The Bioplanet greenometer can be found on all of our products packaging. The purpose of the greenometer is for customers to easily identify the eco-friendly attributes a specific product may possess.
Carbon footprint is defined as the amount of greenhouse gases that humans produce directly or indirectly through human activities which contribute to the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) that is in the air (Time for Change).
Annual Renewable means that the raw materials used to make the products will grow up back next year; so we are not depleting the resources of the planet.
Biodegradable means to be able to break down (decompose) in natural environment with the help of microorganisms. Examples of biodegradable substances are food scraps, wood, human and animal waste.
Compostable is essentially the same as biodegradable but with an additional benefit. Compostable products break down and release nutrients into the soil which help the growth of trees and plants. Examples of such products include cups, bowls, plates, trays, and cutlery.
