Total degradation occurs in 5 to 10 years. The injection molded Earth Cap--a replacement for traditional LDPE caps--also features a biodegradable non-adhesive tamper-evident label and 2-mm foam seal, making the entire cap structure totally biodegradable.  Caps have a 2-year shelf life and offer the same performance as current versions. FDA compliant.
