The use of plastics is high on everyone’s agenda, as it should be. Plastics have had such a detrimental effect on our planet and our climate. Thankfully we are beginning to take notice of the harm that is being done but we need to do more, and fast.
Fortunately, there are alternatives appearing on the market which are cost effective and most importantly can help us further change. Whilst recycling can help, committing to biodegradable and compostable products takes us a step further.
Biodegradable products break down, over time, into their individual components, back into the environment. This process can take up to two years but requires no further action.
Compostable products are made of organic matter (such as corn starch) these products, when processed through and industrial composting facility, can break down to form a compost which is safe. They also, under the correct conditions, are absorbed into the natural environment. Which can take much less time than biodegradable products.
Here at Love Tiki, we are committed to doing our part to helping save our planet. If you too are ready to go greener then here are some products to help you.
Recyclable products can be reused, after being broken down into their original materials. many of our disposable glasses and paper products can be placed straight in your recycling waste to be used again.
