Using golf tees that break down in water and soil in a harmless and non-toxic way will reduce the amount of plastic going into our oceans and environment. Just being biodegradable isn’t enough. Biodegradable materials often still contain plastic and they then deposit that plastic wherever the products wind up after use. They are neither recyclable nor compostable. They just contaminate.
While recycling is a good solution when perfect, we all know that most recyclable plastic does not get into the recycling loop and winds up as waste in the environment. For this reason, we think it is best to create compostable products. Then we can feel confident that whether they make it into an industrial compost facility or they are lost to the environment, they will not be harmful and may actually be beneficial.
