Composting is mother nature’s way of recycling
Add your used compostable packaging to a composter to speed up the process of turning organic waste into compost to feed and replenish soil. A contained composter preserves heat, keep rodents away and eliminate odour.
- * Compostable products will break down into natural elements within 90 days when treated in a commercial facility as defined by European standard EN13432.
