We are super excited to have compostable containers for our arugula and lettuce mix. The new packaging is from Good Natured, made of plant based materials, and can be composted at home! They will take 12-24 months to completely break down, likely longer than everything else in your pile, so think about bringing them to a commercial composting facility like Eko Compost here in Missoula. We’re psyched to be offering reusable AND compostable packaging for our greens. You may notice a price increase in our products at your local grocery or at market and this is why. BUT we believe that these new containers will keep our produce fresher for longer and less damaged on their way to your fridge in addition to reducing our reliance on plastic products.
There’s tons of information about compostable vs biodegradable and more on the World Centric website (who are AWESOME), and if you have any questions, comments, or feedback, please get in touch!
