Compost Connect - Leave nothing to waste
Compost Connect can help you cut the rubbish. They are a nonprofit that connects businesses to compost pickup services.
Composting certifications matter because they allow consumers to make informed decisions and dispose of packaging responsibly. They reassure consumers that when properly disposed of, the packaging will effectively breakdown as intended, in the conditions specified (home or industrial compost), without harm to the environment.
Greenwashing can trick people into acting unsustainably by misleading them. ‘Biodegradable’ and ‘compostable’ are unregulated terms that some unscrupulous companies use to appear environmentally conscious but without certifications, these claims are merely a marketing ploy without any true accountability.
Certifications combat greenwashing by assisting customers in assessing whether products meet specific compostability requirements by verifying claims made. Independently verified compost certifications demonstrate a company’s commitment to transparency and sustainability. It affirms that a company’s claims are verified against stringent national standards. Where claims to environmental impact are backed up by regulated, robust standards, it can help consumers and business owners alike to shop (and sell) responsibly.
