FixIts - remoldable bioplastic to easily repair rigid things!

Reuse is queen! So we're helping you fix your toys (and bikes, chairs, glasses, zips, mugs, and everything else) with this new product: FixIts!
Dunk in freshly-boiled water for 1-2 minutes to soften. Mold, and let it harden for 5 minutes.

Remoldable - just pop back into freshly-boiled water!
Compostable (in your home organic waste bin)!
Fix anything rigid - or make something you need - replace a piece for a game or toy. Can be textured and painted on (with acrylic (plastic - boo!) paints only though - like sticks to like). You can mix colours. Great for model making and miniatures.

What it contains
8 sticks of (re-)moldable bioplastic. Each stick is 150mm x 16mm x 3.5mm and about 10g weight
Feel great about where it comes from
Raw materials from Europe? tbc
Manufactured in Europe? Yes - UK
What's it made from? Bioplastic - an innovative, carbon-neutral material made from plants, making it carbon-neutral because plants absorb carbon as they grow - whereas petroleum-based plastic has a carbon footprint of up to 6 times its own weight in CO2.
What's it packaged in? Sustainability-certified* card sleeve that is sealed with a cellulose sticker that is biodegradable. It folds out to reveal instructions on how to use the sticks.
Shipping packaging from manufacturer to us: Cardboard only
Plastic-free? 100% free of petroleum-derived plastic. Made of bioplastic (from plants)
Reused upcycled or recycled? No
* We're not allowed mention which certificate because of bizarre bureaucracy, for details search our site for 'Not allowed to say FSC'.
Feel great about where it goes after you've used it
Biodegradable / compostable? Yes - industrially compostable (organic / food waste bin) if / when you ever finish with it
Reusable / refillable? Yes - can be remolded as often as you like
Recyclable? Not sure - tbc
Feel great about you and your child using it
Great for ages: Molding it involves hot water so only for people able to manage that safely. Once molded, it's safe for all ages but I wouldn't chew on it, and remember any small item presents a choking hazard to a young child
Shelf life: Indefinite
Safety standards met: EU safety standards
Easy to wash-off clothes / skin? TBC - could be messy if on clothes
Improvements we're working on in this product: None - but you tell us, how could it be even better?
FixIts is electrically insulating, but we advise you to stick to household electrical items under 24 volts
