Shelf life and storage instructions

Biodegradable packaging has a shelf-life of 12 months from the date of manufacture, due to the bio-additive that accelerates the degradation process.

To maximise this shelf life, please store these bags in a cool, dry place and in their original packaging.

Disposal options for biodegradable carrier bags

  • Recycling - This bag is suitable for recycling alongside traditional polythene bags until the point it starts to break down. Once degradation has begun, it should not be recycled.
  • Domestic Compost - This bag can be placed in a domestic compost unit, provided the unit provides suitable disposal conditions, i.e. exposure to oxygen (essential), moisture, heat, mechanical stress (movement) and microbes. Biodegradation times will vary according to disposal conditions, but will be slow and may take several years.
  • General Waste - If the above options are not available or suitable, this bag can be thrown in the bin as last resort, as the bio-additive will cause the bag to break down in the upper regions of landfill.
  • Industrial Compost - This bag is not suitable for industrial composting, as the process does not provide sufficient exposure to oxygen for the bag to break down. Therefore, please do not dispose of this bag with your food waste. For bags designed for industrial composting, please see below.
