Our biodegradable bags are made by a unique, technical process which combines a renewable resource - cassava starch - with a fossil fuel. When disposed of, the starch degrades naturally within just a few months and produces bacteria which begins to directly attack the fossil polymer chains, drastically reducing degradation from hundreds of years to about 5 years.
We make our compostable bags from renewable cassava starch mixed with a biodegradable polymer. Once buried in soil, this material converts into CO2, H2O, CH4, and biomass allowing it to be used as a compostable material. Because our compostable bags contain no fossil-based polymers, they will fully biodegrade in as little as 24 months.
You will instantly notice a difference in our biodegradable and compostable material's softer feel and non-chemical smell as compared to traditional plastic. This does not compromise the strength as our bags are as durable as plastic of equal size and thickness. They can even hold hot liquid and are food safe.
