We understand there are many terminologies that make you confused in your purchase decision. Therefore, Greeny Bee is here to break it down for you 3 most “popular” terms:
– Bio – degradable: Biodegradable material will break down by itself quickly rather than taking years. It leaves nothing harmful behind and saves landfill space.
– Compostable: These materials will break down into nutrients for soil under certain level of moisture, temperature and microorganism. There are 2 level: Home Compost (Outdoor temperature and moisture) and Commercial Compost (Higher temperature). Without the right conditions, it won’t compost.
– OXO – degradable: referred as “degradable plastic” contain a mixture of plastic and addictive to make it break down into small piece. However, the plastic stay the same for hundred years just like the regular plastic which make it no difference from the regular plastic.
Our product range falls in Bio – degradable category and fits with current situation in Vietnam where waste categorization and commercial composting is not popular.
