  • Biodegradable vs Compostable

    What is biodegradable?

    Biodegradable materials – including packaging – is anything that breaks down over time. Bacteria, fungi and other biological processes contribute to this natural activity.

    Biodegradable is very broad for this reason. Most things are technically biodegradable, but many will take so long to actually break down.

    What is compostable?

    Composting is when you recycle organic waste and it converts into fertiliser.It's natural process and something many people do to use as an addition to soil.While your home compost heap might be an effective at breaking down the kinds of things you add to it, it doesn't mean it can handle packaging deemed compostable.
