Made from plastic - generally polyethene. Very misleading as everything is degradable (your car, rots eventually doesn't it). Can take up to 1000 years to break down - during which micro-plastics are left behind which pollute the soil, oceans and waterways.
The most misleading of the three due to fancy wording and imagery. Made from a combination of petroleum, chemicals and additional micro-organisms. There is no set time frame, standards or certification required to validate or prove any claims regarding the degradation process/time frame. Take years to break down.
Made from renewable sources (corn starch). Has to adhere to strict European standards - Within 12 weeks no more than 10% of the original material remains in pieces bigger than 2mm, along with zero contamination of the soil. *Results based on ideal composting conditions. Leaves behind ZERO micro-plastics, just soil-enriching nutrients.
Fun fact - All things labelled compostable are in fact biodegradable, but all things labelled biodegradable aren't actually compostable - via European bioplastics
