Q: What are the compostable bags made out of?
A: The compostable bags are made out of PLA (Polylactic Acid) made from plant-based materials, which will break down under commercial/industrial composting conditions.
Q: How do I dispose of the compostable packaging that the cards and prints come in?
A: PLA compostable materials require commercial/industrial composting facilities to break down properly. Please check with your local waste facility to see if they accept compostable PLA materials. Home composts usually will not suffice, because they typically don't get hot enough to create the right environment to fully break them down. Unforunately, if your area does not accept compostable PLA, please put them in the garbage. Do not place in the recycling, as this contaminates the recycling.
