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
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.

Walk down any aisle of any grocery store anywhere in the world and you will be surrounded by plastic products that improve the quality of our life – shampoo and laundry detergent bottles, bread bags, cookie and candy packaging, milk jugs, mustard, vinegar, spices and other condiment containers, produce bags, meat, fish and cheese packaging, paper towel and bathroom tissue packaging, and on and on and on. What about all these plastic products? Don’t they also represent potential plastic pollution?
Or have we conveniently ignored all these other plastic products that we find so useful every day?
The reality is that plastic products are deeply embedded in our everyday lives and there is no viable substitute on the horizon. As a result plastic products will continue to be an integral part of our lives for the foreseeable future. But plastic bags represent just a very small part of a much larger concern.
When plastic products have served their useful purpose, like most items that are considered to be “garbage” they end up in landfill sites mixed with other garbage. Much of this garbage is contained in traditional plastic garbage bags which may take hundreds of years to break down, entrapping their contents and preventing them from breaking down as well, and clogging our limited landfill space as a result. In reality these garbage bags represent a much bigger problem than plastic carrier bags. Fortunately there is a solution. (epi-global website)
To test oxo biodegradable plastic products is not an easy job because when its been made, you can not tell any difference from ordinary plastics, so it is important to have standard operation process to prepare for the testing process.
Firstly, we start the small scale trial production of around 100~500KG conventional plastics finished goods, and at the end of this production run, we add oxo biodegradable additives which is specially formulated and designed that tailors to the product application we wish to produce. By doing conventional and degradable samples in the same production run, we will make sure all factors have been controlled, so we have "controlled samples" and "degradable samples".
Secondly, we do some simple sampling process and collect the equivalent amount of samples of each type(usually 500g~1000g) depend on the production type, and then send to lab for testing to see whether the physical properties have been affected and whether the degradation start as planned (ASTM D6954-04)
Finally, usually we need to wait for around 30~60 working days for the aging test (QUV and thermal), so here you go the summary of our test reports. Generally, every application trial takes 3~6 months to develop, and so far we have more than 100 application trials.
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.
