We all know plastic is bad—for us, for our businesses, and for the environment. In its long, long life, a disposable plastic cup will travel from a plant spitting off pollution to the store and eventually your hand. Then after you toss that cup aside, it’s taken to the landfill, where it piles up with others of its kind and slowly decomposes, releasing toxic chemicals into the earth and air as it does. But in a disposables driven world, what is the alternative?
Compostable products are different—they don’t just pile up in the landfill. Instead, they break down into carbon dioxide, water, inorganic compounds, and biomass in a commercial composting facility, which can then be used to create healthy, happy, better soil.
