BioBag, USCC and Their New Buy-Compost.com

The US Composting Council (USCC) is THE national organization in the US dedicated to the development, expansion and promotion of the composting industry. Their mission is to advance composting and promote compost use to enhance soils and provide economic and environmental benefits for their members and society. BioBag has been a long-standing member of the USCC for over 10 years, practically since their inception. Our mission of expanding landfill diversion rates through the collection and recycling or composting of organic waste aligns synergistically with the USCC’s. As a proud member of the USCC, we wanted to congratulate and support their new website: Buy-compost.com.
Buy Compost.com

The USCC created this site to:

  • Offer a more user friendly interface for compost consumers and prospects looking to purchase compost
  • Provide an easier way for those looking for composting answers to find what they need
  • Serve as a portal for community gardens looking for compost donations as part of our 2013, ‘One Million Tomato‘ campaign
The new website is still a work in progress but we think it is an amazing step toward reaching the USCC’s and BioBag’s missions. Here are some great features that we especially like:

For Consumers:

  • How to use compost for different purposes (Lawn, Trees/Shrubs, Flowers & Vegetables)
  • What to look for when buying compost, including guidelines
  • Where to buy and how much to buy for your needs, including a buying calculator

For Prosumers (Industry Pros):

  • Benefits of compost for a variety of commercial applications
  • What to look for when buying compost
  • Where to buy and how much to buy for your needs, including a buying calculatorTake a look and let us know what you think. We’ll pass it along to our good friends at the USCC.

New FTC Green Guides

FTC Green Guides
After close to 5 years of deliberating, the Federal Trade Commission released their revised Green Guides earlier last month. Companies making environmental claims about their products and/or services should make it a priority to comply with these Green Guides.

The Green Guides were first introduced in 1992 and have been modified a couple of times since, with the latest revision including new-age topics of environmental certifications and seals, carbon offsets, and renewable energy and materials claims.

Green product resellers and manufacturers, as well as all consumers, should familiarize themselves with these latest guidelines. Below is a great summary video by the FTC that walks you through the revisions and additions.

To review the complete guidelines, visit here.

BioBag, of course, has the most interest in and is actively pursuing compliance concerning our claims on compostability.

Compostable:

  • Marketers who claim a product is compostable need competent and reliable scientific evidence that all materials in the product or package will break down into — or become part of — usable compost safely and in about the same time as the materials with which it is composted.
  • Marketers should qualify compostable claims if the product can’t be composted at home safely or in a timely way. Marketers also should qualify a claim that a product can be composted in a municipal or institutional facility if the facilities aren’t available to a substantial majority of consumers.
A few years ago, BioBag worked with the FTC to ensure that all our packaging claims abided by these guidelines. With the publication of the latest revisions, BioBag is currently working again with the FTC to continue the truthfulness and honorably of our environmental claims.

If you have any questions about BioBag products and our environmental claims, especially regarding compostability, please feel free to contact us at any time at info@biobagusa.com or 727-789-1646.

Thank you.


Did You Know Most BioBags Are Proudly Made In America?

Back in the old days of BioBag USA, we sourced and shipped our products from Europe. You can imagine that our carbon footprint was substantially larger than desired. As the compostable bag market grew, along with our sustainability initiatives, we were able to identify a stateside production facility that could produce our specialized line of products. Our efficiency increased and we were fortunate to move more and more BioBag products to the USA.
Most recently we began manufacturing our commercial liners (13 gallon – 96 gallon) at this factory. The commercial liners as well as our shopping bags, produce bags, custom bag products, lawn and leaf bags, food waste bags and tall kitchen bags are all produced right here in our own backyard. We are proud to be able to do our small part of increasing American job growth, promoting American industry and decreasing our carbon footprint!

We thank you for your support over the years and we look forward to bringing you more innovative and environmentally responsible compostable products.
