What is the difference between biodegradable and compostable?
For an item to be considered compostable, it must be able to break down into smaller organic materials that can offer nutrients to the soil and plants around it. These items become usable compost in a safe and timely manner in an appropriate composting facility or home compost pile.
The term biodegradable simply means that an item will break down into smaller parts after disposal. However, being biodegradable does not mean that it is also compostable.
The biggest reason for this is that while a biodegradable item may break down into smaller bits, these components may not be able to provide any nutrients when used as compost.
Are s'wheat straws® biodegradable and compostable?
Our straws are 100% biodegradable and 100% compostable.
When you are done with your drink you can safely place the straws into a backyard compost.
Since our straws are literally plant stems, they will compost in time!
