Stickers are Cute But Not on Your Fruit

Creative Ways to Remember to Keep Produce Stickers Out of the Compost Bin

Produce stickers are our most frustrating contaminant. They do not break down in the compost pile and due to their small size are not filtered out in the screening process. We painstakingly hand pick produce stickers out of the finished compost, but due to their size and prevalence on produce it's impossible to get them all. Help us prevent this contaminant from getting in your compost in the first place.

Print one or all of these drawings and hang near your compost bin. Fill in with produce stickers for a fun way to remember to keep stickers out of the compost. Kids love this task.

Advocate for an Alternative to Plastic Produce Stickers

Produce stickers could become the next plastic straw as we move towards the elimination of single use plastics. Alternative solutions to plastic PLU stickers exist, such as laser printing SKU codes on produce or using certified compostable stickers, however composters like you and us need to demand the use of a solution that considers the end of use life of the product.
