Take a look at our customer testimonials.
A friend once told me that he felt terrible about using biodegradable doggie bags and then stuffing them into a plastic kitchen bag. That stayed with me until I found this wonderful product. First the positive: it's a great value for the money, lots and lots of bags for the money, a variety of sizes for every occurrence (yard, pets and kitchen.) Plus, they work just as well as those kitchen bags from Cosco. My only complaint (and it's not that big at all) is that it would make me happier if the bags were shipped in one big box instead of 5 small boxes (which by the way, are by themselves very nice and would actually make a nice gift to someone that doesn't use bio bags.) No, you will not get 5 individual shipments, you will get one box with 5 small boxes inside. Either way, this is a great product. Do the right thing!! - J. Gabriel Madrigal
On the other day, one of our staff browsed the internet and surprising, we found this (http://www.carbon-clear.com/apps/nh/eicalculator.php?lang=en_ES&idc=1) the carbon calculator from a hotel chain, which is NH Hotel chain, the most fast growing hotel chains on the world that creats a lot of excitement for the customers. Guess what, we found their green initiatives right at the hotel room, they are all biodegradable and made with d2w controlled-life plastic technology (know more about d2w).
This week the hotel chain, with just shy of 400 hotels across Europe, the Americas, and Africa, will announce its intent to have suppliers switch from standard thermoplastics to ones loaded with a special additive that causes thermoplastics to oxo-biodegrade at a controlled rate.
NH Hoteles, based in Spain, has 399 hotels with over 60,000 rooms in 24 countries across Europe, America, and Africa.
What's the benefit of switching to oxo biodegradable packaging?

Here, we would like to share an example of applying oxo biodegradable technology to disposable bottle caps, sounds very different if you first time heard of it, and this is a very interesting idea from NorlandGreen. They have created three colors which are very earthy, and they've showed case their testing process to demonstrate to customers what's going to happen after the safe service life of the oxo biodedegradable products - controlled-life plastic technology.

Go Green – Earth-Cap. (http://www.norlandgreen.com)
How it Works – Degradation of the Norland Earth-Cap
The formulation used in the Norland Earth-Cap, contains a proprietary mixture of: • a pro-oxidant • a photo-initiated initial degradation inhibition element • a secondary bio-degradation initiator. This unique formulation has been developed to give the plastic cap, an in-house storage shelf life of approximately 24 months. There is a further “dwell time”, of around 6 months after disposal. This is followed by a rapid breakdown of polymer properties resulting in acute embrittlement, after 36 months from disposal. The three stages of the cap breakdown are classified as follows:
1. Embrittlement - After the cap is used, and then disposed, the embrittlement process begins. This embrittlement is activated primarily by sunlight, and/or heat generated within a landfill. The embrittlement process is similar visually to that of a shattered windshield-where the plastic cap begins fragmenting into small pieces. Scientifically, the molecular weight of the polymer chain has been reduced, thus increasing the microbial accessibility, and eventual bio-digestion. 2. Micro-fragmentation – this is the further fragmentation of the embrittlement stage into smaller fragments, which then begins the bio-digestion. This micro-fragmentation of the polymer chain promotes the growth of microbial colonies to expedite the biodegradation. 3. Bio-digestion – Is the consumption of the micro-fragmentation pieces, by the microbial colonies, resulting in the Earth-Cap being ultimately consumed.

After reading this, we now have a better understanding why it is important to include post consumer recycled contents to our plastic bag making. It is kind of tricky because actually the more recycled content we put in the plastic bag, the thickner we have to make the bag due to the recycled plastic is not as stong as virgin plastic resin. So, worth to read this article to understand how it works and what really benefit the environment and eligible for get the LEED award.
Recycled-Content Plastic Trashcan Liners Specify the procurement of plastic trash can liners that meet the recycled-content requirements of the EPA guidelines, which require that liners have a minimum 10% postconsumer recycled content. Where possible, purchase locally manufactured recycled content liners to support the local recycling market and reduce transportation costs. When selecting trashcan liners, ensure that the liner is the correct size for the receptacle and of appropriate thickness. Consider using trashcan liners made from bio-based or renewable materials, or completely eliminate the use of trashcan liners to reduce plastic consumption and waste. If biodegradable or compostable liners are used, working with local recycling and waste-handling services will help ensure that bags are composted or disposed of so that they biodegrade in the landfill.
Welcome to the degradableplasticbag.com Our reason for creating jtrend-systems® and promote degradable plastic bags is simple: We insist to provide products, information and inspiration that help people reduce, re-use and recycle. Starting with the controlled-life plastic technology, a simple step of have an insurance coverage of the everyday plastic you use. This creates a "mindset" to make sure when we utilize the advantage of plastic material, we also act responsibly to prevent any pollution it may possible bring to our environment.
