Biodegradable products break down within a 90 day period but how long does it take for non-compostable items to break down?
Increasing waste volume is a major concern for mankind.
The best way to deal with this problem is to avoid products that generate waste materials that take more than a year to decompose in landfills. It’s up to you to make the decision to source the products you use in alternative more biodegradable or reusable and recyclable packaging .
