Mama Love is within the strategy of transferring in the direction of all recyclable or compostable packaging. None of that is good however each step helps!
As of Sept 2022:
I’m phasing out and infrequently use bubble wrap however would relatively use what I’ve left than throw it away. It’s product of 30% recycled content material. Please re-use it in case you can. It can’t be recycled at house however could be dropped at recycling bins supplied by grocery shops for recycling their plastic luggage.
I can be switching to tin tie luggage with biodegradable meals liners after I exploit up those I’ve. My present luggage are product of recycled paper however the lining used for meals security isn’t biodegradable.
Glassine luggage that I exploit for small samples and seeds (coming quickly!) are totally recyclable with different paper. Transport packing containers and the paper or corrugated wrapping paper inside are as nicely.
I don’t purchase packing peanuts however do re-use peanuts utilized by the businesses that provide my bottles. They’ve switched to cornstarch or rice peanuts that biodegrade with water virtually immediately. You’ll be able to put them in your compost, put them within the rubbish the place they may biodegrade within the landfill, or break them down with water at house and wash them down the sink or use to water your vegetation.
I can be shifting to recycled paper padded mailers sooner or later. The delivery envelopes l at the moment use labeled “compostable” take about 80 days to decompose. The bubble wrap inside is constituted of biodegradable plastic and cornstarch; nonetheless, though they’re 100% biodegradable, they don’t seem to be totally recyclable.
And, after all, the glass bottles I exploit are reusable or recyclable. Simply keep in mind to take the labels off! I soak mine in sizzling soapy water for awhile and that appears to assist. I can’t discover details about whether or not the spray tops or caps are recyclable.
