Approved Compostable Products
When purchasing compostable forks, bowls, packaging, etc. look for certified compostable products, not biodegradable. These products meet the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) specifications for compostable plastic ASTM D6400-04 and compostable packaging ASTM D6868-03.
We recommend the company BioBag for compostable bags to line home containers and commercial totes.
