Vegware's entire range is compostable.
But don't just take our word for it. We hold compostability certification for our entire range. The following bodies have independently certified that our products can break down in under 12 weeks:
The most widely used compostability standards are the European EN13432 and the American ASTMD 6400. They are largely equivalent, and include the following elements:
1. Biodegradation - materials turn to soil through microbial action at the same rate as cellulose (paper)
2. Disintegration - the materials fall into small pieces
3. Eco-toxicity - seeds can germinate in the resulting compost - ie it is useful for plant growth
4. Heavy metals - the compost is safe to go onto land
Vegware holds certification from these independent bodies

Vegware is committed to supplying genuine compostable packaging and disposables, and has an active programme ensure our products are compliant with these standards. As well as holding this certification, we also run trials to ensure that our products break down successfully and can be included in commercial food waste recycling. We are happy to email you a copy of our certification, or discuss how to best divert our packaging from landfill.
