Our packaging just got more compostable! We are replacing our plastic sauce cups with PLA (polylactic acid) made from corn. The PLA is compostable: it breaks down in 6-8 weeks in a consistently high-heat compost pile. This means home composting systems won’t compost the cups, but industrial compost does!
Composting in Eastern Mass.
Municipal Composting: Some towns and cities like Cambridge are now hauling compost to industrial compost systems. Other towns like Wellesley have composting available for drop-off at the town dump. Check with your town to see if either is available.
