BIODEGRADABLE

KODIAKOTTON® Natural Fiber Pads are biodegradable and compostable as tested by an independent third-party laboratory using ASTM test standards.

Sometimes recycling is complicated and inconvenient.

With natural fiber insulation, you don’t have to feel guilty throwing away the packaging. Our liners fully biodegrade in 27 weeks.

BIO STUDY

Have more questions about this study? Click here to request the full report.

Our Natural Fiber Insulated Liners are made primarily of cotton. According to a study on cotton’s biodegradability, cotton biodegrades much faster than synthetic fibers because it is made of cellulose (natural, plant-based fibers).

Simply put, because cotton is a plant, it follows a normal cycle of nature. It will naturally go back to the soil from which it was made. So if recycling isn’t an option for you, go ahead and throw the liners away, or better yet, compost them!
