Storage instructions and shelf life

Please store these biodegradable carrier bags in their original packaging in a cool, dark place.

This will help to maximise the bags' shelf-life - 12 months from date of manufacture - which risks being reduced if exposed to heat or sunlight, due to the bio-additive designed to accelerate the degradation process.

Biodegradable packaging - disposal options

  • Recycling - This carrier bag is suitable for recycling alongside traditional carrier bags before it begins to degrade. If the bag has already started to break down, it is no longer suitable for recycling.
  • Domestic Compost - This bag can be composted at home, provided the composting unit provides exposure to oxygen (essential), heat, moisture, mechanical stress (movement) and microbes. Please note that home composting times may be very slow (>2 years) and will vary greatly according to composting conditions.
  • General Waste - If this bag can no longer be recycled (i.e. already started to degrade) and suitable home composting is not available, it can be thrown in the bin as a last resort, as the bio-additive will help the bag to break down in the upper regions landfill.
  • Industrial Compost - This carrier bag is not suitable for composting in an industrial composting unit, as there will be insufficient oxygen exposure for the bag to break down properly. Therefore, please do not place this bag in your food waste collection. For suitable bags for this purpose, please see below.
