What are your certifications?

Our mission is to provide our customers the safe and sustainable solutions they need to meet and exceed their own environmental commitments.

That’s why we’re constantly in the lab and working with industry leaders to ensure our products go beyond today’s rigorous environmental certifications and standards. For example, we test our products using the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standards to ensure they break down in commercial composting facilities. These tests are then verified by several third-party organizations. Refer below for more information:  


  • Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI): BPI-certified products undergo rigorous, third-party testing to verify that their products meet ASTM D6460 and/or ASTM D6868 standards (refer to “ASTM D6460” and “ASTM D6868” in our Key Terms). You can always find the latest list of Better Earth BPI product certifications by visiting BPI’s website.
  • Forest Stewardship Council (FSC): The Forest Stewardship Council is a not-for-profit organization that sets standards under which forests and companies are certified in order to meet our current needs for forest products without compromising those of the next generation. When you see the FSC label on Better Earth products, you can be assured that the forest products sourced are responsibly harvested and from verified sources.

FSC-certified Better Earth products include: 
Hot Beverage Collection

Hot & Cold Food Container Collection

  • OK Compost: Like BPI, Vinçotte OK Compost-certified products undergo rigorous, third-party testing to verify that the products are compostable in commercial or municipal facilities in compliance with the European Standard EN 13432.
