Hello, we are Peco Poncho. We supply custom printed disposable rain ponchos for outdoor events. All our material is 100% biodegradable and 100% compostable.





No plastic.

No waste.


Plastic disposable ponchos are often made of polyethylene which is estimated to take

hundreds of years to degrade and could end up landfill or oceans polluting our planet.

We use biodegradable and compostable material which breaks down in the

right environment in less than 24 months. The ink we use is biodegradable too.

Our Story


At Peco Poncho we passionately believe in sustainability and innovation.

We are aware of the global problem of plastic waste. We wanted to do

our small part in helping others access products that don’t harm the planet.


At a London music festival it rained like a monsoon when it was

supposed to be a sunny summer day. After seeing plastic ponchos strewn around

Hyde Park knowing that they were used only for a few hours and could spend

hundreds of years in a waste site, we had a light bulb moment.


We knew we could do better.

What does biodegradable mean?

Biodegradation is a chemical process in which materials naturally break down when it interacts with micro-organisms, and degrades back into natural elements either water, carbon or compost.

What does compostable mean?

Composting occurs when materials biodegrade under specific temperatures and timeframes. At the end of the process only natural products remain, either water, carbon or compost which leaves no visible contaminants or toxic residue. There are various regulations and standards that a product can meet in order to be described as “compostable” e.g.  EN 13432 in Europe and ASTM 6400 in USA.

What is Peco Poncho made of?

The material is a biodegradable polyester which is from non-food agricultural feedstocks.

Will my Peco Poncho biodegrade whilst it’s raining?

Not at all. Biodegradation of any Peco Poncho will only begin once your poncho is in contact with the right compost or soil environment. So you can enjoy your poncho until you are finished wearing it.

How does the Peco Eco Poncho biodegrade?

The Peco Eco Poncho will biodegrade within 24 months in contact with compost. Typical disposable plastic rain ponchos contain a substance called polyethylene which causes those ponchos to degrade over hundreds of years in landfill. The Our products do not contain any polyethylene which helps them to biodegrade in less than 24 months.

How does the Peco Bloomer Poncho biodegrade?

The Peco Bloomer Poncho will biodegrade within 24 months in contact with compost or soil. 

Can I leave my Peco Poncho on the ground to biodegrade?

Your poncho will not biodegrade if you leave it on the ground. Please put in a compost bin at home or return to a commercial compost facility. The Peco Bloomer Poncho can be composted or planted in soil.

Can I put it in the regular trash?

Please put your poncho in a home compost bin, return it to a commercial compost facilty or plant in soil as appropriate. Your poncho may go to regular landfill if it goes in the trash.

I am not wearing my Peco Poncho right away. How should I store it?

Peco Ponchos are best kept in cool dry conditions.
