Mary asked this question on 16th Mar 2009
Q: I read recently that while biodegradable plastic is good in terms of easing landfill, it creates more problems by releasing harmful greenhouse gases. What's your view on that, please?
A: The manufacturer's website tells us that an additive put into the plastic at the extrusion stage makes the finished product "oxo-biodegradable" so that it will degrade and disappear in a short timescale, leaving no fragments, no methane and no harmful residues. The process reduces the plastic to nothing more than CO2 and Water.
This additive works to break down the carbon-carbon bonds in the plastic leading to a lowering of the molecular weight and eventually to a loss of strength and other properties. These particular bags do not require a biologically active environment to start degrading, and are therefore 'degradable' rather than 'bio-degradable'.
I hope this helps. Jo.

Q: What size bin do these fit?
Thanks for the query. Each bag has a rim length of approx 146cm, so any bin that has a rim that long (or smaller) would be ideal for these bags.
Hope this helped!
