How do I compost my delivery box?

At ciklo we ship your orders using compostable cardboard and paper.

Composting a compostable delivery box is a great way to reduce waste and nourish your soil with organic materials. Here are some steps to properly compost a compostable delivery box:

  1. Checking compostability : Make sure the cardboard is actually compostable. Look for compostability symbols or check the information provided by the manufacturer.

  2. Preparing the cardboard : Tear the cardboard into smaller pieces. The more the cardboard is shredded, the faster it will decompose. Be sure to remove any non-compostable tape or labels.

  3. Adding brown material : Cardboard is considered brown material in the composting process. Alternate layers of shredded cardboard with other carbon-rich materials, such as dead leaves, straw or branches.

  4. Balance with green material : To encourage decomposition, also add materials rich in nitrogen, such as kitchen scraps, yard waste, or manure. Make sure you balance brown and green materials for a balanced compost.

  5. Humidification : The cardboard should be moistened, but not soggy. Spray the cardboard layers with water as you add them to the compost pile to maintain the moisture needed for decomposition.

  6. Aeration : Stir the compost pile regularly to promote air circulation and speed up the decomposition process. You can use a fork or shovel to turn the compost.

  7. Composting Time : The time it takes to completely break down cardboard depends on many factors, including piece size, ambient temperature, and material balance. In general, allow several months to obtain mature, usable compost in your garden.

By following these steps, you can effectively transform your compostable delivery box into rich, nutritious compost for your plants.
