At becausewecare™, we are excited to introduce the BotanicBag™ – the world’s first, certified biodegradable and compostable non-woven bag. This new and innovative green technology is designed to replace the traditional non-woven “Green Bag” currently available in supermarkets and retail chains across the world. This revolutionary development also means that consumers can now take home large reusable shopping bags, using them over and over again and composting them at the end of their life cycle. The ultimate in recycled tote bags are ones that can be composted once you’re done with them, resulting in no negative consequences for the environment.
Although the traditional non-woven “Green Bags” are effective in reducing the circulation of traditional single use plastic bags, “Green Bags” are made from Polypropylene(PP), a petroleum product similar to that used for single use plastic bags. Traditional PP non-woven bags can be recycled but very few recycling programs exist, and the majority of these bags are disposed of with general waste, clogging up landfill. Similar to single use plastic bags, traditional PP bags will not break down for hundreds of years. Clearly, reusable plastic bags are not the answer. We need to move away from plastic and plastic-like substances.
becausewecare™ eco reusable bags are manufactured from a combination of plant starch and other biodegradable constituents. In the BotanicBag™, the ink and thread used in the manufacturing process are engineered to meet all international standards requirements for biodegradability and compostability. When disposed of into a composting environment, the BotanicBag™ in its entirety will break down into hummus, water and CO2 in a matter of weeks.
At becausewecare™, we are proud to offer you this latest addition to our extensive product range. Give your business and your customers the best green and environmentally sustainable choice of bag, such as reusable freezer bags or reusable fruit and veg bags.
Contact the team at becausewecare™ to find out how the BotanicBag™ can assist your business in taking an environmentally responsible step forward.
The becausewecare™ revolutionary BotanicBag™ has been awarded various international certifications for biodegradability and compostability. Tested vigorously by Organic Waste Systems (OWS), the largest recognised authority of biodegradable and compostable products in the world, the BotanicBag™ has successfully met the Compostability requirements of the European Standard(EN1342- 2000), American Standard(ASTM-D6400-2004) and Australian Standard(AS4736-2006).
The becausewecare™ BotanicBag™ has been designed to match the durability and strength of the traditional Polypropylene(PP) non-woven green bag, without using any petrochemicals. Similar to the traditional PP non-woven bags, the BotanicBag™ can be manufactured to suit most commercial requirements including thickness, strength, print and colour. The BotanicBag™ is made from of a plant-based starch sewn and biodegradable components. We manufacture BotanicBag™ eco reusable bags with our signature becausewecare™ leaves embossed into the non-woven fabric to help both you and your customers identify the difference between our bag and a traditional PP bag. We are capable of manufacturing most size and cut specifications in a wide variety of colours. Stitching is completed with biodegradable cotton, and printing is completed with non-toxic inks. Similar to the becausewecare™ extended range of products, all components of the BotanicBag™ are certified biodegradable and compostable. This means that the BotanicBag™ can simply be composted at the end of its useful life.
The BotanicBag™ is available to retailers and businesses upon special order request, with all bags tailor made for our clients according to their specifications and business branding needs.
