Our oxo-degradable bags are a revolutionary solution to your plastic bag needs. For your use, the bags are strong and sturdy, but when thrown away, they soon begin the process of disintegration and eventually bio-assimilate just like a leaf would. The best of both worlds so you are happy and the Earth is unaffected.
Benefits of Bio-Impact Bags
The benefits of our oxo-biodegradable plastic bags are tremendous. Here are a few:
- Strength and performance is unaffected, our bags are made to be used over and over throughout their lifetime;
- Material is light weight, flexible and durable
- Contain a percentage of recycled plastic and can be recycled with other oil-based plastic unlike compostable bags which will harm the recycling process
- Contains no harmful residues or metals
How does Oxo Biodegradable Work?
The use the most state of the art additive and mix with the basic polymer resin. The plastic is then extruded with the same machinery and labor as a standard plastic bag.
After a period of planned stability due to the anti-oxidants contained in the formula, a breakdown occurs in the molecular chain. The plastic becomes brittle and disintegrates into tiny flakes, eventually becoming accessible to micro-organisms and beginning bio-assimilation process. Once converted, the bag is no longer plastic, it becomes a mixture of water, CO2 and biomass material.
