We’re celebrating #InternationalCompostAwarenessWeek
It’s probably not a big surprise that we love talking about compost. It’s an important resource, returning nutrients to the soil, fortifying plant growth and diverting organic waste from landfill. It’s why we’ve ensured all of our packaging is certified compostable and designed to be recycled with food waste – meaning it continues to be useful even after use.
And it’s not just good for the environment. Due to increasing landfill tax, businesses are increasingly turning to composting solutions for their food waste as a means of saving money.
#InternationalCompostAwarenessWeek aims to showcase the importance of compost and demonstrate it in action. Vegware and the Food Waste Network will be celebrating on Twitter all week with a range of films, infographics and composting facts.

We recently won the Queen’s Award for our innovative services in helping our customers recycle used Vegware with their food waste with our Food Waste Network. Through using our compostable packaging and expert recycling support, the University of Cambridge composts 1.5 tonnes of used Vegware each month.
