The Hunger Project and HERO Packaging

Bohemian Inspire will now be donating 1-5% of every order to the hunger project.

The Hunger Project’s goal is to end world hunger by 2030. Our approach is different – we see people living in hunger as the solution, not the problem. We shift the mindsets of women and men so they transform into leaders for the sustainable end of hunger. Then, through our programs such as education, microfinance, agriculture and health, we empower people with the skills, knowledge and resources they need to break the poverty cycle themselves.

2019 sees a more positive step to helping organizations and the world be a much better place. 

Here at Bohemian Inspire, I believe everyone deserves a better life and every little bit goes a very long way so I have opened up an account to start donating from all orders received. If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation yourself please follow this link and thank you for helping make the world a much better place 😘

 

We are also implementing the use of HERO packaging bags.

WHAT EXACTLY ARE THEY MADE FROM?

HEROPACKS are made from biodegradable materials, mainly corn starch and cassava roots. 

HOW DO WE COMPOST THEM?

Ideally, these should be sent to composting facilities to be properly broken down and composted. If you are in Australia, please CLICK HERE to find a composter near you. You can also ask your local council if they can provide a composting green bin for you. 

To compost them at home, it’s best to cut them up and place in your compost bin (as “brown” materials). These will completely break down within 90 days in a compostable environment. 

WHAT HAPPENS IF THEY END UP IN LANDFILL?

The best part is that they still break down (with no waste and no methane production) in landfill. It takes about 2 years rather than 90 days. In contrast, traditional plastic shipping mailers take 400 years or more to break down, and release deadly methane gas into the atmosphere.

WHAT HAPPENS IN WATER?

They are water resistant but if they are placed in water for a long time, they will break down there too. It takes longer to break down in water because of the cooler temperatures.
