Composting food and yard waste completes a natural cycle of life. By diverting organics to composting facilities municipalities can reduce as much as 40% of the amount of trash going into landfills, incinerators or the oceans resulting in reduced greenhouse gases and the overall impact on the environment. Composting occurs everywhere around us. Plants grow and die, their nutrients are then made available again by returning to the soil.
WHAT IS BPI CERTIFICATION?
The Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI) is a professional association of key individuals and groups from government, industry and academia, which promotes the use, and recycling of biodegradable polymeric materials (via composting). The BPI is open to any materials and products that demonstrate (via scientifically proven techniques) that their products are completely biodegradable in approved composting facilities.
