Note: The most important way to reduce our environmental impact is to find ways to generate as little waste as possible. For businesses that need to use disposable products, it’s important to note that many products made from compostable bioplastic (made from plant materials like corn) can only be successfully composted in industrial composting facilities that reach high temperatures. Our current thinking is that for businesses that use disposable restaurant ware, it’s best to use the most easily biodegraded products that are available now that can work for each use (see guidelines and suggestions below). For some uses, compostable bioplastics seem to be the most eco-friendly current option, but it’s important that they be certified compostable. If they are disposed of in house, we encourage businesses to have them industrially composted (see #6).
