Check out this awesome solution for plant based biodegradable shopping bags originally posted by Intelligent Living, “Plastic garbage is a hazard to the marine ecosystem and, though ocean pollution is a significant issue facing the world today, plastic bags can really come in handy. If you have to do some unexpected shopping, and you forget your cloth bag at home, perhaps biodegradable shopping bags could be useful.
Thankfully, there’s a company in Shikoku Chuo City, Ehime Prefecture, Japan that developed a plastic bag that won’t hurt the environment. The bag is made of plant-based resin and decomposes in the sea within 180 days, turning into water and carbon dioxide. With a product like this, we don’t need to feel guilty for all of those moments when using a plastic bag is necessary.”
