Frequently Asked Questions:
Good Earth Packaging is here to help answer your commonly asked questions
The products that Good Earth Packaging carries that are listed as “compostable friendly” or “certified compostable” mean that they are fit for processing in certain commercial recycling facilities that also compost raw materials.
These plant based plastics (Crystallized PLA) only start to break down under certain temperatures, and may not be fit to compost at home in your garden or in your compost bin because the specific temperatures are not met in the same regard.
We recommend that you recycle these units that are PLA friendly as usual, and the recycling facility will take care of the rest.
Ever seen a paper straw in a compostable cup or a fibre-based to-go container with your takeaway food inside, from a restaurant? If you have then chances are we carry it!
We also carry such items including wooden cutlery and plates, compostable cutlery, cold and hot cups, plastic free PLA based disposable straws, food service disposable dinnerware, which are all designed with practicality and today’s trends in mind.
