A few years ago, I had to visit the landfill to drop off some heavy stuff. Things we really don’t think about every day hit me in the face like a ton of bricks. To know more about the experience please take some time to tour a landfill…
Then the research started into alternatives. Some of the players marauding about conveniently seemed to be hiding deep dark secrets. The energy consumption and toxic wastes from paper manufacturing are documented quite well.
The wide latitudes used on the word “compost” was quite a revelation. The word we knew to be used for stuff that goes into a dungy stinky pile in the backyard, was now used for stuff that needs precise ambient conditions like temperature, C/N ratio, moisture content, porosity etc. where apparently different plastics and “processed” organic single-use items could be “composted”. In our city now no so-called compostable plastics are allowed in the green bin anymore…
So the quest started for Simatural backyard compostable single-use alternatives and here we are…
About 36 million pounds of single-use plastic is found in the city’s waste stream per year.’
