Did you know? Our 5000 resin series is also featured on the U.S. Department of Agriculture Biopreferred Program list. This series is also biobased and features strong and flexible characteristics that are great to produce compostable straws and lids. That way, you are still getting your simple pleasures of life, tasty drinks on the go, while reducing your carbon footprint.Fun fact: the fourth Friday of February is #SkipTheStrawDay. The Coral Keepers encourage people to use alternatives to straws made of traditional plastic that sit in a landfill and injure wildlife. A great alternative is using a compostable straw once discarded at an industrial compost facility, which will seamlessly break down and return to the soil. Want to know more?

The US Composting Council (USCC)

Established in 1990, the US Composting Council (USCC) is the only national organization in the United States dedicated to the development, expansion and promotion of the composting industry. The USCC achieves this mission by encouraging, supporting and performing compost related research, promoting best management practices, establishing standards, educating professionals and the public about the benefits of composting and compost utilization, enhancing compost product quality, and developing training materials for compost manufacturers and markets for compost products. USCC members include compost manufacturers, compost marketers, equipment manufacturers, product suppliers, academic institutions, public agencies, nonprofit groups and consulting/engineering firms. The USCC offers excellent composting resources, tips, and more for businesses and individuals.

The Biodegradable Products Institute

BPI was formed as a nonprofit in 1999 with the mission to promote the production, use and appropriate end of lives for materials and products that are designed to fully biodegrade in specific biologically active environments, such as industrial composting.

  • A certification based on scientific standards was needed to help to identify products that were truly compostable, with verifiable claims
  • The certification scheme was based on ASTM test methods and specifications, similar to European specifications being used
  • The certification was launched in conjunction with the USCC, referencing its “Compost Facility Operating Guide” from 1994/1997 and had the USCC name on the logo
