Disposal How is it disposed of and what is the impact?
General Overview: In general, this Basic Lifecycle Standard looks at the product at the end of its usage and how it is disposed. The sub-elements are pretty straight forward.
- a) Bio-degradable does the product bio-degrade after it is disposed? This sub-element is an absolute review. Either it is or it is not.
- b) Recyclable can this product be recycled? This sub-element is two pronged, with an absolute Yes or No, and if yes a determination of how much of the product is recyclable.
