Every minute, two million plastic bags are used, that’s one trillion a year! Most of these will end up in landfills, but some will end up being consumed by wildlife in both oceans and on land, often with fatal results. Meet the solution, EnviGreen bags. Made from 12 ingredients, including potato, corn, natural starch, vegetable oil, and banana, they are India’s first 100% biodegradable and edible bags, so they can be thrown away without harming the planet or animals. Get started on your Irish compostable bag journey by visiting compostablebags.ie and write to your local restaurants and cafes asking them to start using biodegradable products like those from down2earth.
