Bagbarn offers biodegradable plastic bags which biodegrade in a continuous process until the plastic bag becomes part of the organic components of the soil like biodegradable sticks or other pieces of wood.
Bagbarn offers custom made and printed plastic bags (low density polyethylene). These poly bags are fully biodegradable in 9 to 60 months and will fully biodegrade either anaerobically or aerobically. This means that our plastic bags will degrade in landfills, when composted, buried in the ground or littered. The biodegradable plastic bags are recyclable and can also be made with recycled plastic resins. Our plastic bags do not require heat or mechanical means to break them down and do not require special handling like PLA and oxo-degradable products. Our plastic also does not contain heavy metals unlike most other oxo-degradable products.
Bagbarn.com's biodegradable plastic bags meet the ASTM 1991definition for degradable plastics which states that a degradable plastic is a plastic which degrades from the action of a naturally occurring micro-organism such as bacteria, fungi and algae. Biodegradation were tested using ASTM D5209-91 "Standard Test Method for Determining Aerobic Biodegradation of Plastic Materials in the Presence of Municipal Sewage Sludge", ASTM D 5388.98, "Standard Test Method for Determining Aerobic Biodegradation of Plastic Materials under Controlled Composting Conditions", "which is equivalent to CEN prEN WI 261085, and the ISO 14855 method , " Evaluation of the Ultimate Aerobic Biodegradability and Disintegration of Plastics under Controlled Composting Conditions."
