In short bioplastics are "plastics' made from plant or other biological material - (also referred to as being biobased) - as a substitute for petroleum based plastics.

Biobased means that the product is either fully or party derived from biomass. For example biomass can be corn, sugarcane or cellulose. For more information on bioplastics refer to "Bioplastics Explained"

When it comes to bioplastics, Jeffries only accepts bioplastics that are Certified Compostable to Australian Standards AS4737 or Certified Home Compostable to AS 5810. For more information please refer to "What it means to be certified compostable:"
