Composting is good for the earth.

Compost is organic material resulting from the decomposition of organic wastes and compostable materials. As the materials break down, microorganisms produce a rich substance called humus, a major component of compost. It’s a full-circle process, where the compostable materials return to the soil, fertilizing it and helping grow healthy plants.

Our products are certified as compostable by the Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI), which is the current standard in the United States for composting. BPI and the US Composting Council use the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) specifications to certify products as compostable.

In the Pacific Northwest, Cedar Grove Composting offers a technical review and testing program to determine whether products will compost in a commercial compost facility. Our products meet Cedar Grove requirements. You can feel great about using them, knowing that they are good for the earth.
