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 at a good price...good for the environment!
This is the first time I tried recycled eco-spoons, Just like any other plastic spoon but more environmental friendly. The spoons’ color is between beige and dark white. The texture of the spoon is little rough and matte, it’s very well made, so far we didn’t break any of them.
These Eco-Spoons are awesome. I love what they stand for. To me I believe they are stronger then other plastic spoons. One product I will continue to get.
Whoa Whoa Wait a climate saving minute. This product, "Repurpose COMPOSTABLES" are picnic/party silverware (I tried the ultra strong spoons) that are not plastic!! They are made of Plants so if you lose them on the way to the trashcan, they turn into__ compost in no more than a couple of years-NOT millions, I gotta tell my fam about these
I didnt think these ecologically correct spoons would really look and feel like a regular plastic spoon! I also thought they wouldn't hold up to long immersion in liquids. Well, you proved me wrong! Great product and great for the environment!
