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.
