Composting Plastic At Home
While most agree that some  plastics are indeed compostable, many say that they can only composted in large scale municipal schemes. As we don’t have many large scale municipal schemes this they say is a pointless advantage.I say the days of large scale municipal schemes is fast approaching as governments aim to divert biodegradable rubbish from landfill sites.
AND I have used and composted a number of compostable plastic products 

Biodegradable, Compostable Plastics

What is biodegradable? Biodegradable products break down through a naturally occurring microorganism into simple, stable compounds which can be absorbed into the ecosystem. More about biodegrading here

What is compostable? To be classed compostable, items must biodegrade within a certain time (around the rate at which paper biodegrades), and the resulting biomass must be free of toxins, able to sustain plant life and be used as an organic fertilizer or soil additive. Read more about compostable plastics here

  1. I tried doing this from my phone and it’s a little confusing… But! Its great to see a give away that isn’t giving away unnecessary junk and is spreading the message that plastic IS rubbish, rubbish we can’t continue to use willy-nilly. Produce bags elimate the need for plastic and are reusable. If you’re conscious of single use disposables, these produce bags are a no brainer!

  2. I really need to learn more about reducing my waste and looking after our environment
