If I don’t need my case, can I just throw it in the garbage? Won’t it just break down eventually?
Unfortunately this is not likely as garbages and landfills do not give bioplastics or compostable materials all the elements it will need to breakdown. Most landfills are packed so heavily that it actually entombs waste, depriving it of sunlight, oxygen and moisture and creating harmful methane emissions.
Please read our article on what you should know about compostable plastics.
We also have a Pela Cycle program where you can send us your old Pela Cases and we can recycle them to make another generation of Pela products! To get the process started, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject "Pela Cycle"!
