Are your bags biodegradable?
In terms of our current bag range, the OPP (Oriented polypropylene) bags.
We are keeping our eyes open to locate alternative options but for now, there really aren’t any suitable for the use our bags are put to.
Our bags are made of polypropylene and are not bio-degradable.
We quite often get asked for true cellophane bags and though cellophane is made from plants and biodegradable, Cellophane production requires toxic carbon disulphide. Also, cellophane could end up releasing methane, a powerful global-warming gas, if lodged in a landfill that lacks a methane recovery system. With that in mind, cellophanes limited shelf life and it not being as clear, for us it is not a suitable alternative.
People searching for our bags tend to use the term cellophane. "cellophane" has become a generalised term, and is often used informally to refer to a wide variety of plastic film products, even those not made of cellulose.
Hopefully someone is able to invent a viable solution in the near future.
You don't have the size I want, can you get it?
We have a wide range of bag shapes and sizes and with that seem to be able to cover most requirements.
We do occasionally have someone needing something special and sometimes can organise this.
Having said that, special orders do have a lead time of at least a month or more, require a minimum order of 10,000 units and require a non-refundable payment prior to order being placed.
