Clear biodegradable bag - shelf life and storage instructions
This bag has a shelf-life of 12 months from the date of purchase.
We recommended that bags are stored in their original packaging, away from direct sunlight and between 17-23°C.
Failure to do this can reduce the product's shelf life.
How to dispose of Bio-Transformation (Bio-T) packaging
To dispose of these biodegradable bags, please recycle them along with other soft plastics at a bag collection point in your local major supermarket.
Do not dispose of them with your food waste or in a home compost heap as they are not designed to biodegrade in closed environments.
If you're looking for bags that meet the compostable packaging standard EN13432 and so can be disposed of with food waste, we also offer a range of compostable packing bags.
