*Biodegrades in one to five years. California currently prohibits labeling any plastic product as biodegradable.
¹The additive used in our biodegradable film has been tested by independent laboratories in accordance with standard test methods approved by ASTM, ISO, and other such standardization bodies, and has been approved for marketing as biodegradable and safe for the environment. This product does not meet ASTM D6400-04, which is specifically for the labeling of plastics designed to be composted in municipal and industrial aerobic composting facilities.
²Our recycled film is made with pre-consumer recycled bag material.
³Exceeds EPA Clean Air Act requirements which defines acceptable emissions levels of certain pollutants. More information on these air quality standards can be found on the US EPA website at http://epa.gov.
