BIODEGRADABLE PLASTIC has arrived!

BIOPLAST is a company who manufacture Biodegradable Plastic in the form of carrier bags and refuse sacks. The biodegradable bag that we produce is environmentally friendly and non toxic. We are the only company in the UK to offer this unique product. The aim of BIOPLAST is to protect the environment in which we live in for now and for future generations. Plastic represents over a million tonnes of the UK's total waste and can take decades to degrade. Nearly all plastics are non-biodegradable, which means that they cannot be broken down by bacteria even buried in a landfill. Our bags have been successfully tested for various biodegradable parameters. The degradation of our Biodegradable plastic takes place within 30-90 days once buried. The LDP(low-density polyethelyne)/HDP(high-density polyethelyne) polymer decays due to the action of the enzymes, bacteria, starch and clay when exposed to sunlight and buried in soil such as landfills. There is only one real solution to the disposal of waste and that is BIOPLAST's Biodegradable plastic.
