Terms for environmentally friendly tableware:
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 sources.
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.
Biodegradable - These products are oil-based and do not decompose naturally like biodegradable items. In contrast, biodegradable products are broken down by chemical reactions in an anaerobic environment.Their decomposition produces water, carbon dioxide, biomass or trace elements.
Recyclable - this simply means that the product can be reused and made into something new and different after being thrown away.
Renewable - The product is renewable if it comes from trees, plants or other organisms that can regenerate themselves. As a result, renewable materials are produced without depleting the renewable resources from which they come. These are also biodegradable.
