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.

"I can’t tell you how much we appreciate this plate and all your products. We have shared our experiences with two of our neighbors. They love the squares! Thanks for developing these."
Got these just in time for Sunday football games and they were perfect! Loaded these plates with tons of BBQ and they didn't seep through. Highly recommend these for any occasion!
Dishes at the end of a long day are the enemy, so these plates have come in super handy! They fit a big meal and haven’t had a leak yet. Definitely a new staple at my house!
Game nights at our place just got even better now that I don't need to do the dishes or deal with dirty dishes in general. Typically disposables are not this durable, ESPECIALLY compostable too. Great buy!!!
We used these plates for our Labor Day gathering and was so happy to have fewer dishes with no guilt! Not to mention they were sturdy and didn't immediately collapse upon contact with juicy foods like I've found other compostable plates do.
Game changer with a house full of kids. So happy with the product and love the sustainable element.
