Bio-based, biodegradable and compostable. These are terms you regularly hear these days when talking about sustainability and sustainable products. But what do they actually mean? When something is biodegradable, does it mean it is also compostable or biobased? And is it actually as sustainable as it seems? These are terms that get thrown around a lot, but we notice lots of people, consumer and business, do not know what it mean. That’s why we want to dig into these terms, their significance and   their sustainable values.
