Is molded bamboo biodegradable?
March 24, 2019 - 10:40 am

I have been seeing kitchen utensils made out of molded bamboo in the stores lately. The packaging touts the products as environmentally friendly because they are made out of a sustainable product but there is no mention of whether they biodegrade. Also, these products are made in China, where manufacturers have a history of flatly lying about what a product is made of. Does anyone have information about this or can anyone recommend a reputable source of information?
