With the rapid innovation of products and packaging in the marketplace, there is growing interest in alternatives to traditional plastics, including compostables. Despite this, there is also confusion around different types of materials (biodegradable, compostable, etc.), standards, types of infrastructure and why some municipalities are not accepting compostables. To answer these questions and identify paths forward, RCC will be hosting a webinar on compostables on August 24 with panelists from the Compost Council of Canada, BASF, and Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI.) We welcome various stakeholders, including manufacturers, retailers and restaurants, as compostables have implications throughout the entire supply chain.
