Re: “The Problems With Bioplastics

Finally some accurate info on compostable plastics! I know of no Northern California compost facility that is properly processing rigid compostable plastics, yet some are contracted to accept them. It is likely a mistake for cities to be directing their use through sustainable foodware ordinances. It's not that rigid compostable plastics aren't breaking down in the piles. It's that they aren't allowed in the piles in the first place. All jurisdictions will be expected to be making, and using, huge amounts of (quality?) compost under SB 1383. We have to keep our compost salable by keeping compostable plastics out of the compost feedstock - and then stop greenwashing rigid compostable plastics as sustainable.
