In a world filled with a growing dislike for plastic products, here at Shirlplass we strive to ensure we do all we can to ensure our impact on the environment is as little as possible. Not only do we push the fact that ALL the LDPE products we make are 100% RECYCLABLE, we are now pleased to announce our Bioplass material, which is a great alternative for someone looking to go green. Bioplass is a platicicizer-free, thermoplastic bio-resin and is a potato starch based polymer. Bags and films made of Bioplass are completely biodegradable and compostable (limitations on time / thickness apply). 

Bioplass films are compliant to the European industrial composting standard EN13432, meaning that they disintegrate by 90 percent within 12 weeks and biodegrade by 90 percent to water, carbon dioxide and biomass within 180 days. The materials have also been tested and proved to be non-toxic to both soil and plant life.

Bioplass is industrial compostable certified up to 185 microns.
