Our Certifications

100% COMPOSTABLE – 100% BIODEGRADABLE

Everyone at UniDomum truly believes in the service we provide and the value it brings to our communities.

All our compostable bags are certified by the Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI) for use in commercial and municipal composting facilities, in compliance with U.S. standard ASTM D6400 and European OK Compost HOME & INDUSTRIAL( so you can use them even in your home or  backyard compost bin/heap)

The Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI) is based in the US and the Logo certifies that the product has achieved ASTM D6400 certification which is the North American equivalent of the European EN 13432. Both specifications require that biodegradable & compostable products completely decompose in a composting setting in a specific time frame, leaving no harmful residues behind.
TUV Austria developed OK compost HOME to guarantee complete biodegradability in the light of specific requirements, even in your garden compost heap.
It is awarded only if the product had already pasted INDUSTRIAL OK Compost certification. Therefore, to compost waste at home and at industrial/municipal facilities it is sufficient to display only the OK HOME Compost Logo and Cert.No
Packaging or products featuring the OK compost INDUSTRIAL label are guaranteed as biodegradable in an industrial composting plant. This applies to all components, inks and additives. (EN 13432: 2000 standard). Any product featuring the OK compost INDUSTRIAL logo complies with the requirements of the EU Packaging Directive ( 94/62/EEC).
The Seedling logo is a registered trademark owned by European Bioplastics. It proves that a product is certified industrially compostable according to the European standard EN 13432.

All our bags are made with cornstarch which is one of the best sustainable and widely available raw material. If disposed of correctly, microorganisms will break down the bags into carbon dioxide, water, inorganic compounds and biomass at the same rate as other organic materials in the compost pile, leaving no toxic residue.

Bioplastics do produce significantly fewer greenhouse gas emissions than traditional plastics over their lifetime. There is no net increase in carbon dioxide when they break down because the plants that bioplastics are made from absorbed that same amount of carbon dioxide as they grew.

For many families, using 100% bio-based products can be an excellent way to reduce its home carbon footprint for the benefit of current and future generations.
