Do compostable products break down when put into the soil, water, left outside, or stored on shelves?

<p>Our compostable products are made from sugarcane and Ingeo, both of which break down best in commercial compost facilities only. Soil and water are relatively cold environments that do not allow Ingeo to become biodegradable and break down. The compost process itself starts the biodegradation for Ingeo itself. Paper and bagasse also compost best in this scenario. </p>
<p>Retail shelves similarly do not provide an environment with the right composting conditions for these products to break down, so these maintain their integrity until they interact with composting microorganisms.
