What our compostable wrappers mean for the environment (and your garden)
Our new truffle twist wraps are made of cellulose, a principle structural material of plants, made from eucalyptus trees that are sustainably harvested from FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) managed forests. We make around 12.5 million truffles a year, which is about 8,000 pounds of bright truffle twist wrap. These truffle wraps are expected to compost in 6-8 weeks in your home compost pile. We love the idea of all those bright truffle wrappers filling your compost bin and growing among your flowers!
Why Composting Matters
- Diverting waste to a home compost can make a big impact on reducing your carbon footprint. Here are just a few ways:
Enriches soil, helping retain moisture and suppress plant diseases and pests.
Reduces the need for chemical fertilizers.
Encourages the production of beneficial bacteria and fungi that break down organic matter to create humus, a rich nutrient-filled material.
Reduces methane emissions from landfills and lowers your carbon footprint.
