WĀKE Recycle Questions
Can I toss my WĀKE in my blue recycling bin?
Unfortunately not. Most recycling facilities don’t know what materials go into WĀKE, so they would likely send it to a landfill. We do know what’s inside, which is why we can repurpose WĀKE and make new things from it. Just mail it back, and we’ll do the rest.
Is WĀKE compostable? Biodegradable?
No, WĀKE is not compostable. It would need to disintegrate into natural elements in a compost environment to be considered compostable or biodegradable, which it does not. While it won’t disappear into the earth, it can be returned to its essential ingredients and repurposed into new products. We believe there’s more impact in reusing materials, creating a more closed production loop, than always starting with new materials.
