GREER, S.C. March 2, 2023 – LifeMade Products LLC (LifeMade), an operating company of Jadex Inc., is proud to announce that the company’s LifeMade® Compostable Straws have received OK compost HOME certification from TÜV Austria. This achievement is in addition to the product’s BPI Commercially Compostable certification previously received.

TÜV Austria OK compost HOME certification provides assurance to consumers that LifeMade® Compostable Straws will compost safely in any home compost heap. Made in the USA, LifeMade® Compostable Straws are available in Jumbo size and packaged for most foodservice operations, having a diameter of 0.25” and a length of 8”. The straws are individually wrapped and available in case counts of 2,000 and 10,000 pieces. For use in cold drinks only, these straws are stronger than paper straws and will not deteriorate when they get wet.
