What Is A ‘Biodegradable Bag’?

Biodegradable bags are made from plant-based materials like corn and wheat starch rather than petroleum. Under certain conditions when oxygen is present, biological processes break these bags down into molecules such as carbon dioxide, water and methane.

How can I tell if a bag is conventional plastic, biodegradable or degradable?

It can be difficult to tell if a bag is made from conventional plastic, biodegradable materials or oxo-degradable plastic. Some bags may be labelled as ‘100% degradable and recyclable’ or ‘This bag is made of 100% biodegradable plastic’. If unsure, you can try asking your retailer or the manufacturer for information – or better still, avoid using single-use plastic bags whenever possible.
