Rootree™ is serious about sustainability.That's why we are pushing the limits and leading the industry toward an environmentally conscious future. We use a proprietary combination that includes bio-based, renewable, and non-GMO materials to create environmentally friendly packaging that you can be proud of.
Compostable vs. Biodegradable
This packaging will perform at its best when used within 6 months of delivery from Rootree. It is best stored between 60-75 F at 30-50% relative humidity. We recommend avoiding direct sunlight, high humidity, freezing cold, dry ice, and other extreme conditions.
At this time, you can’t place this product in your green bin - because this pouch looks so much like traditional flexible pouches, composting centres can’t tell the difference and this will get sorted out and sent to the landfill! However, recent legislative activity shows promise in the future of compostable packaging thanks to the implementation of standard practices across the industry.
REMEMBER: If you don’t see our compostable logo, it’s not an RT | Compostable™ product.

While we wish that we had a perfect product and perfect answers, the truth is that there is a lot of grey area within the subject of compostable packaging.
We may not have all of the answers, but we certainly have a lot of them. In fact, we’ve developed a whole page dedicated to clarifying a lot of questions you may have about this product.
“What happens if I put this in my municipal green bin?”
“Why does this material feel different than my conventional packaging?”
“Will this package still compost if it goes to the landfill?”
