If you’re looking to use a green product to accomplish a specific goal, reference the glossary below to help you find the right type of item during your search:
Eco-Friendly Dinnerware Terms:
Biodegradable – A product is considered biodegradable if it can be naturally broken down by microorganisms, such as bacteria or fungi, over a period of time. This type of product is usually made from plant or animal resources.
Compostable – Items are considered compostable when they can decompose and decay into water, carbon dioxide, or nutrient-rich, reusable biomass, at the same rate as paper without releasing harmful toxins.
Degradable – These products are oil-based and cannot break down naturally like biodegradable items can. Rather, degradable products are broken down through chemical reactions in anaerobic environments. Their decomposition results in water, carbon dioxide, biomass, or trace elements.
Recyclable: – This simply means the product can be reused and made into something new and different after it’s discarded.
Renewable: – A product is renewable if it comes from a tree, plant, or other living organism that is capable of regenerating itself. The production of renewable materials will therefore not deplete the renewable resources they come from. These are also biodegradable.
