Ready for a zero-waste journey? The do's and don'ts for an eco-friendly lifestyle is a pretty long list; so let's start from the basics. That being said, the burning question is how do you trash the scraps if you are following a zero-waste lifestyle?
Well, the solution is to generate less trash (pretty obvious), but also to ditch single-use plastic bags and use compostable trash bags instead.
And, here's what you need to know about compostable bags, and how they can be a great alternative to plastic bags.
What Are Compostable Bags Made Of?
It's well evident that plastic is created from polymers. However, not all polymers are plastics. meaning, polymers can be synthetic and natural. Natural polymers, and biopolymers, include materials like cellulose or starch.
In most cases, biodegradable bags are made from starches derived from plant starch like corn or sugarcane.
In a nutshell, unlike plastic bags, compostable bags do not rely on non-renewable resources like petroleum. In fact, compostable trash bags, like the ones available at EcoSoul, are made from 100% plant-based materials like corn starch.
And, besides being plant-based, these trash bags are also compostable. Offering a back-to-nature promise, all compostable trash bags, available at EcoSoul, break down into tiny pieces in a compost facility and can be used as compost to nourish the soil.
Are They Worth The Hype?
Let's admit it, we all want to do our bit to the planet and protect the future generation. However, you don't need to alter your lifestyle altogether to make a difference. A choice, as small as choosing compostable trash bags over plastic ones can make a huge impact.
Moreover, besides being safe for the planet, all biodegradable trash bags at EcoSoul are pretty functional too.
