100% Compostable Packaging
Many of us have seen label on various products stating something along the lines of: “This bag is biodegradable and compostable. Please remove tin tie and valve before composting.” So is it biodegradable or compostable? — there is an overwhelming amount of information out there.
Biodegradable vs Compostable
Compostable materials are similar to biodegradable materials, as they are both intended to go back to nature eventually. Biodegradable materials are designed to break down within commercial landfills and unfortunately not all cities have this capability. Compostable bags are plant-based and break down naturally, and additionally provide other benefits including fertilizing and improving soil health.
