Biodegradable Bags
GreenLine Zip Locking Bags are ASTM D5511 tested to be biodegradable. In fact, recent ASTM D5511 test results showed that GreenLine Reclosable Biodegradable Bags degraded by 17% within 1 year! ASTM D5511 is a standard for testing and proving the biodegradation of plastic materials under anaerobic landfill conditions.

Reclosable Biodegradable Bag Features:

Zip Locking Biodegradable Bags may be a viable solution depending on your specific needs and priorities. Here are some things to think about when assessing their suitability:

  • Environmental Impact: Biodegradable bags are designed to degrade faster than ordinary plastic bags, lessening their environmental impact. However, "biodegradable" can be misleading because certain bags may break down solely in industrial composting facilities, while others may degrade in natural conditions. Ensure that you understand the exact circumstances required for the bags to biodegrade and select ones compatible with your disposal alternatives.
  • Functionality: Zip Locking Biodegradable Bags have the added benefit of being resealable, making them ideal for keeping food, snacks, or other goods that need to be accessed several times. However, the biodegradable materials utilized in these bags may not be as durable as standard plastic. Thus, they may not be suitable for many applications.
  • Composting: These bags can be useful if you have access to commercial composting facilities.
  • Longevity: One disadvantage of biodegradable bags is that they degrade faster than ordinary plastic bags. This can be beneficial to the environment, but it also implies that they may not be suited for long-term storage.
  • Cost: Due to the cost of developing biodegradable materials, biodegradable bags may be slightly more expensive than standard plastic bags. Consider whether these bags' environmental benefits and features are worth the extra price for the intended application.
  • Availability: The availability of biodegradable bags varies by location. Check that the bags you're interested in are readily available to you.

If you prioritize reducing plastic waste and have access to suitable disposal procedures (composting), Zip Locking Biodegradable Bags can be an excellent solution. However, before making a decision, consider their functionality, durability, and availability in light of your requirements.
