Composting Helpage

We all want to play our part in creating a better future and prolonging the health of our planet, and that's why purchasing and using compostable packaging products is such a benefit to your carbon emissions and the sustainability of the world itself.

We work with a number of manufacturers that create compostable products, whether that's home or commercially. Please look for this logo to easily identify which are.





So, how do I compost these products?


There are a number of methods in which to do so, and some are as easy as buying a home composter and housing the decomposing packaging at a minimum of 25°c heat for a few weeks out the back, to then be used in your garden! Other compostable items will need to be commercially composted which is often the case with Vegware products. These have to be collected and composted in processing plants.


The ability to do this is getting easier and cheaper, as First Mile operates RecycleBox, a courier collection for smaller operations. Their useful app allows you to order bags and collections, pay bills and with their environmental reporting tool, you can access realtime data for your disposables and what happens to them! Then you know its actually working and can use that to brag out your sustainability. Simply inform customers to dispose of used packaging in a seperate compostable collection bin, and allow First Mile to do the rest. Visit the link above to find out what services they offer in your area.

What are the options for larger operations?


Those that will have much more packaging for composting can link up with a  local collection service. As Vegware products are mostly commercially compostable, they have a team of compost consultants that can help you dispose of your used-packaging correctly.
