Compostable Bags: made from plastic materials deriving from vegetable raw materials, such as potato starch and maize. These are ideal for large-volume, rapid-consumption products that do not require long-life packaging, thus avoiding major ecological impact. Frequently used as supermarket tote bags.
Compostable bags have a shelf life of 12 months. Compostable bags require storage in optimal conditions: protection from the weather, temperature changes, closed boxes, exposure to the sun, etc. The material may otherwise decompose sooner than envisaged.
