How to compost BPI biodegradable packaging
PLA is currently compostable in industrial facilities only and not suitable for backyard compost bins. At industrial compost facilities, PLA will be exposed to heat and moisture so that it can be broken down into small organic compounds faster.
PLA is a 100% natural and compostable material. If it finds its way into the environment and oceans it will naturally breakdown. The amount of time will depend on the conditions the material has been exposed to. Typically in compost facilities, it will take between 90 to 180 days to fully degrade.
It will not cause any toxicity, toxic gas, or environmental pollution not to mention it is a completely renewable resource!
