- Launched a new trademarked icon, in April, to help consumers identify products made from bioplastics. The new symbol is a result of Cereplast’s “Make Your Mark” competition which produced a new icon that will represent the next generation of plastics — bio-based, biodegradable, and compostable plastics that protect and preserve the environment. The new icon will be used in a similar fashion to the recycling symbol as it will be stamped on products and serve as an identifying mark of bioplastic material.
