Bioplastics

There are many benefits of bioplastics: by making use of biomass (corn starch, among others) we save on fossil fuels, reduce CO2 emissions and contribute to the realization of a circular economy. Bioplastics are used in the packaging, food services, agriculture and horticulture, medicine, consumer electronics and the automotive industries.

Control of plastic waste (i.e. plastic soup) can be largely solved by the use of compostable and biodegradable materials. The remains can be used in the agricultural and horticultural sector. Natural Bag offers bags made of bioplastics that are 100% compostable and biodegradable, certified according to the European standard EN 13432.

Plastic, however, takes a very long time to break down and is very harmful to the environment. Bags made of bioplastics have the basic ingredient granulate made from renewable resources like corn starch, thistles, sugarcane, sugar beet, potato starch and biodegradable polymers (bio-polymers).

An additional advantage of renewable materials for bioplastics is that no oil-based components are used (fossil fuels - basis of regular plastic) and no trees need to be felled. The biomass used is renewable, hence the depletion of resources is not an issue. Because of the short carbon cycle, biomass is characterized as CO2 neutral. 

In addition the production process of a bioplastic carrying bag is energy efficient compared to the production of regular plastic or paper bags reducing CO2 emissions. Lower CO2 emissions results in less greenhouse gas; this is important for the effort to prevent and reduce global warming.

The corn used to produce the granules for the bioplastics in our products are not withdrawn from the food chain and is guaranteed not genetically modified (GMM free). 

Bioplastics share the same features and benefits as conventional plastics. A bioplastic carrier bag also looks exactly like a traditional carrier bag. Additionally, the bioplastic carrier bag is just as strong and sturdy with the same capacity and tensile strength. The big difference is the environmentally friendly degradation of the waste and CO2 neutral impact of the biomass used. The bags offered by us are 100% compostable. That makes your choice for a bioplastic carrier bag from Natural Bag naturally bio & logical!

Below you can view a promotional video of the production and research process as well as different applications of bioplastics of one of the most progressive producers of the basic material of bioplastics.



MAASSLUIS SINTERKLAAS 2016

Here you see how the Municipality of Maassluis is in action for the campaign "Maassluis is a gift" by choosing the 100% natural bags of Natural Bag. We are proud that our bags were selected as goody bags and handed out to all of the children and visitors creating a wonderful memory of the official arrival of Sinterklaas in the Netherlands in 2016!
