If you don't want to or can't recycle it, use it in the garden as a weed barrier or mulch. The bag itself is made from bio-based materials. It will break down in a standard compost pile and can also go into your green waste curbside bin, as it complies with the ASTM D6400 standards used by municipal and industrial facilities.

Every purchase of Dried Mealworms contributes to research focusing on reducing plastic waste. We support organizations working to reduce the harmful effects of plastics on our environment. We pledge to give 1% of gross sales to certified non-profit organizations doing work to reduce plastic pollution in a variety of ways. We need to look at an "all of the above" approach to this problem that includes everything from finding alternative materials, to better recycling, to innovative methods to break down plastics back into organic materials, and more.
