Why choose a compostable BioBag?
BioBag products are 100% certified compostable.
That’s more than just ‘biodegradable’.
Function, quality and standards are equally important – to us and to our customers.
It’s not just us who say it …
Products that claim to be ‘completely compostable’ have to be certified as such by a third-party, certification authority using accepted European, US and/or Australian standards. Composting involves breaking down organic waste using millions of tiny microrobes, in the right conditions, with the right levels of heat, water and oxygen, to create a rich, soil-like substance.
Simply claiming that a product is ‘biodegradable’ as an interchangeable term for ‘compostable’ can be confusing for consumers.
The fact is that, in time, most things are biodegradable. But that process can take hundreds of years for some plastics. So, not everything that is biodegradable is environmentally friendly.
Many biodegradable but non-compostable plastics break down into tiny fragments of plastic which remain lying around in our world for years
The specifications met by BioBag products require that our products completely decompose, in a composting setting, within a specific time frame (around 6 months) leaving no harmful residues behind.
That means that ‘on our watch’, when a BioBag bag breaks down, there are no tiny fragments of plastic left behind in the natural world. No tiny pieces of plastic which could be consumed and build up inside mammals, fish and even insects.
That’s the type of bag we make.
That’s the kind of world we want.
