Thank you for helping reduce the usage of new and recycled polyethylene-based plastic. With your help, we can soon eliminate regular plastic bags from our environment. BioBags "go away" naturally when exposed to the earth's elements and micro-organisms. BioBags are great for the collection of food waste and other biodegradable materials for composting. Together, we can change the world, without changing the earth.
The Ten Second Plastic Bag Lesson
Regular polyethylene-based plastic bags can take well over 100 years to degrade and are not compostable. Less than 2% of all plastic bags ever get recycled. Plastic bags litter our streets, backwoods and waterways. Studies indicate that 100,000 marine animals and 2 million birds die each year from ingesting or being caught up in plastic debris. Some manufacturers are blending additives to polyethylene to produce "degradable" bags. Unfortunately, this process fragments the bags into pieces of plastic debris that do not meet the ASTM D6400-99 standard for biodegradable and compostable plastic. These pieces cause serious harm when mistaken by animals and birds for food. BioBag products use no polyethylene in the production process. We are fully certified by the Biodegradable Products Institute to be 100% biodegradable and 100% compostable. Please be sure the biodegradable products you buy are properly certified.
Nature knows the difference.
