Why compost is key to cutting emissions in US

Gary Robinson, Director of Public Affairs at TIPA describes the need for compost in the US; “It’s a major step toward a greener nation, but to succeed it will not only need the support of our politicians and people; it will need a change in the way we package our food, too. By switching to compostable packaging, people are encouraged to separate their food waste. With compostable packaging, you don’t have to get your hands dirty separating old food from its plastic packaging to ensure it goes in your food waste bin; you can simply dispose of the packaging alongside the food.”

TIPA’s compostable zipper bags perform like conventional plastic but can be disposed of using existing composting infrastructure including home compost bins, leaving no waste behind.
