Compostability in addition to biodegradation mandates no eco toxicity and more than 90% disintegration into pieces less than 2mm within 180 days, according to the ASTM definition of compostability.

Most current utensils on the market made from plant starch are NOT compostable. Current technology does not allow for manufacturing plant starch utensils without adding some plastic fillers.
These are normally priced cheaper and do not meet compostability standards. Please be aware that these plant starch utensils are not compostable or biodegradable.
These utensils will take 120+ days to compost in a commercial composting facility. Home composting is not recommended and it may take 1-2 yrs to compost in a home composting system.
Q: What is PLA?
A: Polylactic acid or polylactide (PLA) is a biodegradable, thermoplastic, aliphatic polyester derived from renewable resources, such as corn starch (in the U.S.) or sugarcanes (rest of world). Although PLA has been known for more than a century, it has only been of commercial interest in recent years, in light of its biodegradability.
