My grandmother died at 93 years old, was an organized woman who has always lived in a village, maybe that’s why I valued both the things had not always had. From childhood I was struck by their way of preserving and caring for the plastic bags, in fact, my father was carrying the bags given to us in the supermarket. I never saw him miss one.

I didn’t grow up with that desire to care for the bags; I got used to that in the bakery, in the supermarket or in any store give it for free. So it is difficult to learn how to evaluate something.

over the years I began to be aware of the outrage that posed by the plastic bags of an alone use. Does it really makes sense to use a 5 minute an object that is 400 years on the planet?

The sale of the bags in supermarkets has not been the solution, this small price does not hurt when there is no environmental awareness.

I don’t know how society has come to this nonsense, but increasingly people are willing to stop it, do you want to know how?

What are the biodegradable bags, and why you need to incorporate them into your life

According to
Wikipedia,

a biodegradable shopping bag or eco is the
is bag that
to arises from the need to reuse, reduce and recycle the number of plastic bags that are thrown away each day

.

The bags are organic are the more human approach and aware of an issue that, as inhabitants of this planet, we have been gone from the hands.

Imagine that you go out to buy bread on a Saturday morning, you walk into the bakery, ask him always, and immediately, the shopkeeper puts the bar in a plastic bag. The catch, you pay and off you go.

you Get to your house, do you get the bar and strips to the bag.

This bag has been useful 5,10 or 12 minutes that you’ve taken; however it will take more than 5 centuries to disappear from the Earth.

If you have some 30 years and with an average age to have children of 30.7 years,
is that fucking bag convivirá on the planet with at least 16 generations of your family. Think about that the next time you have one in your hand and you’ll find that you treat them with more affection. And remember, the bags are not disposable.

there is No alternative or back-up,
is present and future is the bio-bags. We are not going to be another if we don’t want to drown in our own shit.

If that still doesn’t convince you, continue reading and flipa.

Read this and encourage you to, at least, to use reusable bags.

Composition and characteristics, what are they made of?

I Am one who thinks that, having devoted resources to research, eco bags would be the only option in the market. The competition of the world’s oil is still too strong.

however, we have achieved spectacular results in
is vegetable plastic materials such as corn, potato starch or cassava.

Contain additives that decompose in the presence of moisture (heat) and light. Neither in its composition or manufacture chemicals are used, which makes them environmentally friendly.

The bags are so tough, as you know, and similar in shape and uses. The only downside I find is that if you are going to use for organic waste, there is that to take the trash out almost daily, because in 2-3 days the material starts the process of oxo-degradation. That is, that the bag is leaking, and that is a pain in the neck to get it out and have to clean the bucket after. Do we agree that it is a little asquerosete?

however, this only happens with the garbage bags.

Advantages of the biodegradable bags

The need sharpens the wit, and the increased use of plastic bags since they began to spread in the US in 1977, has created a need: use bags that can degrade.

Which are decomposable means that, in a short period of time, to disintegrate; you don’t have to wait 16 generations.

For me, the main advantage of the eco bags is the personal satisfaction. The most compelling argument is selfish; every act has consequences and it is a universal law that bad deeds bring negative consequences.

Bags compostable vs biodegradable bags: differences

Is one of the doubt classic when one looks to the world of the bags are organic, are compostable? what biodegradable?

The only difference is that the bags are compostable, to break down, they end up transforming into compost, or manure for the earth. Therefore, if you have a compostadora in your garden, or you throw your organic waste in a compostadora shared, you can throw them out with these bags.

For its part, the biodegradable bags, returning to the system without leaving a trace, but they can’t be used to make compost.

If you are looking for a defición more pro:

While biodegradable simply means an object is capable of being decomposed by bacteria or other living organisms,”compostable” in the plastic industry is defined as able to decompose in aerobic environments that are maintained under specific conditions of temperature and humidity controlled.

Manufacturers of plastic bags biodegradable

there is No definitive answer to how long it takes a bag of organic degradation, the nature is too wise to put time limits.

The process of production home can be made to play with children, in schools or by experience. There are many videos where they explain how to do this, we have selected the one that best explains what is required and the raw materials to use.

Take a look by aliexpress, but walk on the
10.000 euros.

Since the introduction of “biodegradable plastics” at the end of the decade of the eighties, have prevailed confusion and skepticism about claims and product performance. This skepticism is due in large measure to the plastic products that are not oxo-degrade as expected.

The manufacturers could make claims because there were no methods and standards test with a scientific basis.

Today, technology has advanced to create plastics that look and feel like existing products, but have been designed to biodegrade, complete, and surely, when compostan in a composting plant, without leaving residue.

And what is more important, now there are specifications to scientifically prove biodegradability: ASTM D6400 for films and ASTM D6868 for packaging.

The
BPI(Biodegradable Products Institute) sponsors these tests on a scientific basis so that manufacturers can now make claims to be true and accurate on the degradability. And the BIS actively works with legislators and municipalities to ensure that they only make statements of marketing with scientific basis about biodegradable products.
