As Earth Day approaches, we at Nava Bands are proud to continue our longstanding commitment to sustainability. Since 2019, we have been dedicated to reducing our environmental footprint and promoting eco-friendly practices. This Earth Day, we're excited to share our journey and the steps we're taking to make a positive impact on the planet.

Understanding Biodegradability

Firstly, what does "biodegradable" mean? Biodegradable materials are those that can naturally decompose over time, breaking down into smaller, harmless components that can be absorbed back into the environment. This is in contrast to non-biodegradable materials, which can persist in the environment for centuries, contributing to pollution and ecological damage.

The Benefits of Biodegradable Bags

Switching to biodegradable bags is a positive step for several reasons. Firstly, these bags reduce our reliance on plastics, which are a major source of pollution in oceans and landfills. By using biodegradable materials, we help mitigate this pollution and lessen our carbon footprint.

Secondly, biodegradable bags are compostable. This means that under the right conditions, such as in a composting facility or a home composting system, these bags can break down into organic matter that enriches the soil. Composting not only reduces waste sent to landfills but also creates nutrient-rich soil for gardening and agriculture.

How to Compost Biodegradable Bags

Composting biodegradable bags is a straightforward process. Here are the basic steps:
  1. Collect Organic Waste: Gather fruit and vegetable scraps, coffee grounds, eggshells, and other organic waste.
  2. Add Biodegradable Bags: Place your biodegradable bags containing organic waste into your compost bin or pile.
  3. Turn and Monitor: Regularly turn the compost pile to aerate it and ensure proper decomposition. Monitor moisture levels and adjust as needed.
  4. Use Compost: After several weeks to months, depending on conditions, your compost will be ready to use in gardens or potted plants.

At Nava Bands, sustainability is at the core of our values. That's why we're excited to announce that by Q3, we will be transitioning to 100% biodegradable packaging for all our products.
