What are compostable
plastics?

Compostable plastics are made of

biobased materials which consist,

either partly or entirely,  

of renewable plant materials.

WHAT HAPPENS TO OUR

COMPOSTABLE PLASTIC TRASH?

Most compostable 

plastics must be

composted in an

industrial facility

Most cities

do not sort these products and therefore, they

end-up in landfills

or oceans

They take as long as regular plastic

to break-down

in oceans

Some of them

still contain

harmful chemicals, fertilizers and pesticides

DO NOT BE TRICKED

Despite being a great concept, compostable plastics

do not solve the plastic problem;

they add to its complexity.
