Store them indoors, or undercover. They are best kept in a cool dry place out of direct sunlight, without extremes of temperature. Please take care of your oldest stock first.
How long will they take to compost?
It depends how they’re disposed of. These bags are certified both home and industrially compostable. The OK HOME Compost certification requires at least 90% degradation in 12 months at ambient temperature. Industrial composting certifications requires the compostable materials to disintegrate after 12 weeks and completely biodegrade after six months when disposed of correctly.
But they won’t break down in landfill?
Even if the compostable bags ended up in landfill, our bags are a much better option for the environment than plastic bags. Compostable bags are made from a renewable resource (in our case, corn starch), rather than non-renewable petroleum-based plastic. What's more, compostable plastics are also less toxic than conventional counterparts.
Can you compost pet waste?
Yes, poop can be suitable for composting but please ask your customers to check with their local council if they accept pet waste in their composting scheme first.
