Why It Matters.

Even though "biodegradable" and "compostable" products are everywhere, uncertified products can be made of materials that break down into damaging particles and are difficult to clean up. But don't worry, we've attained BPI and DIN certifications to ease your mind.  LÜ composts only into good stuff.
