Annually, approximately 500 billion plastic bags are used worldwide. That’s more than one million bags used per minute. Each bag has an average “working life” of 15 minutes… And will take centuries to breakdown… Only to break down into microplastics… With growing awareness of this “bag crisis,” companies, such as Net Zero Co. have come out with certified home compostable plant based bags.

The terms compostable and biodegradable are thrown around a lot, but it’s important acknowledge that there is a difference between the two. Compostable means that a product, under the right conditions, can be metabolized by micro-organisms and broken down into natural elements (water and carbon dioxide), where as, though biodegradable plastics, which are made from petrochemicals containing biodegradable additives (enhance biodegradation), do breakdown, they leave inorganic compounds behind which may cause harm to the environment.

So, in a turtle-shell, when shopping for biodegradable bags, it’s important to look for the word “compostable” not “biodegradable,” in order to make the greenest and most sustainable choice!

Fortunately for you, we have already found a home compostable bag AND… it has a turtle on it!!

The bags are sold by Net Zero Co., a Canadian company that offers zero-waste options for your day-to-day life. Net Zero Co. is great because when you show your commitment to sustainability and protecting the environment by purchasing their products, they make a meaningful donation to Eden Reforestation Projects. Eden Reforestation is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide fair wage employment to impoverished villagers through tree planting in countries where mass deforestation has taken place. In this way, they hope to reverse the devastating effects of deforestation and fight poverty at the same time.
