Cereplast bioplastic symbol launched

Cereplast announced last week the launch of its new bioplastic symbol, which came from a graphic design student at the University of Louisville, Kentucky, — the winner of Cereplast’s “Make Your Mark” competition.

The new bioplastic symbol will be stamped on products made from Cereplast’s bioplastic, which will serve as an identifying mark of bioplastic material. The goal, according to Cereplast, is to help consumers identify products and packaging made from bioplastics much like the current recycling symbol seen on recycled and recyclable products.

I’m sure Cereplast would love other companies to use the logo for their bioplastic products but if that will be the case, it might be better for those companies to first produce third-party certification that indicates their product really has bioplastic content on it to avoid greenwashing.
