Recylced and Biodegradable Plastic Bags

We currently have bags made with different contents of PCR and PIR materials, usually up to 30% total. In larger quantities, higher percentages are available. New! An additive that makes plastic bags biodegradable, compostable and recyclable is now available. The bags will degrade in a landfill, water or if littered. And, unlike previous additives, these bags will not prematurely degrade while in storage before their use. The use of water based inks makes for a very environmentally friendly program.

Glossary:

(PCR) Post-Consumer Recycled Material Back to the top of page

This is any material that was used and discarded by a consumer or business and captured before going to a landfill. This material is then recycled for use into a new product. It's what you take to the recycling center or put into a recycling program container for pickup.

A product label might indicate how much post-consumer recycled content the product contains. Usually it is stated by a percentage. Paper, corrugated boxes, plastic, steel, glass and rubber are among post-consumer discards that get recycled into such things as bags, boxes, insulation, park benches, milk bottles, etc.

(PIR) Post-Industrial Recycled Material Back to the top of page

This is excess, scrap or trim material that has been recovered by a factory during and after the manufacturing process but did not enter into the consumer stream.
