    "Biodegradable Additive" Rubbish Bags and Bin Liners

    These bags have a biodegradable additive D2W, and are designed to reduce the impact of plastic as litter. Time frame for degradation depends upon environmental conditions and requires oxygen to be present. The degradation process can take several years. When disposed of in landfill, Eco-pal bags are unlikely to degrade – but degradation is possible. If degradation occurs it will take significantly longer than if the bag is in the open environment. If degradation occurs, it is followed by biodegradation and no harmful chemicals remain. These products are not suitable for composting.

    How does D2W work?

    • Ecopack’s range of 100% Compostable, plastic free and biodegradable bags and bin liners are an eco-friendly alternative to traditional plastic bags.

    • Ecopack's compostable bags are made from a natural starch corn starch and the printing is done with water based eco-friendly inks—a true alternative to the traditional oil-based plastics that can take up to 1000 years to break down, if at all.
    • Fully certified to meet international standards for both home and commercial composting (Please note that Commercial Composting is NOT available in some areas in NZClick Here to see where there are facilities located in NZ)
    • Ecopack’s Compostable Bags begin to decompose in a compost pile taking approximately 90 days to break down (depending on compost conditions such as temperature) leaving no harmful residues in the process. This eliminates the impact of many tons of plastic bags sitting in our landfills for thousands of years or ending up in our oceans negatively impacting our marine life.
