Are the Biodegradable Briefs fully biodegradable?
The underwear is 97% biodegradable. The waist and leg elastic contain a small amount (less than 3% of the total garment) of elastane that is not biodegradable. The tiny amount of elastane will eventually degrade however it will take a longer time than the rest of the garment. You will be able to see the garment start biodegrading in active soil within weeks, however, the elastane will take up to 3-5 years.
When your underwear arrives it will come in a FSC recycled kraft envelope and compostable satchel both which are 100% biodegradable.
