Spub Bibs and Chalkboard Stickers


Introducing Cocoboheme Spub Bibs
and Chalkboard Stickers
made with 100% biodegradable
plastic from potato starch.

Made with a bioplymer derived from potato starch, both the bibs and the stickers reduce the need for petroleum-based plastic and are fully compostable according to European Norm EN 13432. All the products are re-usable (bibs are waterproof) and will last approximately two years. Once you're done with them, you can either compost them and return nutrients to the soil, or put them in the trash knowing that in about 6 months, 90% of the material will have biodegraded (as opposed to many decades for most plastic bibs and vinyl stickers). Of course, the inks and glue are also eco-friendly.
I'm thrilled to introduce the French design company Cocoboheme and their sustainable, biodegradable, and virtually carbon-neutral bibs and chalkboard wall stickers.

About European Norm EN 13432: Today, the terms biodegradation, biodegradable materials, compostability etc. are very common, but frequently misused. Consequently, this is a source of misunderstanding. The European Standard EN13432 "Requirements for packaging recoverable through composting and biodegradation" resolves this problem by defining the characteristics that a material must have, in order to be defined as "compostable". This norm is a reference point for material manufacturers, public authorities, composters and consumers.
And if you're concerned that using these bibs and stickers will cut back on your supply of Tater Tots, not to worry--the starch used to make the bibs and sticker is already naturally extracted when potato products are processed. So there you have it: No potatoes were harmed in the making of Cocoboheme's products.
