Fraud claimed over marketing claims

This is a good example of what has been said in this group for quite a while now. While compostable is a good idea, the lack of infrastructure to make it a viable option for disposal of plasic waste is just not there. The maufacturers of the compostable items know this yet still market their products as compostable, biodegradable, good for the environment and so on, well knowing that very few of these claims will be able to be acheived. So fraud is the result in this case. A few more cases like this would force the compostable industry into better shape.
