Biodegradable simply means that disintegration will occur, without specifying an amount of time or what the end material may be. Technically, any material is biodegradable overtime and depends on the environment. Companies often use the term “biodegradable” to mislead consumers. It is illegal in the state of California to label a product as biodegradable without being substantiated by third-party testing.
Compostable materials must degrade at a certain rate into a nutrient-rich substance to be qualified. We consider “compostable” to be a legitimate way to measure and represent a product’s end-of-life impact on the environment.
Our compostable products are certified as compostable, not just biodegradable.
The available packaging made from compostable materials does not perform well enough to ensure your products make it home clean and safe.
We are committed to continuing our work innovating cost-effective compostable packaging that’s up to our performance standards. We hope to make all our packaging compostable soon.

Feels good to be doing good
We've been buying the small bin compostable bags for years. Ideal for confidently and conveniently contributing to the recycle economy by making compost thoughtfully here in Austin. Now, Repurpose makes it easy via their subscription to include TP, trash bags and paper towels. While the Paper Towel roll appears small compared to a Bounty roll, I think Repurpose has a real edge in absorbency! Very pleased!
Loved getting this bundle subscription, it always came right on time!
Love this bundle.
It's the perfect amount for me. The toilet paper and paper towel are of soft material and the bags are super convenient to have around the home. I feel great doing my part for a greener world. Can't wait to restock and explore more products!
