The Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI) is the leading North American certification for compostable products. Compostable means that a product can break down entirely into its natural organic elements within about 90 days without causing any harm to the environment. In order to get the BPI logo, the product is independently tested and verified according to scientifically based compostability standards. The BPI logo not only indicates if a product can be composted, but also under what conditions. For example, it will clearly state if the material can be composted at home or more commonly, at an industrial municipal facility, like our Seedling compostable kitchen wipes.
