Nice to see that large consumer food companies are starting to think about compostable packaging. I hope they remember to tell the customer that this only works in a COMPOST system. If items that are compostable are put into the regular garbage they do not decompose. Conditions are not ideal in landfills for biodegradation. Some food does degrade, but at a very slow rate or about 50 percent every 20 years, according to the Garbage Project. The remainder of the refuse in landfills seems to have retained its original weight volume, and form even after 25 years. here’s more from fisher too.
