We are pleased to announce that we now have biodegradable trash bags. These bags are made from a plant-based material called Mater-bi. These bags can be disposed of in the same way as food waste. They are certified compostable as per DIN CERTO 13432 standards.
Biodegradable bags are an alternative to plastic, made from renewable sources such as corn or potato starch. They will break down into natural elements within a few months and leave no harmful residue behind.
Biodegradable trash bags offer many benefits over their non-biodegradable counterparts. They create less waste by breaking down quickly and safely in landfills, unlike plastic bags that take decades to decompose and can even leak harmful chemicals into the soil or water supply during that time span.
Biodegradable trash bags also cost less than regular plastic trash bags because they're made from renewable resources like cornstarch instead of non-renewable fossil fuels like crude oil or coal tar derivatives (which are used in traditional plastics). However, these biodegradable trash bag products cost more than conventional plastic garbage bags—the price difference is usually around $0.40 per roll!
Not only are they good for the environment, they're also great for your wallet. Biodegradable trash bags are not only biodegradable but they can be recycled too. The best part is that these bags are made from a plant-based material called Mater-bi. Mater-bi is a bioplastic made from corn and it's certified compostable. This means that once the bag has served its purpose, you can put it in your home compost bin and add it to your garden soil where it will eventually decompose into the earth again. If you don't have access to outdoor space where your trash can go directly onto the ground then there are other options: many companies now offer commercial composting services so instead of throwing away your used bags you could send them back to them for recycling!
Biodegradable bags can be disposed of in the same way as food waste.
Food waste is composted to produce organic fertilizers, which are used on farmlands to produce healthy crops. Composting is a natural process that takes place in nature, but in an urban setting where there is limited space available, it can be difficult to find ways of disposing of such large amounts of organic matter.
Composting reduces the amount of waste being sent to landfills and also produces valuable fertilizer that can help farmers grow their crops better.
They are certified compostable as per DIN CERTO 13432 standards.
DIN CERTO is a German agency that certifies materials for their biodegradability. The certification for these trash bags is for the biodegradability of the material, which means it will break down in an industrial composting facility, or at home in your own backyard with a little help from time and bacteria—though it's important to point out that this doesn't mean you can throw them into your backyard without any care!
The certification also covers how long it takes to degrade—this means that if you're using these in your home because you don't want any plastic products cluttering up the planet, then they'll be completely safe once they've been processed by nature and turned into something new like soil or mulch (which will later be used as fertilizer).
Biodegradable plastic is a type of plastic that breaks down into natural elements within a relatively short period of time after being discarded. Bioplastics can be made from corn, wood, or other organic materials as well as fossil fuels.
Bioplastics are plastics that are derived from renewable biomass sources, such as vegetable fats and oils (e.g., soybean oil), corn starch, waste paper and wood pulp. This material can be recycled; however, it may not be biodegradable if disposed in landfills because oxygen is needed to break down the molecules in plastics so they can return to carbon dioxide and water molecules. Bioplastics have been around since the 1960s when they were first developed by BASF (a German chemical company).
Biodegradable trash bags, like the ones you might find at your local hardware store, are not compostable. That's because biodegradable trash bags are usually made of polylactic acid (PLA), which is a type of plastic that is not fully biodegradable and breaks down into small pieces instead of breaking down completely.
To understand why this can happen, it's important to know the difference between the two types: one degrades under certain conditions and another breaks down completely when exposed to microorganisms in soil or water (picture an apple turning brown after being bitten into).
Compostable bin liners and trash bags are not the same as biodegradable trash bags. The term “compostable” means that a plastic item can be broken down by plants or microorganisms in a compost pile, or an industrial composter. Some biodegradable plastic products are also labeled compostable, but composting is not always an option for all types of waste streams.
Composting requires a high-temperature environment (usually above 140 degrees Fahrenheit), which makes it difficult to do at home or on a municipal level unless you have access to an industrial-sized composter like those used by cities like Seattle and San Francisco. Composting also requires specific conditions such as moisture level, air flow through the pile, oxygenation and humidity levels; these conditions must be monitored continuously throughout the process to ensure proper decomposition occurs.
Biodegradable plastics are not necessarily compostable. Biodegradable plastic is designed to break down when exposed to the elements, but it does not necessarily mean that it will break down in a compost pile. Compostable plastics are designed to break down in a compost pile and therefore have different properties from biodegradable plastic.
The primary cause of plastic pollution is convenience and the throwaway culture. Plastic is cheap, convenient, and recyclable to some extent. It’s no wonder that we are so quick to use it without thinking about how much waste we generate on a daily basis. While there are many biodegradable trash bags available in India, they aren't as common as their non-environmentally friendly counterparts because they cost more money to produce and require more resources than single-use plastic bags do.
Biodegradable trash bags are not the same as compostable trash bags. In fact, biodegradable trash bags may be worse for the environment than regular plastic. Biodegradable waste takes a long time to decompose in landfills and releases methane, a greenhouse gas that is 25 times more potent than carbon dioxide (CO2). The decomposition process also uses up oxygen in the landfill and creates unpleasant smells as bacteria break down organic matter.
This can be avoided by reducing or eliminating your use of disposables altogether—use reusable products instead! Composting is another great way to reduce waste without harming the planet or its inhabitants: it gives you a chance for some hands-on engagement with nature while reducing plastic waste by turning your food scraps into nutrient-rich soil.
We hope that this article has helped you to understand what biodegradable trash bags are, as well as the benefits of using them. The fact that they can be disposed of in the same way as food waste makes them a very useful option for both homes and offices.
