The Seedling logo is a registered trademark founded by European Bioplastics. This trademark is a quality mark for products and packaging, which are certified industrially compostable according to the European standard EN 13432. The Seedling logo may be only be featured if the respective compostable product is tested and examined by the independent certifier DIN CERTCO from Germany. When successfully certified with the compostability mark, the product will fully biodegrade in an industrial composting plant within a few weeks. Otherwise the compostable product can be disposed in the organic waste collection. More detailed information on regional specifications can be obtained from municipalities or waste management authorities.
