In June 2018 a WasteMINZ working group on the Advertising of Compostable Products was established to provide some clarity around terms used in the advertising of compostable and biodegradable packaging and products and the current options for their end-of-life disposal in New Zealand.
In conjunction with Plastics NZ, the working group has produced Best Practice Guidelines for the Advertising of Compostable Products and Packaging. This is aimed at manufacturers and retailers of compostable products and packaging and is informed by the legislative framework of the Fair Trading Act.
Once finalised, the guidelines will be graphically designed to improve readability and will be made publically available on the WasteMINZ website.
We now seek your feedback and input into this guide by completing the survey below by Friday 8 March.
