the fabric question: does it compost?
There has been some confusion about fabric materials, and for this frequently asked question:: ?Can this blanket/pair of socks/pillow go into the compost cart?? the correct answer is: It all depends on the label. Only Purely Natural Fabrics: Any fabric that is wholly derived from natural materials can be composted, except when it has been blended with synthetic fabrics. Natural fabrics are: cotton, bamboo, hemp, or wool, etc. Otherwise remembered as ?any fabric made from a plant or animal?. However, these days most natural fabrics are blended so only if the label of the fabric has any of the following indicators on it, is it able to go into the green cart: 100% Cotton 100% Wool (merino, angora, alpaca, etc.) 100% Bamboo 100% Hemp or, anything labelled ?100% compostable? If the label includes any other materials or the label is missing, don?t compost it. When in doubt, leave it out!
