How to Compost Your Packaging

At EcoPackables, we champion sustainable practices to protect our environment. Composting your packaging is a powerful way to contribute to this mission. Whether you're utilizing compostable films or exploring methods for home composting, here's a guide to help you make a positive impact.

Embracing Compostable Packaging

Compostable films, a hallmark of our commitment to eco-friendly solutions, can be disposed of at industrial composting facilities. However, if you opt for home composting, it is recommended that you cut your mailer into smaller pieces. More surface area means faster breakdown, accelerating the composting cycle and reducing waste.

Finding Industrial Compost Facilities

Locating nearby industrial compost facilities is pivotal. These facilities, often supported by state agencies, accept compostable materials for processing. Utilize directories or state resources to identify these locations, ensuring proper disposal of your compostable packaging. Here are a few different resources to help you find a facility near you:

Navigating Unavailability

In cases where local facilities don't accept compostable packaging and home composting isn't feasible, landfill disposal remains an option. Rest assured, our compostable packaging won't degrade into harmful microplastics if it inadvertently blows off trucks on its way to landfills, alleviating environmental concerns.

By composting your packaging, you're not just discarding waste – you're nurturing a cycle that fosters sustainability. Each action, no matter how small, contributes to a brighter, greener future for generations to come.
