Have you ever found yourself confused when you’re standing at a garbage can with recycling, trash, and compost compartments? We don’t blame you. Some green film plastic bags are compostable, and some are green but no more compostable than your water bottle. And to make matters even more complicated, some of those “compostable” bags are only compostable in some facilities. And some are “biodegradable” but not “compostable.” All of this is caught up in a convoluted web of regulation, environmental concerns, and practicality. For a look at the tip of the iceberg, read this article from Civil Eats. And until all of this gets sorted out, we’re all going to continue scratching our heads when we get to the green, grey, and blue carts.
