Traditional plastic bags are an environmentally-destructive, outdated method of waste disposal, and of bagging technology in general. At beyondGREEN™ we want to provide you with an alternative, ecologically-efficient pet waste disposal method. The plastic in a common bag is derived from oil or natural gas, i.e. through the use of a non-renewable resource. The materials that make up a beyondGREEN™ bag are from extrusion-grade bioplastic and are a compound cereal flours and biodegradable polyesters. Plastic bags glut landfills for centuries before they degrade, and their production does not support cycling of resources. Additionally, most plastic bags contain color additives and chemicals that further pollute the environment. Our bags are made from biobased material: the ingredients that go into making one of our bags are naturally sourced, and can be produced again and again (through crop growing) without harming the environment. Finally, biobased materials return to nature, sustaining the renewable material life cycle, rather than polluting the environment with plastic byproducts.
