biodegradable & compostable
terminology according to nest
Biodegradable and compostable are terms used when describing organic materials breaking down in a specific environment. Both terms are often used when defining environmentally friendly products. The term biodegradable is very often misused in marketing and advertising of products and materials that are not actually environmentally friendly. (The State of California outlawed the use of the terms “biodegradable,” “degradable,” or “decomposable,” or any form of those terms because of all the abuse and green-washing. This is why Nest Diapers only uses the term “Compostable” when describing, marketing, and labeling our products. Our diapers are made using mostly plant based materials, the other materials are primarily petroleum-based.
The definition of biodegradable is the material is capable of undergoing biological anaerobic or aerobic degradation leading to the production of CO2, H2O, methane, biomass, and mineral salts, depending on the environmental conditions. An important role in biodegradation is played by microorganisms, which are present in the environment and furnished by organic waste.
Composting is the process of breaking down organic waste by microbial digestion to create compost. Compost has many beneficial uses including improving and fertilizing soil. To go through a composting process, organic waste requires the right level of heat, water, and oxygen. In a pile of organic waste, there are millions of tiny microbes that consume the waste, transforming the organic materials into compost. Nest Diapers have been tested in accordance of test method ISO 14855-1-2012 in order to claim that a product is compostable.
Warning: Please do not dispose of Nest Diapers in your home compost pile. Nest Diapers need to be properly commercially composted to degrade.
