The Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI) is North America’s leading third-party certifier of compostable materials, products, and packaging. The organization is science-driven, and supports a shift to the circular economy by promoting the production, use, and appropriate end of lives for materials and products that are designed to fully biodegrade in specific biologically active environments.
