Lately, the BPI and its members are seeing an increasing number of “biodegradable” claims, relating to plastic bags and other plastic items. Manufacturer claims include phrases like “biodegrades in landfills” or “reduces the impact of litter because they are biodegradable”. The BPI is increasingly concerned by these claims not only in the US but also in Canada.
