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 are banning them.
The 5p charge on plastic bags has seen a dramatic reduction in plastic bag usage in the UK, with many countries looking to put a ban in place.
While we can all agree that there is a need to reduce plastic shopping bag consumption, there are some instances where lightweight single-use bags are still required for hygienic reasons. Plus, light-weight compostable, single-use bags can be useful for collecting organic waste – like home compost or food scraps – as these bags will decompose in a home composting system.
Our bag range includes SOS bags and smaller food bags and provides an eco-friendly alternative to conventional plastic bags. They can easily stand in for grocery bags, kitchen bags, shopping bags, retail bags and any other type of plastic bag.
Aside from the obvious environmental benefits, using compostable paper bags reduces greenhouse gases, returns nutrients back to the earth and improves soil quality, and costs less than sending waste to landfill.
