I've been noticing several bioplastic products cropping up such as a restaurant plastic bag called "BioBag" made from Novamont's Mater-Bi, and today during my lunch, I was sipping my "extreme berry" smoothie at this burger joint in Midtown NYC when lo and behold, my smoothie cup has this logo that says "GreenWare" with the website f-k.com/green below it. I checked it out and it's not a profanity website, thank goodness lol!
Apparently, Fabri-Kal makes these 100% compostable drink cups from NatureWorks' Ingeo PLA resin. The Greenware products (according to information on their facebook page --easier for me to get information there ha!), are certified to meet ASTM 6400 for compostability in industrial compost facilities.
The company does not recommend home composting, though, so you have to locate a composting facility to make sure these biodegrade.
Where the heck is the nearest composting facility in Manhattan???
