Lab Tests: Home Composting

Better for All Cups PASS Home Composting test December 2022.

We make Better for All cups with a bio-based material called PHBH. PHBH is a form of PHA, a second generation fermented biopolymer that is non-toxic and certified to fully and safely decompose in various environments including water and low or no oxygen settings like landfill and anaerobic composters.

To ensure that our cup meets the home composting standard, we submitted cup samples to an international lab referred by TUV and BPI, the international and U.S. based compostable certification bodies that monitor and set composting certification standards.

The progressive photo documentation above is the decomposition of a Better for All 16 oz cup in pure PHBH tested in the lab at room temperature. The test for home composting can last up to 26 weeks. The Better for All cup home compostable test was completed and passed in December 2022. Photos courtesy OWS.
