Biodegradable products

Polybags Ltd. now manufacture and stock a wide range of eco-friendly green packaging and biodegradable products to suit your needs and help towards a better environment (both PolyBio and Biodegradable). These include kitchen waste and refuse bags, bin liners, carrier bags and standard bags developed in Polybags laboratories in conjunction with the Polymer Research Department at the London Metropolitan University.

Why environmental bags has become a popular search term

Biodegradable bags? Yes, thanks

In this early 2018 it seems the main problem for British is the price of biodegradable bags for fruit and vegetables. Many British complain about the cents to buy the biodegradable bags nevertheless say none about toxic clouds that devastate the territory from North to South.What are we talking about for the benefit of our non-British readers?

According to researchers in Genoa, bioplastics can be decomposable and manufactured from agro waste, helping solve both the plastic and crop burning problem.

One method to see at the crop burning issue in United Kingdom is to use these wastes for bioplastics and biofuels, suggested Katiyar, the coordinatour for Centre of Excellence for Sustainable Polymers at United Kingdom's British Institute of Technology , Guwahati. This could also tie in with the biorefinery view which means transforming biomass to energy and other beneficial byproducts including bioplastics and biofuels.

Meet our partnership with Turtle Bags, 100% biological and ecological. These beautifully sustainable and cruelty-free short handle bags are manufactured with GOTS certified 100% Organic Cotton. Organic cotton is grown without harmful chemicals and it uses around 46% less water when compared to normal cotton, protecting the ecosystem, reducing misuse of water and ensuring a safer working environment for the farmers and manufacturers. Take them to transport your vegan lunch to work or use them to transport your groceries. So plenty options to use them and a gentle substitute to plastic bags! Available in dark green, normal and black. Turtle Bags was created in 2001 in response to the lack of ethically sourced reusable shopping bags. One of the company?s main concerns is that in the UK, plenty plastic bags are discarded, travel along rivers and streams and stop up out at sea. Turtles venturing into UK waters encounter them and are increasingly mistaking the waste with one of their favourite snacks, the jellyfish. Furthermore, these eco-friendly bags are ethically sourced from a small business in United Kingdom which guarantees fair wages, assist and healthcare to its employees. Carefully manufactured in a fair work environment. Turtle Bags is a BAFTS Certified Company.

1. green environmental protection: the use of environmental bags for the all people can greatly reduce the use of plastic bags, greatly reducing the spread of white pollution; 2., superb performance: the environmental protection bag is strictly complying with the relevant national environmental standards, and is manufactured of environmentally friendly processing materials, and its degradation ability is better than other materials. And the life of this kind of environmental protection bag is much longer than that of paper bag.

Buhbli Organic's change aligned their biological product with a more uniform eco-friendly packaging solution.

What happens to a BioBag in landfill? Compostable bags smash down into biological matter anywhere microorganisms exist, including in a landfill. The length of time it takes for the bags to smash down relies on specific conditions like the temperature and number of microorganisms present.

Bioplastics can take different length of times to totally compost, based on the material and are meant to be composted in a commercial composting facility, where higher composting temperatures can be reached and is between 90-180 days. Most existing international standards require biodegradation of 60% within 180 days along with certain other criteria for the resin or product to be called compostable. It is also important to make the distinction between degradable vs. biodegradable vs. compostable as often these terms are used interchangeably.

Biodegradable Plastic

Biodegradable Plastic is plastic which will degrade from the action of naturally occurring microorganism, such as bacteria, fungi etc. over a period of time. Note, that there is no requirement for leaving "no toxic residue", and as well as no requirement for the time it needs to take to biodegrade.

Recycling is also important for the environmental and for that we also have a recycled bags page with interesting information.

Degradable Plastic

Degradable plastic includes all classes of degradable plastic including the biodegradable and compostable. However, plastic that is not biodegradable or compostable usually use the label Degradable plastic. Most of the products using the label Degradable plastic, degrade as result of physical and chemical impact. Biological activity is not a significant part of the degradation of these products, or the process is too slow to earn the classification Biodegradable or Compostable.

Types of Degradable Plastic


Some degradable plastic products are based on starch derived from maize. These materials predominantly require an active microbial environment such as landfill or composting before they will degrade some will totally degrade in such an environment but others will only perforate, and the plastic component will not degrade. The remaining plastic particles can e harmful to soil, birds and other wildlife. Whilst using renewable ingredients may seem attractive in principle, they do not offer the best way forward.


Another type of degradable plastic uses aliphatic polyesters, which are relatively expensive. In the same manner as starch, they rely on microbial activity in compost or landfills before they will degrade.


These will degrade when exposed to sunlight, but will not degrade in a landfill, a sewer, or other dark environment.


The products above degrade by a process of HYDRO-degradation, but the most useful and economic of the new technologies produces plastic, which degrades by a process of OXOdegradation. This technology is based on a small amount of pro-degradant additive (typically 3%) being introduced into the conventional manufacturing process, thereby changing the behavior of the plastic. This does not rely on microbes for the degradation of the plastic, which starts immediately after manufacture and will accelerate when exposed to heat, light or stress. This process is irrevocable and continues until the material has reduced to nothing more than CO2 and water. It does not therefore leave fragments of petro-polymers in the soil.

Biodegradable or Biodegradeable?

It is very common to misspell biodegradable as biodegradeable (please take note yourself as some of our domains are actually misspelt!) and the same happens with degradable as degradeable. In fact when written down the word biodegradable often looks like an incorrect spelling and has been known to be corrected to biodegradeable by some overzealous and missinformed editors. So, now you know if someone tells you otherwise stick out your guns!
