More On Composting
Did you know that compostable products won’t break down in a landfill? This is why it’s so important to ensure that your compostable products are put into an environment where they can properly break down.
Compostable products need air, moisture, and sunlight to break down properly, and this isn’t something that you get in landfills. Once your compostable product has broken down, it leaves no toxic materials behind, and can help to grow new plants! How amazing!
Unfortunately, it can take over 1000 years for plastic to break down, and even then, it still isn’t gone forever but turns into microplastics floating in the ocean. Less than 5% of all plastic gets recycled, and everything else ends up in landfill. This is why it’s so important to choose compostable, and ensure they are given the right environment to break down in!
