These compostable utensils are made from 100% non-GMO
plant starch PLA resin. These biodegradable utensils will completely compost in a commercial composting facility within 90-180 days. Home composting is not advised for this compostable cutlery, as they do require a higher heat to break down, which may not occur in most home composting systems.
Please note, that there is a difference between compostability and biodegradability as noted on our main bioplastics page. Compostability in addition to biodegradation mandates no ecotoxicity and more than 90% disintegration into pieces less than 2mm within 180 days, according to the ASTM definition of compostability.
