Legal Product Marking, Paper Is Not Biodegradable

According to guidelines adopted by the Federal Trade Commission and several states such as California, raw material and package marking cannot claim a product is biodegradable, whether it is paper, plastic or metal—unless it is substantiated with verifiable scientific tests.
