The symbol is designed for use on products and packages. It is designed to allow consumers, composters, waste haulers and officials easily distinguish those plastic products designed to biodegrade quickly, completely and safely, when composted in well-run municipal and commercial facilities. No plastic residues will be left behind to destroy the value of the finished compost. Products are tested in approved, independent laboratories. BPI's scientists check the data to verify that the products meet requirements in ASTM Specifications D6400 or D6868. The ASTM Specifications used by the BPI resulted from eight years of intensive work by leading scientists, resin producers and the composting industry. Passing these specifications mean that a product will biodegrade completely, quickly and safely-just like yard trimmings and food scraps. ASTM D6400 is designed to cover plastic films and bags. ASTM D6868 is for packaging that is designed to be composted, including plastic coated paper and board.
