Every piece of plastic made over the last century is still present somewhere on our planet.
The amount of waste diverted from landfills through composting has quadrupled since 1990, according to the EPA.
Together, we Americans generate over 30 million tons of plastic waste each year. About 10 percent of that is recycled. The rest is sent to landfills and left to litter the planet for the next 30 generations.
Compostable bioplastics will completely return to organic matter by becoming nutrient rich biomass through the composting process in as little as 3 months, leaving no toxins or residue like petroleum-based plastics.
