A Note About Compostable vs. Home Compostable
There is a difference - this floss is compostable. In order to compost, PLA products require high heat, sufficient moisture and time to completely break down into carbon dioxide, water and a small amount of humus, a soil nutrient.
Our floss is nice and thin and may require less time than a coffee cup or piece of cutlery made from PLA, but it will still need certain conditions which may or may not be achieved in home compost. It may be the case that it will break apart into smaller pieces but may not fully compost under home compostable conditions.
