In our throw-away culture, there is a high need to create materials that can be less harmful for our environment;
biodegradable and compostable materials are two of the new green living trends. As we focus on making sure that
more and more of what we throw out from our businesses, homes and offices is biodegradable or even compostable,
we are closer to the goal of making the Earth an eco-friendly place with less waste.

However, only few people understand the difference between these two terms, leading to confusion in the
marketplace. It is important to understand the meaning of ‘compostable’ and ‘biodegradable’ since they are not
equivalent and should not be used interchangeably.

‘A biodegradable material is not necessarily compostable, but a compostable material is always biodegradable’

The world sips through 1 billion straws a day. Between the US and UK we get through over 550 million plastic
drinking straws a day. Think about it, you use it for a few minutes sipping a smoothie, sipping a cocktail or shoving
it in a can of drink.

Let’s try and make a difference.
