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
An eco-friendly Thanksgiving will enrich your family’s holiday experience, because you will know that you have made the world a little brighter by reducing your impact on the environment. And that’s something for which everyone can be thankful.
To make your Thanksgiving celebration as eco-friendly as possible, start with the three Rs of conservation: Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.
Reduce the amount of waste you produce by buying only as much as you need and choosing products that come in packaging that can be recycled.
Recycle paper, and all plastic, glass and aluminum containers. If you don’t already have a compost bin, use your Thanksgiving fruit and vegetable trimmings to start one. The compost will enrich the soil in your garden next spring.
Buying only locally grown food is one good way to have an eco-friendly Thanksgiving. Locally grown food is good for your table, your health and the environment. Locally grown food tastes better than food that has to be grown and packaged for maximum shelf life, and it requires less fuel to reach store shelves.
Using only organic food for your feast is another good eco-friendly Thanksgiving strategy. Organic fruits, vegetables and grains are grown without chemical pesticides and fertilizers; organic meat is produced without antibiotics and artificial hormones.
Skip the stressful holiday travel and celebrate an eco-friendly Thanksgiving at home.
If you must go over the river and through the woods, there are still ways to have an eco-friendly Thanksgiving. If you drive, use less fuel and lower your emissions by making sure your car is in good working order and your tires are properly inflated.
If you fly, consider purchasing carbon credits to offset your portion of the carbon dioxide emissions generated by your flight. A typical long-haul flight produces nearly four tons of carbon dioxide.
The original Thanksgiving was a neighborly affair. Having survived their first winter in America only through the generosity of the native people who lived nearby, the Pilgrims of Plymouth Rock celebrated a bountiful harvest with a three-day feast to give thanks to God and their Indian neighbors.
Your neighbors probably haven’t saved your life, but chances are they have done things to make your life easier or more enjoyable. Inviting them to share your eco-friendly Thanksgiving is an opportunity to say thank you, and also to reduce auto emissions by keeping more people off the road or ensuring shorter trips.
Trees absorb carbon dioxide—a greenhouse gas that contributes to the greenhouse effectand global warming—and give off oxygen in return. Planting one tree may not seem to make much difference in the face of global climate change, but small things do matter. In one year, the average tree absorbs roughly 26 pounds of carbon dioxide and returns enough oxygen to supply a family of four.
With a few simple supplies and a little imagination, you can make great eco-friendly Thanksgiving decorations and have a lot of fun in the process. Colored construction paper can be cut or folded into simple Pilgrim, turkey and harvest decorations. Later, the paper can be recycled.
Baker’s clay, made from common kitchen ingredients, can be shaped and molded into holiday figures and colored with non-toxic paints or food coloring. When my children were young, we used baker’s clay to make whimsical turkey, Pilgrim and Indian table decorations that drew compliments from our Thanksgiving guests for years.
9. Make it a Spiritual Day
The Pilgrims who celebrated the first Thanksgiving fled religious persecution in Europe to seek a better life in America. The Thanksgiving holiday was established to provide a national day of thanksgiving for all Americans. Even if you follow no particular religion, however, Thanksgiving is a good time to count your blessings, beginning with the many ways the natural environment sustains and enriches our lives.
As part of your eco-friendly Thanksgiving, make time for prayer, meditation, reflection, or perhaps just a walk in the woods to contemplate and give thanks for the wonders of nature.
10. Say Thank You
Whatever else you do on Thanksgiving, make it a time to say thank you to the people in your life who matter most and, if possible, to spend time in their company. Life is short, it is the moments that count most, and many of the best moments in life are those spent with friends and family.
If distance or circumstances prevent you from spending Thanksgiving with some of the people you love, call, email or write them a letter (on recycled paper) to tell them why they mean so much to you and how they make your world a better place.
You must watch this video we recently created, it embedded the best country music we have heard recently, and when you listen to it, you will be brought to a new world to convince to get closer to the nature, it a 100% heart-touched music.
We now encourage everyone to take a look at where you live, look at the mountains, the ocean, rivers, and forests. Some animals were trapped by plastic waste, and ban plastic is not a solution, the solution is to give plastic a controlled safe service life, make them degrade naturally in any environment when the plastic are not disposed in the usual disposal stream.
Don't be afraid about the add-on cost, because the add-on cost is too small to be considered compared to any plastic polution or any wildlife that may be taken their life away. Biodegradable is affordable when people really work together and consider it as "necessary", it's like a iphone, when only 1 people buys it, it might be a million dollar, but within more than one million people buy it, then the cost can go down to $300. what a saving!

Working as a marketing leader in a GO GREEN company (J-Trend Systems, Inc.) is not always easy, because everytime when a customer complains to me, "why it's so hard to go green; what's the benefit of GO GREEN, why do I need to spend more", I am getting a bit upset and now after so many times, I have been working with my team and people to devote time to think about how to "be innovative" and "go green", and at the same time, achieve cost saving = low cost leadership. This is what my mom told me, the good products need to be greener, cheaper, and better to use.
Here is our rule:
Of course, more development on our innovative low cost products are still under progress and we pull an effort to get things done through green consumers from all over the world, please feel free to write to us, and let's work together for the best GO GREEN products. BRAVO!!!
3R: reuse, reduce, recycle: this is a well-known environment topics, recycling and saving the earth's precious resources.
Reuse: Many items can be used for different purposes. So before you throw items away, everyone should think about how these items can be reused. For example, reuse retail carrier bags as bin liners; send the old stuffs to any of your friend or family that may need them; reuse the drink glass as plant jar; reuse the scratch paper again and stape them together for personal organizer purpose.
Reduce: some people tend to be too wasteful, when you can use one to do the job, why some people use two? reduce is important and is part of the courtesy of chinese and japanese culture that we should cherish what we have and reduce the garbages and reuse stuffs again and again, and reduce the way to consume earth resources.
Recycle: how to properly recycle stuffs, everyone should try to understand how to best rexcycle stuffs and comply to community recycling activities and policies. It is just a habit to make that everyone should at least give it at try to improve the way we live. Some of the people create a lot of garbages, but if they can learn to recycle them, then we will have more recycled material source for our life.
oxo biodegradable plastic products can be reused, recycled and also reduce plastic waste.

This is our newst video sharing posted on YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook. We wish to share with our customers about how we started this green business. We wish to provide an alternative and solution to the plastics that get into the environment, such as ocean, roads, rivers, and forest. Has anyone thought of even if you make the bag "biodegradable", it is not going to resolve the plastic pollution. Reason 1, the plastic bags that were thrown into the ocean and leaving in the environment uncollected will just be there; Reason 2, biodegradable or the compostable bags will not self construct naturally, they have to be moved to the compost facilities which is irrelevant to the disposable items leaving and flowing on the ocean.
Making the plastic self construct to protect our environment and anaimals, this concept is quite self-explainatory, because it is like getting an insurance for the disposable bags, containers, and cups we use. How if, how if, they do not get into the conventional disposal stream, such as recycling, inciniration, compost, and landfill - they will still break down into small fragments, and then become a totally different structure that can be bio-assimilated. Some of my friends and family concern about will they be still strong and durable to use. Definately yes, before they start to decompose, they are just as strong as ordinary plastics you use everyday and you see in every type of products that require packaging.
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.
