Depending on available oxygen and microbial activity of the disposal site, the materials will quickly degrade within 3 to 4 months and fully biodegrade in approximately 24 months.
Compostable solid waste in a plastic bag which biodegrades in a manner and time frame similiar to the waste inside! The waste breaks down and turns to dirt so why not the bag too?
EcoSafe Biodegradable Doggie Bags totally degrade in 3 to 4 months allowing the bag and the dog waste to degrade at rates consistant with other natural organics in the environment, with no toxic or harmful residue.
Buy compostable bags by the roll or by the case. They are shelf stable for storage in a closet, kitchen drawer or any clean, dry space in the home or office that isn't exposed to extreme heat or moisture. Click here for more detailed information.
Standard Plastics are a problem, because they are bioinert. They persist for decades after use. Over time standard plastics will oxidize, fragment and disintegrate but it takes too long. This growing problem is compounded daily.
After use, biodegradeable plastic bags by Ecosafe are safely returned to the natural bio-cycle as ‘organic carbon’, ingested by micro-organisms. These products are designed to accelerate the natural process by factors of 100 to 1,000 or more. This contributes to the fertility of compost, frees-up air space in landfills and protects against plastics in our environment and watersheds.
We have these bags in Commercial Sized Rolls and dispensers for public parks. Click here to view that page.
