Why Choose O F Pack's Compostable Packaging?
Frequently Asked Questions
Compostable packaging is made from materials that break down over a certain time period. These materials are weaker in structure and because of this, reusing or recycling compostable packaging is not advisable. Generally, we recommend compostable packaging for single-use packs or as garbage bin liners. Only paper is both a compostable and recyclable material. Other compostable materials like PLA and PBS contaminate the recycling stream.
