Non compostable plastic cutlery
Always consider the environment, and where possible use compostable cutlery such as wooden, bamboo or plant-fibre cutlery. Beware of “compostable” or “biodegradable” plastic: it has the unfortunate habit of
1) not breaking down in a domestic compost, only under high heat treatment;
2) when industrially broken down, becomes a sticky resin that doesn’t do any soil any favours; and
3) cannot be plastics recycled at all. Like most plastics, in large same-type quantities, traditional plastic can be recycled like everything else…. if it’s clean.

We’re more than waste management
A staggering 9 million tonnes of plastic ends up in the world’s oceans each year, and land-based waste is the greatest polluter. This ocean debris affects about 700 marine species, some of which are now endangered.
To help turn the tide on plastic pollution, Wanless eco(logical) is investing in Australia’s oceans.
Waste management doesn’t have to be a burden to your business.
