Description

Adhesive bandages are single-use objects. They are meant to be thrown away, but unfortunately, they are unlikely to decompose within your lifetime because most are made from plastic. Plus if there is a stray one lying around, nobody wants to pick it up, so it will stay littered on the ground. There is also the issue that a variety of chemicals are used to create and go into adhesive bandages.

Luckily, with advances in technology, there are now compostable bandages. If they miss the compost pile, you do not have to worry too much about it. What a relief!

Tips

• Your best bet to buy compostable bandages is likely online. A quick search will give you a sense of the options.

• You can also use wrappable bandages, which can be washed and reused! However, these generally are not as practical for smaller usage cases.
