James founded Patch after his experience with his son having a reaction to the chemicals that are added to plasters. After looking into this experience he found it's one people all over the world struggle with as well as the huge amounts of waste plasters caused. Being disposable in nature, plastic-based single-use plasters are contributing to our huge plastic pollution problem. James was motivated to find an alternative and found the solution in bamboo. Patch was created to replace the chemical infused plastic plasters for bamboo-based natural ones. Every Patch plaster is all-natural, organic and biodegradable with specialist ranges for even the most sensitive skin. Patch also use their brand to give back across Australia with charity collaborations for projects such as the support of East Timor communities and marine conservation and protection.
