Plastic pollution is wreaking havoc on our planet, and single-use plastic bags are one of the most significant contributors, so it’s no surprise that many local and state governments worldwide are banning them.
While we can all agree that there is a need to reduce plastic shopping bag consumption, there are some instances where single-use bags are still required for hygienic reasons or for enabling food delivery services.
BioPak bags are a much more sustainable single-use bag option – they are compostable, carbon neutral and 5% of profits from each sale is donated to positive change.
Our bioplastic bags range includes compostable checkout bags and compostable bin liners and provides an eco-friendly alternative to conventional plastic bags. These biobags can easily stand in for grocery bags, garbage bags, doggy waste bags, kitchen bags, shopping bags, retail bags and any other type of plastic bag. The disposable bags can be particularly useful for collecting organic waste – like home compost or food scraps – as these bags will decompose in a home composting system.
Our bioplastic BioBags are made using Ecopond, a starch-based bioplastic that is certified industrially compostable (AS4736) and home compostable (AS5810). Unlike "biodegradable plastic bags", these eco bags are made from plants, not oil, and are part of the circular economy. "Biodegradable plastic bags" are usually simply plastic bags with a chemical additive that cause it to disintegrate into tiny pieces of microplastic! Using our compostable plastic bags reduces greenhouse gases, returns nutrients back to the earth and improves soil quality, and costs less than sending waste to landfill.
