Charcoal Bamboo Bandages
If we had these black bandages in our emo phase, we would've held so much power. Amped with activated charcoal that aids and helps draw out impurities and infections from minor wounds, these strips are the new ace of your medicine cabinet and travel emergency kit. Did we mention they're 100% compostable in your compost bin at home?
The paper tube and wrappers are 100% compostable and recyclable. The bamboo bandages are also compostable.
These are general guidelines for broadly-recyclable materials. Check with your local recycler to confirm what they take.
About the Brand
PATCH Bamboo Bandages
PATCH is breaking the cycle of the existing pharma market, often associated with chemicals and adverse effects, with their sustainable bamboo strips—a natural approach to wound care. Nutricare founder James Dutton noticed that while trying to protect his son’s wounds, his skin would react badly to regular wound coverings, with redness and swelling. Shocked to discover what lurked in common bandages, he launched PATCH to create alternative (and compostable) ones that are better for the planet and everyone in it, especially those with the most sensitive skin.Shop Brand
How to use

What People Are Saying
- potato peelings
Best bandages ever!
Amazing! I feel like they only keep improving their bandages, they can stick for just as long as a regular bandage, maybe even longer! Great breathability, and they compost faster than some of my potato peelings! FANTASTIC product for everyone looking to reduce their plastic usage!
