What makes VerTerra products different?
VerTerra products are biodegradable. While many other products are advertised as compostable, these products are usually made from vegetable-derived materials. Those products will not break down in a backyard compost and require composting facilities, which are not available in every city. VerTerra's product line is biodegradable and certified compostable. Because their products are made of only leaves or wood and water, without bonding agents, lacquers, or chemicals, VerTerra products can break down in a backyard composter and return naturally to the environment.
Why choose compostable?
Plastic is one of the most common forms of debris found in the ocean. It negatively impacts marine animals and ecosystems. Additionally, research has shown that humans eat about a credit card's worth of plastic every week. Choosing non-plastic products is good for you and good for the environment.
