Food Service Ware - Compostable Plastic - BPI Certified Products
Consider using reusables instead of single-use items.
Most composters across California now view compostable plastic as a contaminant to the finished compost and are screening these and along with other single-use plastics out and putting them into the landfill. Compost is a soil amendment that gets applied to agricultural lands to nourish the soil that the food and beverages we consume are grown.
