Mini clear biodegradable bag (30% recycled) - features
- Biodegradable, eco-friendly product.
- Can be used (and reused) just like a regular polythene bag.
- Recyclable alongside regular polythene packaging.
- If littered, biotransformation (Bio-T) additive accelerates the degradation process.
- Will biodegrade in 1-2 years in the open environment (no microplastics).
- Bio-T technology transforms polymer into a wax-like substance that is no longer a plastic.
- Bacteria and fungi then break this wax into carbon dioxide, water and biomass.
- Material leaves behind no microplastics and passes ecotoxicity tests.
- PAS 9017:2020-compliant (BSI standard on biodegradability of polyolefins).
- Biodegradability info printed on bag (details below).
- Made with a minimum of 30%-recycled content (exempt from Plastic Packaging Tax).

Small clear biodegradable bag - shelf life and storage instructions
This biodegradable bag has a shelf-life of 12 months from the date of purchase.
Bags should be stored in their original packaging, at room temperature (17-23°C) and away from direct sunlight.
Failure to store correctly can reduce the product's shelf life.
How to dispose of biodegradable (Bio-T) bags
These biodegradable bags are designed to be recycled along with other traditional soft plastics. Most major supermarkets operate a bag collection point where you can take these bags, along with your traditional carrier bags.
Please note: these bags should *not* be disposed of with your food waste, or in a home compost heap, as they are not designed to biodegrade in these closed environments.
For bags that do meet the compostable standard EN13432, please see our range of compostable packing bags.
