Define the Compostables:
Suitable for home or commercial composting process
Composting refers to the process of producing compost through aerobic decomposition of biodegradable organic matter. The decomposition is performed primarily by aerobes, although larger creatures such as ants, nematodes, and oligochaete worms also contribute.
Composting can be divided into the two areas; home composting and industrial composting. Both types of composting use the same biological processes, however techniques and different factors must be considered.
Products suitable for home/organics composting
(These products can also be processed at an industrial composting facility):
Wooden/Bamboo Serving ware
Sugarcane bagasse or bamboo fibres: plates, trays, cups and clamshells
Products suitable for industrial composting only:
Paper cups with PLA lining
Food containers with PLA lining
PLA clear cups and deli containers
PLA bioplastics are produced from PLA (poly-lactic-acid) harvested from corn starch, which is a natural, annually renewable resource. The production of PLA produces fewer greenhouse gas emissions compared to conventional plastic production. PLA can be composted in commercial compost facilities. Please stay tuned as we will be updating more information soon!
