These two terms are commonly interchanged but what really is their difference? Read this article to find out!
Biodegradable vs. Compostable
🌱 BIODEGRADABLE
Materials that will eventually breakdown to into naturally occurring minerals, and blend back in with the earth. Ideally, this does not leave any toxins behind.

 

🌱 COMPOSTABLE
Biodegradable materials that break down more quickly and leave nutrient-rich organic material called humus, which is used for a healthy soil environment.

Check the label ✔️

Not all products are made the same. When buying things, it's important for you to take note of what the product is made for so that you also know how to properly dispose, or reuse, them ♻️
