    Anything organic is generally biodegradable. So most food waste such as banana peels, broccoli stems, coffee grounds, left overs from meals, etc. Yard waste, such as grass clippings and tree leafs or twigs, is also biodegradable in most instances. Other items might include brown paper grocery bags and certain cardboards. This is far from an exhaustive list but it’ll give you an idea.

    The Biodegradable Products Institute works to label anything that can be biodegraded.  On their website they list products that have earned the biodegradable label.  Some of the items include certain plates, cups, bowls, bags, and packing materials.  For a complete list of the companies that have earned approval, visit the BPI’s website which is shown below.
