WHY NOT TO USE CONVENTIONAL OR OXO – BIODEGRADABLE ?
Traditional or Conventional plastic bags
Traditional or Conventional plastic bags are made from a non-renewable resource, When discarded they simply break into smaller and smaller pieces over hundreds of years, inflicting untold amounts of damage to our natural ecosystems.
Oxo-degradable plastic bags
Oxo-degradable plastic bags are definitely not beneficial, when they are discarded and they come in contact with the Sunâ€™s UV rays they just become tinier and tinier pieces of microplastic quicker, and still pose serious threats to the ecosystem and marine life
Microplastics enter the food chain lower down
Microplastics enter the food chain lower down, getting eaten by smaller species and then continuing to make their way up the food chain as these smaller species are consumed.
WHY USE COMPOSTABLE ?
Compostable packaging material is just like a fruit or vegetable peel, so nature wonâ€™t even notice it.
- The Banana fruit is packed by nature in a protective multi-layer peel. When discarded the Banana peel decomposes and leaves no toxic residue; the compost left behind can be used for plant growth. 100% of the banana peel returns to nature.
- Likewise Compostable Films / Bags are a Bio Based alternative for Conventional Plastics as they seamlessly integrate into nature’s carbon cycle by balancing the rate of carbon release with the rate of carbon fixation
