  • Biodegradable
    A "biodegradable" product has the ability to break down, safely and relatively
    quickly, by biological means, into the raw materials of nature and disappear into
    the environment. These products can be solids biodegrading into the soil (which
    we also refer to as compostable), or liquids biodegrading into water.
    Biodegradable plastic is intended to break up when exposed to microorganisms (a
    natural ingredient such as cornstarch or vegetable oil is added to achieve this
    result).
Biodegradable matter is generally organic material such as plant and animal
matter and other substances originating from living organisms, or artificial
materials that are similar enough to plant and animal matter to be put to use
by microorganisms.
