Our new utensils are made from TPLA (70% non-GMO PLA and 30% talc.) They are also heat resistant up to 200 degrees F, and are certified under ASTM-6400 standards and now have BPI Certification. World Centric TPLA utensils are compostable and biodegradable, and will take 120+ days to compost in a commercial composting facility. Home composting is not recommended and it may take 1-2 yrs to compost in a home composting system. Most current utensils on the market made from plant starch are NOT compostable since current technology does not allow for manufacturing plant starch utensils without adding some plastic fillers. Since these plant starch utensils do not meet compostability standards they are normally priced cheaper. *The teardrop-shaped opening in the handle of our cutlery is a trademark of World Centric. World Centric utensils are certified compostable by the Biodegradable Products Institute and meet ASTM standards for compostability. Our tPLA products are guaranteed to break down in 2-3 months in industrial facilities. Please check locally, as the facilities are not available in all communities.
