"Going Green Environmentally and Going Green Financially"
COMPOSTABLE vs. BIODEGRADABLE
Biodegradable refers to the ability of things to get disintegrated (decomposed) by the action of microorganisms such as bacteria or fungi biological (with or without oxygen) while getting assimilated into the natural environment. Compostable products are great for the environment.
The primary difference between compostable and biodegradable is that compostable products require a specific setting in order to break down, whereas biodegradable products break down naturally. Typically composting is a faster process, but only under the right conditions. Both of these kinds of products are better for the environment than plastic products that can take hundreds of years to disintegrate.
RECYCLABLE VS. REUSABLE
Recycling is the method used to convert the waste materials into products which can be reused. The common waste materials which have the potential to be reused can be recycled as raw materials, can reduce energy consumption, reduce pollution, reduce further pollution of water and landfills; reducing the need for waste disposal.
Reusable is a word you'll often see alongside words like recyclable, renewable, or sustainable.
Reusing is the act of taking old items that you might consider throwing away and finding a new use for them.
