What Do the Certified Compostable Logos Mean?
Certified Compostable Logos prove compostable products are what they claim to be.
It means they’ve undergone a stringent test regime to become certified home or industrially compostable to Australian and New Zealand standards. But it’s more than a logo, it’s a registered trademark owned by the Australasian Bioplastic Association (ABA) – a peak industry body dedicated to promoting compostable bioplastic materials that are made from renewable resources.
Other countries may have their own compostable certifications in place, like the OK Compostable Certification (authorised by European Bioplastics) and BPI Compostable Certification (North America). But in Australia, the ABA Certification is the only source of truth regarding a product’s compostability claims.
