What is PHA?
HumidiNaturals are designed with the earth in mind. Starting with our backyard compostable, bio-polymers, created from PHA (polyhydroxyalkanoate). PHAs are polyesters biosynthesized by a bacterium fed by inexpensive oils derived from the seeds of plants such as canola and soy.
Natural, Compostable, No Plastic
Designed to break down in 14-18+ months in your home-compost pile; PHAs break down naturally leaving behind no micro-plastic particulates or harmful chemicals. The process in which PHA breaks down is similar to cellulose or wood. When kept in an environment with limited bacterial and fungi activity, the material will last for a long time. If that material is discarded into the environment or compost bin, it will be consumed by microorganisms that feed off the material as a carbon food source.
HumidiNaturals break down and acts as a food source for naturally occurring bacteria, negating the harmful environmental impact of traditional plastic.
