    It isn’t a matter of time that determines biodegradability, but rather a matter of capability for something to be called biodegradable. Something is biodegradable if it is able to be broken down to its most basic components by natural means (fungus, microorganisms, and bacteria for example). If a product’s basic chemical make up is hydrogen, oxygen, and carbon, it can be biodegradable, and then it becomes a matter of time for how long it will be broken down into these main elements.
