Eco-Products will work with Compost Manufacturing Alliance (CMA) to test all compostable products and begin using the ‘composter approved’ logo.
Eco-Products manufactures compostable foodservice packaging which is made from either plant-based plastic or fibers.
The CMA program aims to help composters better understand the composability of each product and provides access to a ‘Compost Approved’ logo, which will cover all of Eco-Products’ compostable plates, cups, bowls, containers and utensils.
Sarah Martinez, director of marketing at Eco-Products, said “With greater numbers of stadiums, restaurants and other venues seeking to increase their waste diversion by composting food scraps and packaging, it’s important to us that composters have confidence that our products perform in their compost operations.
“Whether the composter operates windrows, an aerated-static pile system or other technology, this specific CMA logo will demonstrate that our packaging is ‘composter approved’ to work in their operation.
“It is our hope that more composters will then see the value in accepting packaging as a feedstock, thus expanding access to commercial composting across the country.”
CMA’s new program has already been tested on over 500 products.Eco-Products, a Novolex brand and Certified B Corporation, is a brand of foodservice packaging made from renewable and recycled resources
