Q: What is meant by the term biodegradable?
A: A biodegradable product has the ability to breakdown, safely and relatively quickly, by biological means into raw materials of nature and disappears into the environment.
Q: What is the difference between degradable and biodegradable bags?
A: Degradable bags partly breakdown however not completely. The result of this action is the remains of the plastic shreds, which should, subject to the additive used be non-toxic. A biodegradable bag on the other hand completely disappears and is compostable, hence enhancing the nutritive value of the remaining soil.
