Consumers: you have the power to make things happen​

According to a study published by the French Energy Transition Agency in 2018, the protection of flora and fauna is one of the main environmental concerns of the French population. This subject has never been more in the public eye since 2001. Yet,

70%

of French people claim to be unsure about what they can or cannot put in the various sorting bins.

Moreover, by 2024*, biowaste sorting will become compulsory.  Carbiolice is already raising awareness about the importance of sorting biowaste and has invented revolutionary technology that makes plant-based plastics (PLA) 100% compostable. Coffee grounds, yoghurt cups and apple cores will end up in the same bin! ​

Questions & Answers

How can I be sure that my wrapping can go in my backyard composter?

Simply read the logo on your packaging.  It should state that the plastic is compostable at home. If the word industrial composting appears somewhere, it means that your packaging is only compostable in industrial facilities. It will then have to be placed in the bio-waste bin collected by your local authority, provided that they do so, in any case, this system will be general practice in Europe by the end of 2023.​

Have you spotted the Evanesto® Inside logo?

No doubt about it! Your packaging can be composted in your own backyard composter!​

Will Evanesto® change the taste of my coffee?

Not at all! Evanesto® is inactive throughout the product’s life and is only activated when the product is composted. Therefore, the presence of Evanesto® in food product packaging, for example, will not affect the shelf life or the taste. Tests in independent laboratories guarantee that Evanesto can be used for packaging or containers with food contact.

Do I have to clean my yoghurt pot before putting it in my compost bin?

No, you don’t need to waste water by rinsing your yoghurt pot! Just throw it on the compost heap! However, do remember to cover it with wet and then dry materials like the rest of your bio-waste. It

will only be able to biodegrade properly if the composting conditions are right.

My fruit and vegetable plastic bag has been in my compost bin for two days and I can still see it. Is this normal?

Yes, it is completely normal! Plastic with Evanesto® inside takes about 6 months to disintegrate and 12 months to biodegrade completely with all your bio-waste at ambient temperature. It takes patience and above all, you need to take good care of your compost bin: aerate it, water it in the summer, make sure it is not in a place that is too shady or sunny! Also remember to open your fruit and vegetable bag to facilitate its disintegration. To find out more, check out our blog section dedicated to composting and bio-plastic! ​

Why not, contact a master composter or an association near your house for advice!​

Once my tray is composted, will pieces of plastic end up in the middle of my vegetable patch?

Compostable plastics are generally bio-sourced and biodegradable. This means that they are made from natural ingredients such as corn or sugar cane, and that they can biodegrade and turn into compost (water, CO2 and humus) in less than 12 months. The certification of products with Evanesto® inside guarantees complete biodegradation, with no residues or impact on the environment and the quality of the compost. ​
