The facts on our eco friendly bags

  • Our biodegradable bags are produced using typical polythene (utilising oil-based polymers) and contain added substances that act about as catalysts to quicken the process of degradation.
  • A two-stage degradation process is triggered by daylight or warmth and the polythene breaks down through oxidation into little pieces, which at that point biodegrade into natural elements of carbon dioxide, water, biomass and minerals.
  • The time taken for biodegradable bags to degrade and physically disintegrate ranges from anywhere between weeks and up to 2 years depending on the physical conditions. Moisture, heat, and oxygen can all accelerate the process in the disposal environment.

Which bag materials are biodegradable?

  • Biodegradable Polythene
    Used commonly in plastic carrier bags it 'degrades' when exposed to sunlight.
  • Paper
    Our paper carrier bags are recyclable, reusable and biodegradable.
  • Card
    Our luxury bags use a high quality board which just like paper can be used again or recycled.
