Camino turns more responsible than ever with its all new approach of introducing sustainable biodegradable wood pulp wrappers for food item such as chocolate. The new biodegradable and compostable packaging is now found in Camino’s classic 100 g chocolate bars (the 12 flavours made in Switzerland) *inner wrappers are now biodegradable and compostable! The inner wrappers are made of wood pulp and are biodegradable/compostable.
All outer wrappers are made of recyclable material, printed with vegetable-based inks on acid-free paper and certified by the Forest Certification Council (FSC).
Disposing the new biodegradable and compostable inner wrapper-
Compost bin – place the inner wrapper in your compost collection bins to be picked up by your city composting program.
Home composting – dispose of the inner wrapper in your backyard or home composter (please note this will take longer to degrade).
Garbage – as a last resort, if no access to a compost facility or a home composter, please dispose of our inner wrapper in the garbage. This option should be your last resort as waste does not easily biodegrade in landfills as there is too little light, oxygen and water to allow this process.
No recycling – even though it looks shiny and silver, it is not to be put in the inner wrapper into recycling! It is made of biodegradable and not recyclable material, so it will not work in the regular recycling process. However, the outer wrapper is still recyclable.
A last reminder: the inner wrappers of our four Camino bars made in Italy, are made of aluminum and are recyclable.
