Because We Care … about the environment

Because We Care believes in environmentally responsible living. 

This passion has driven the development of a world-leading range of bioplastics that meets international standards of compostability.

It is a core priority to educate businesses around the world on cutting-edge sustainable products and provide a viable substitute to commonly used plastics. 

Our vision: To make a meaningful difference to the future of the planet by manufacturing a world-leading eco-friendly replacement for traditional plastics. 

Our mission: To empower organisations to minimise their ecological footprint by switching their everyday plastics for biodegradable and compostable alternatives.

Providing a substitute for plastic

Since 2000, Because We Care has worked hard to develop products that lead the way for sustainability and supports the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals for protecting the planet. 

After rigorous testing and trials, the result is a high-quality range of eco-aware items. The diverse product range meets global standards and is recognised in Australia, North America and Europe for its level of biodegradability. 


The versatile assortment of plant-based bags, packaging and personal protective equipment are completely compostable. Once disposed of correctly, they’ll be reclaimed by the earth in 90 days in an industrial composting facility or in 180 days in a home composting environment.

Because We Care are proud to deliver a high standard of customer service and strive to go above and beyond to cater for individual requirements and product specifications. By encouraging small but vital changes, Because We Care hopes to help businesses reduce their reliance on plastic and make the world a more eco-friendly place.
