While it is excellent to see more and more types of plastic being recycled, there are two important reasons why biodegradable is better. Firstly, compostable packaging is made from renewable plant material and secondly it returns to its natural elements in composting environments.
Most food packaging is plastic or contains plastic. According to this Treevolution, only 17% of plastic gets recycled. Some ends up in landfills where it stays for generations and the rest pollutes our environment and our seas.
For this reason most of out products are Biodegradable or Compostable. Compostable materials are similar to biodegradable materials, as they are both intended to return to the earth safely. However, compostable materials go one step further by providing the earth with nutrients once the material has completely broken down.
