Prettier than the average dog poo bag, these are extra strong and made entirely from plants:
40% corn starch
50% PBAT (a biodegradable random copolymer)
9.99% edible plant glycerine
0.01% water-based inks
The materials are certified to EN13432 standards to be 100% compostable. These bags from Adios are all natural and contain no nasty additives. The corn that is used in the process to make these bags is the “spoilt” corn which is dropped on the factory floors and inedible.
Adios bags will decompose into water, carbon dioxide and biomass in approximately 90-180 days – when placed into a composting environment or compost system. No harmful chemicals are released into the environment during this process.
Adios plastic bags can be disposed of with general rubbish. However, it’s always better to use a disposal method that willnot go to landfill. A local compost collection bin or a specific bin for dog waste disposal is ideal. The best way is to compost them, but this cannot be used for edible plants or flowers...for obvious reasons!
The guys at Adios take their poo bags really seriously...they've even tested the strength of the bags with a house brick...at 3.5kg in weight! The bags are 20 microns thick – most cheaper alternatives are only 15-18 microns thick. So there you go!
