Around the world, humans use 1 trillion plastic bags a year- that’s 1 million plastic bags a minute! These plastic bags inevitably end up discarded, polluting ecosystems and costing our Earth dearly. Plastic is made from crude oil, a non-renewable resource, and can take up to 1,000 years to break down.
Biodegradable Plastic Bags
Made from Cassava
The key ingredient in our plant-based refuse bags is cassava, a root vegetable cultivated across Southeast Asia. The cassava allows us to reduce plastic usage and makes it possible for our bags to biodegrade in under 5 years. Kind but strong, the eco-friendliness of our bags is just as important as their durability.
Our medium size cassava bags can hold up to 12kgs, and our large up to 15kgs, making our bags reliable.
Why use EnviroChange Bags?
We make our biodegradable bags by combining cassava starch- a renewable resource- with a traditional fossil fuel. When these bio-bags are discarded, the cassava starch begins to organically break down in a few months. This process produces bacteria which eat away at the polymer chains of the fossil fuel, dramatically reducing the period of degradation from 500 years to approximately 5 years.
COMPOSTABLE BAGS (soon)
Our compostable bags are made with renewable cassava starch and a biodegradable polymer. When buried in soil this material breaks down into a combination of CO2, H2O, CH4 and biomass, turning it into compostable matter. These compostable bags contain no fossil fuel polymers and as a result they can fully biodegrade in soil in just 24 months.
