BPI certified

Determined by the Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI) to be composed of polymers that are completely biodegradable in approved composting facilities, and that meet the requirements defined by ASTM D6400 or ASTM D6868; these standards identify three key criteria for a product to be certified as compostable: Under a managed composting program it must 1) break down to carbon dioxide, water, inorganic compounds, and biomass at a rate consistent with paper, 2) decompose so that the plastic is not visually distinguishable, and 3) leave no toxic residue. (Also see ASTM.)
