Compostable = biodegradable, but fast!
Compostable means that a product can break down within 12 weeks.
Only compostable packaging can be included in food waste recycling – if it’s only biodegradable, it may not break down fast enough. Wooden houses are ‘biodegradable’, but can stand for generations.
