Compostable Products Legislation
The MNCC has been working with the MPCA to develop compostable product legislation that properly labels plastic food service products as compostable, makes those products easily identifiable to consumers and prevents green washing of plastic food service products as compostable or biodegradable unless those products meet specific testing standards.

Note: This is the language that will be introduced, however changes maybe made as the bill moves through the legislative process.

The Compost Story
The Compost Story involves a host of film stars urging citizens to compost. Much of the funding for the project came from members of the USCC after one of the founders, Finian Makepeace, introduced the project at COMPOST2017.
