Compost DECOSAFE natural fabrics

If you manufacture curtains, upholstery, cushions, etc., you produce for sure a considerable amount of textile waste in your business.

Hopefully, most of you are taking that textile waste to get recycled in recycled centers in your areas.

Now, if you use Decosafe® fabrics, you can give it for compost too.

Many recycle centers have a compost section, but they require 100% compostable products to be separated from what goes into recycling.

Another option is to compost them yourself, and then you can sell it or use it for your own garden, if you wish. Here the 3 basic steps to compost DECOSAFE® fabrics:

  1. You must shred them: first make smaller pieces, you can cut things into little squares or just rip them into strands.
  2. Please remove anything that won’t biodegrade: This includes any plastics, tags, metals, etc…
  3. And you can use a hot compost for faster results: Ok, that involves a little dedication, but consider hot composting as the “next level”. Hot composting can break down matter in only 18 days.

Of course, you can label Decosafe® fabrics as completely biodegradable, so your clients can also compost Decosafe fabrics themselves.
