Is your bioplastic compostable and biodegradable?
Most materials, including traditional plastic, are biodegradable - question is just how long it takes. Some plastic take up to 1,000 years where a banana leaf takes up to 2 weeks. Biodegradation is a naturally-occurring breakdown of materials by microorganisms such as bacteria and fungi or other biological activity. However, composting is a human-driven process in which biodegradation occurs under a specific set of circumstances (Source: Wikipedia). The bioplastic we are using biodegrades, without any human interference, within 6 to 9 months. Additionally, you can add it to your composting facility where the break down process happens faster.
