Biodegradable simply means that disintegration will occur, without specifying an amount of time or what the end material may be. Technically, any material is biodegradable overtime and depends on the environment. Companies often use the term “biodegradable” to mislead consumers. It is illegal in the state of California to label a product as biodegradable without being substantiated by third-party testing.
Compostable materials must degrade at a certain rate into a nutrient-rich substance to be qualified. We consider “compostable” to be a legitimate way to measure and represent a product’s end-of-life impact on the environment.
Our compostable products are certified as compostable, not just biodegradable.
The available packaging made from compostable materials does not perform well enough to ensure your products make it home clean and safe.
We are committed to continuing our work innovating cost-effective compostable packaging that’s up to our performance standards. We hope to make all our packaging compostable soon.

Excellent product and price.
The forks worked perfect for an outdoor picnic in the woods. They were very sturdy and much stronger then expected. They didn't break and the pack was big enough for 5 of us
These forks are superior to any other disposable utensils in every way in my opinion. They are eco - friendly made with plant materials and they are very durable and strong. I absolutely love the fact that they are compostable so I feel like I'm doing my little part in not adding more plastic waste to our environment. I will be telling all my friends and family about this product.
I love that these are compostable and they are very strong/durable. They hold up well and I'd feel confident putting these out for a party/event!
We try really hard to not use disposable anything but sometimes convenience wins the battle against environmental consciousness. These are a great choice to help with that though! We were worried about quality ( will they be sturdy?) and we're so pleased to share that they indeed are great quality. Will definitely buy again!
