Down2Earth Materials is an Irish endeavour initiatiated by Southern Tapes & Packaging in 2009

PrintSince then, Down2Earth Materials has evolved into Ireland’s most trusted source for compostable products, support services, and eco information throughout Ireland. The STP initiative has grown into a business that now supplies the largest range of compostable catering disposables to over 400 businesses throughout Ireland.

STP’s partnership with VEGWARE means that we proudly supply the LARGEST RANGE of FULLY COMPOSTABLE FOODSERVICE DISPOSABLES to over 400 businesses throughout Ireland.

In 2014 Down2Earth Materials proudly won an IRISH REPAK AWARD for its committment to the education and implementation of eco-conscious packaging in Ireland.

We are proud to say that with hard work and dedication by STP, Down2Earth Materials is now an award-winning, fully functioning department within STP.


We’re not just about products, we’re about people.

As suppliers of sustainable packaging, we base our business, not just on the products we supply, but on the people that we supply them to. We work with a wide variety of people and business types, from market traders to event planners to large organisations. No matter the scale of operations, we strive to meet all their varying needs in a friendly and efficient manner.

Down2Earth Materials Compostable Packaging Range

All of the certified compostable products that we offer can be disposed of along with food waste, and will quickly break down into soil, typically 9–12 weeks under the correct temperatures. This soil helps to grow the new plants that our products are made from. This gives a win-win situation: less pressure on landfill, and the process of composting captures the nutrients and embodied energy. Unlike plastic packaging, our products are not a waste, but a resource!

A blank cup is a wasted opportunity. Printed cups are perfect for generating brand awareness to a target audience, or adding colour and character to events or special occasions.

Down2Earth Custom printed cups are Irish-made and printed full colour using vegetable-based inks, making them FULLY COMPOSTABLE.

All of our certified compostable custom printed cups can be disposed of along with food waste, and will quickly break down into soil, typically 9–12 weeks under the correct temperatures. This soil helps to grow the new plants that our products are made from.
