compostable deli containers are made from NatureWorks Ingeo™, which is derived from plants grown in the USA. Our biodegradable deli containers meet the most stringent scientific requirements for biodegradability and compostability, and are ASTM D6400-99 certified for "compostable plastics". Even though they are as light and strong as plastic, they fully biodegrade when composted.
To distinguish our containers from plastic ones in municipal recycling/composting facilities, the phrases "Biocompostable" and "This cup is made from plants and is 100% compostable" are printed on the side. Some of the older stock has both sides printed without the logo.
Instead of using petroleum based plastics which create toxicity and environmental pollution, you can now use our compostable alternatives.
