What about compostable plastics?
There is some confusion about this in the media, so we have some answers for you:
BPI Certified Compostable Plastics
One of the most important elements of making compost at our facility is heat. Because we carefully control this, we are able to accept compostable plastic products such as cups, cutlery, clamshells and compostable bags.
We have been working with our supplier to distribute a quality product that completely breaks down in our facility. The EcoSafe bags that we use in our totes and sell to our customers display the BPI logo, which is what we look for when determining if your product will properly break down in the composting process. Look for this when purchasing compostable material for your event or location.
Biodegradable is not compostable!
