Characteristics of Compostable Materials

World Centric products are made from materials that follow the cycle of life on Earth: beginning and ending as nutrient-rich soil. Our products are made from a variety of compostable materials, which currently include: compostable PLA plastic made from cornstarch, wheat straw, and sustainable paper alternatives. Each of these compostable materials carries a unique set of benefits and limitations, and they all compost at different rates under different conditions.
