PrimeWare’s Definition of Compostable

Posted in Uncategorized by primeware on November 16, 2009

Compostable products are biodegradable, but better! When compostable products break down, they release rich nutrients into the soil. These products break down within several months in a composting facility. In order to break down properly, compostable products must go to a composting facility or a home composter. Compostable products should NOT be placed in recycling bins, as they will taint the recycling process. Compostability is a desirable feature in disposable tableware and cutlery, and compostable products like this are commonly made from bagasse and PLA (polylactic acid).

Is this similar to your definition of compostable? How would you define it?
