Is your Packaging Compostable?

Some packaging companies advertise their products as biodegradable, but it is important to be aware of the difference! Biodegradable products may not actually any better for the environment than landfill trash. There is no specific time frame for a biodegradable product to degrade. They may not even break down completely, instead becoming dangerous microplastics. For more information on terms such as Compostable, Biodegradable, and Oxo-Degradable,  visit our blog post.

Compostability certification ensures that the products will completely degrade within 90 days in a composting facility. In doing so, they will not leave behind any harmful or toxic residues.

Compost has many beneficial uses, including fertilizing and improving soil health; truly giving back to the environment.
