This set of 25 plastic-free bandages by Patch help you decrease your ecological footprint. Each strip is made from 100% soft organic bamboo fibre. Bamboo is a rapidly renewable resource that grows faster than trees, uses less water, produces more oxygen and requires no pesticides or herbicides. It also ensures these strips are fully biodegradable - they are compostable and have been tested to break down in garden soil within weeks. These strips are free from irritating chemicals, allowing for suitable protection and soft support for all sensitive skin types. They're latex-free, vegan-friendly, cruelty-free and contain no plastics or toxins. They are also hypoallergenic, so perfect for those with sensitive skin. These strips are also tested by our family and "stick" as effectively as any regular bandage that you're used to.
Individual strip dimensions: approximately 3.3 x 0.7 x 0.04" (whole strip), 0.5 x 0.5 x .04 (gauze)
