Compostable Paper Products: The Key to Reducing Environmental Impact

What does compostable mean?

A product can be considered compostable if it can break down into harmless natural components. Additionally, it does so at a pace that is typical of other organic materials. To produce a final compost product (CO2, water, inorganic compounds, and biomass), compostable material need microbes, humidity, and heat. 

Let us discuss about Compostable paper

They are manufactured entirely of organic materials, including cornstarch, sugarcane starch, potato starch, and natural fibres.

They can degrade in a compost environment, dissolving into natural elements. They don’t affect the environment because they are broken down into natural components. Anything that degrades biologically during composting and leaves no discernible, hazardous, or visible residues is considered compostable.

Degradation Period: 90% of biodegradable materials specifically decompose in a compost environment in a period of 180 days.

Why should you opt for Compostable paper instead of wood paper?

Compostable materials have advantages over wood paper in that they consume less energy, water, and produce fewer emissions of greenhouse gases during production. They are better for the environment and don’t affect the soil or the plants. Whereas tree papers are causing various harmful environmental effects like deforestation which contributes to global warming and loss of habitat of different organisms thus affecting the ecosystem as well.

Advantages of Composting

The conversion of organic debris into soil full of nutrients through composting is a process that is naturally occurring. The compostable paper products from OG Hemp help this cycle of regeneration in a number of ways when they are discarded out in a compost bin:

    • Rich Soil with Nutrients: As paper products break down, they return vital nutrients to the soil itself, enriching it and encouraging plant development.

    • Reduced Waste for Landfills: By diverting garbage from landfills, composting eases the load on these already overloaded facilities.

    • Reduce Methane Emissions: Methane, a strong greenhouse gas, is produced by organic debris in landfills. By lowering these emissions, composting helps to combat climate change.

    • Compost is able to be used as an organic fertilizer in agriculture, eliminating the need for artificial chemical fertilizers.
