Get the dirt on turning waste back into dirt.
Wipe up your compostable mess. There, that’s better.
Place your compostable wipes in the compost bin.
Your compostable wipes take a trip to the municipal facility if available in your area.
It’s placed in large piles with other organic materials.
Over a 45- to 90-day period, your compostable wipes will break down into CO2 and biomass.
After breaking down, the compost is sold or donated.
Make sure to line the compost bin with wood chips, saw dust or other brown materials (details below about that).
Bacteria and fungi release heat. 120 to 150 degrees Fahrenheit is the ideal temp for happy compost.
Keep compost moist to help with the breakdown. To learn how to “squeeze” your compost, check out the EPA website.
Use a mixture of 75% browns (like our compostable wipes) and 25% greens to achieve a good carbon to nitrogen ratio.
Greens are items like coffee grounds, fruits and vegetables, grass cuttings, etc.
Browns are items like wood chips, dry leaves, sawdust, our compostable wipes, etc.
Compostable wipes are just a part of the efforts that The Clorox Company is taking to reduce our impact on the planet.
This is the beginning of something great.
