Compostable vs. Recyclable
When fans purchase food at an event, the resulting waste—cups, containers, utensils and napkins—is contaminated with food scraps and residue. Once contaminated, even recyclable petroleum plastics and mixed media packaging must go to landfill. Compostable dishware, properly vetted by local composting partners, enables venues to radically increase the number of food scraps and food related dishware diverted from landfill to organics recycling, where it can all be transformed into soil amendments and landscaping materials.
Compostable is the best option for venue food service items, but not all compostables are made equal.
The Better for All PHBH cup is the best limited-use plastic alternative available at scale today.
”Through an aggressive (composting and recycling) program that included switching to compostable serviceware and packaging, the Seattle Mariners were able to improve their game-day waste diversion from 38 percent in 2009 to 90 percent today. ...This 90 percent diversion rate is saving Safeco field $100,000 per year.NRDC Game Changers, 2015
