What is Compostable Plastic?

Our cases are made from plant sources, such as bamboo fibre and wheat straw, and compostable plastic. But what is compostable plastic?

Just like its non-compostable counterpart, compostable plastic is durable and long-lasting. That’s where the similarities end. While 91% of plastic ends up in landfills (that’s right: only 9% of non-compostable plastic actually gets recycled), compostable plastic will break down into useful soil within 3 to 6 months when placed in the right environment. This can be your backyard compost or a municipal recycling facility.

If you don’t have access to a compost facility, contact us at hello@shopfutureproof.com and we’ll be happy to take back your phone case and ensure it is returned to the earth properly.
