From Coffee to Compost

From Coffee to Compost

Hello coffee lovers! Are you looking for a new way to enjoy your favorite brew while also being environmentally conscious? Look no further than That Day Company's compostable bags and labels. Our bags and labels are not only good for the environment, but they're also versatile and reusable. In this blog post, we'll dive deeper into the benefits of compostable bags and labels, as well as give you some creative ideas on how to reuse them.

What Does Compostable Mean?

When we say our bags and labels are compostable, it means that they can break down naturally into organic matter without causing harm to the environment. This is a big deal because traditional plastic bags and labels can take hundreds of years to decompose, leaving behind harmful chemicals and pollutants. Compostable bags and labels, on the other hand, break down in a matter of months and leave behind no harmful residue.

Versatile and Reusable

Our compostable bags are not only good for the environment, but they're also versatile and reusable. In fact, we've come up with five different ways you can reuse our bags before composting them. Here are some ideas:

  1. Use them as storage bags for non-food items like jewelry, craft supplies, or small toys.
  2. Cut them up and use them as plant ties in your garden.
  3. Use them as a liner for your trash can.
  4. Cut them up and use them as packing material when shipping items.
  5. Use them as a cover for your outdoor plants during a frost.

    1. Use them as a liner for your planters to help retain moisture.
