We now have the science to make True Cellulose Food Bags which are 100% biodegradable and 100% compostable. These True Cellulose Bags are based on the most naturally abundant organic material - cellulose, derived from wood pulp.
Are you buying real Cellulose bags which are 100% biodegradable?
Did you know that most food bags advertised as "Cello bags" are made of plastic (usually BOPP or polyethelene)
Cello has become a generic name for clear-film bags. Originally when first invented they were 100% biodegradable, made completely of cellulose fibres. However, due to lack of science at the time, they were quite fragile and often crumbled or 'degraded' in the heat and sun.
TrueCellulose bags are:
thick like their plastic counterparts but have a flexibility and give to accommodate rigidity of some products
resistant to grease, oil and fats
microwave and oven safe to 195Celcius
can be heat sealed
certified biodegradble and compostable (ASTM D6400 & EN13432)
will decompose in your own backyard compost in a matter of weeks
