The Biodegradable Products Institute is the current standard in U.S. for composting. BPI and the US Composting Council uses the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) specifications to certify products as compostable. It addition all of our products are certified for food safety with the FDA.
HOW TESTING WORKS
We test all our PrintMyCup.com products and put the BPI logo on them so it is easier for you and your commercial compost facility to identify compostable items
PrintMyCup.com items fall into two ASTM Categories: ASTM D6400 and ASTM D6868
|ASTM D6400||ASTM D6868|
|This specification applies to products made from plastics that are designed to be composted in commercial composting facilities.||This specification covers laminated paper, Plant Starch, and sugarcane (bagasse) items that are designed to be composted in commercial composting facilities.|
WHAT DOES THIS ALL MEAN?
PrintMyCup.com makes sure that our compostable products actually compost like we promise.
This all means that if a product claims to be compostable or biodegradable, but does not have a BPI certification, it may not actually be compostable in a commercial facility.
