Marketing Description:

BioBag BioShopper biodegradable grocery bags are made in part from corn, an annually renewable resource. They will fully compost in 30-60 days in composting conditions.

BioBags are the first "bag from corn" to achieve national distribution of retail products through natural food stores across the country.

All BioBag products are shelf stable, just like paper plates or paper towels. BioBags will not decompose until they are introduced to the earths elements or micro-organisms in the soil. Extended heat can make the BioBags feel soft and may eventually cause splitting. We recommend storage in a dry, cool area.

Countries that have banned or taken action to discourage the use of plastic bags include Australia, Bangladesh, Ireland, Italy, South Africa and Taiwan. Mumbai, India, also has banned plastic bags. The City of San Francisco has levied a 17 cent tax on all plastic grocery bags.

The amount of petroleum used to make a plastic bag would drive a car about 11 meters. 230,000 plastic supermarket bags are dumped in landfills every hour. About 100,000 whales, seals, turtles and other marine animals are killed by plastic bags each year worldwide, according to Planet Ark, an international environmental group. It is estimated that Americans use 84 billion plastic bags annually.

Bio-Plastic is an earth friendly, petroleum free alternative to conventional plastic.
