We are an organic fresh produce distributor. My comments relate to food products: please dis-allow claims other than organic - this standard has extensive specifications. Do not allow "natural" and do not allow "free-of." Do not allow processors who package food in any plastic to call it "degradable." People think this means biodegradable. Be very specific about what you mean by "return to nature." This should not mean the package breaks down into tiny pieces of plastic. Thank you.
