Biodegradable is commonly associated with environmental friendly products that are capable of decomposing back into natural elements by natural processes such as action of bacteria. E.g. Paper, cotton cloth, wood etc.

Biodegradation is the disintegration of materials by bacteria, fungi, or other biological means.

The term is often used in relation to: biomedicine, waste management, ecology, and the bioremediation of the natural environment. It is now commonly associated with environmentally-friendly products, capable of decomposing back into natural elements.

Although often conflated, biodegradable is distinct in meaning from: compostable. While biodegradable simply means can be consumed by microorganisms, compostable makes the specific demand that the object break down under composting conditions.
