Home Compostable Range
The brand manufactures or sells products or packaging that are home compostable, meaning these materials will compost into soil at lower temperatures. Therefore these products or packaging are suitable for the compost heap at people’s homes.
- Substantial percentage ( 51%+) of a brand's packaging or products must meet the home compostable criteria.
- Home compostable materials undergo 90% degradation after 12 months at ambient temperature, in the presence of microorganisms and oxygen, in a domestic composting unit (excludes hot compost units and processes).
Certification or documentation from a relevant organisation to demonstrate compliance with the above standard. E.g. OK compost HOME; Europe: prEN 17427 (2020) - Packaging.
