How Commercial Composting Works!

Video by fellow New Plastics Economy participants Novamont, PepsiCo, and Unilever does a really great job of explaining how commercial composting works, the high standards/testing that goes into certifying products as compostable, and how littering is not composting. Take a look!

PepsiCo notes:  PepsiCo is working to make our packaging 100% recyclable, compostable, or biodegradable by 2025. So, what is compostable packaging? How is it composted? And why is it good for the environment? This short video gives an overview of the environmental benefits of compostable packaging, the labeling and certification systems, and proper disposal practices. This video was created in collaboration by PepsiCo, Milan Urban Food Policy Pact, Novamont, Seattle Public Utilities, Amsa, NFL, and Unilever.
