Vide e are now selling all their take-away coffees with compostable lids. My understanding of this, is that they are made from some kind of natural starch and if put into your compost pile, will degrade. As a little experiment I thought I’d put a couple of lids in a pot, cover with soil and leave to compost. Will check them in a few weeks and report back on the state of the lids.
In any case, I think this is a really positive step forward and if more plastics could be replaced by this product, it would result in a lot less waste being produced.
