fairly compact size, measuring just 3 inches in diameter by 16 inches tall.
This stretch wrap dispenser features a unique internal spool design that allows the Great Wrap compostable stretch wrap to glide seamlessly off its dedicated storage roll, and it also integrates a built-in slide button that makes slicing the Great Wrap stretch wrap a breeze.
Just like the company’s Great Wrap stretch wrap, the Great Mate Starter Kit is also manufactured with the environment in mind, as each unit is made from recycled plastic pellets that come from a total of 33 recycled PET bottles.
PRICING & AVAILABILITY
The Great Mate Starter Kit is currently available in four (x4) different stylish color models: Lime Green, Grey’ish Blue, Light Brown, and Black.
Once again, each kit comes with a Great Mate unit, plus 2 Nudie Rolls, and each kit is priced at just $39. You can either get it as a One-Time Purchase, or, as a more affordable long-term option, you can opt to subscribe to the company’s subscription plan and save some money in the long-run while still getting a bimonthly (every 2 months) supply of Nudie Rolls for your Great Mate stretch wrap dispenser.
If you’re interested in purchasing it, then all you have to do is to access Great Wrap’s official shopping page.
Finally, we have the Nudie Rolls, which are certified home compostable stretch cling wrap rolls that pack the Great Wrap compostable stretch film wrap.
Each Nudie Roll also comes at a fairly compact size, measuring just 13 inches tall, and packing a total of 98 feet of Great Wrap compostable stretch film wrap.
The Great Wrap compostable stretch wrap is also fairly thin, as it measures just 15 µm (micrometers), and as said before, is made of potato waste, which makes it 100% compostable, and ultimately capable of breaking down in under 180 days, all without leaving any microplastics behind.
These stretch wrap rolls are designed to refill your Great Mate with absolute ease, as you just have to switch them around when your current one finishes with a brand-new one, and they’re also designed to spun from our latest and greatest formula developed for optimum wrapability.
PRICING & AVAILABILITY
Each set of Nudie Rolls includes a total of 2 rolls of Great Wrap stretch wrap, and each set is priced at just $19.
Just like the Great Mate Starter Kit, you can get them in one (or more) One-Time Purchase(s), or, as a more affordable long-term option, you can opt to subscribe to the company’s subscription plan, for which you’ll get a bimonthly (every 2 months) supply of Nudie Rolls and ultimately save some money. To purchase additional packs of 2 Nudie Rolls for your Great Mate unit, simply access Great Wrap’s corresponding shopping page.
