“Drive awareness and understanding of composting systems that include certified products, in the context of the circular economy and diversion of organics from landfills.”


Provide technically and scientifically credible certifications for materials that biodegrade in biologically active environments.


Drive awareness and  understanding of composting  systems that include certified products, in  the context of the circular economy and diversion of organics from landfill.


Expand opportunities and access for systems that accept and process  certified products in the context of zero waste. 

There is always more to learn when it comes to organics diversion, compostable products, composting infrastructure, and how it all fits within the waste management hierarchy.

Find a Composter helps buyers of finished compost, as well as businesses and households looking to divert organics, to connect with composters in their local communities.  

Effective strategies for labeling and identification of compostable products and packaging help minimize contamination for composters, and have been consolidated in an industry guidelines document generated by BPI.

The benefits of compost must be incorporated into life cycle assessments of organics recycling and compostable products for an accurate understanding of environmental impacts.

BPI is a science-driven organization that 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.
