Product Overview

Pack of 1000 Bio-degradable bags (With a self seal adhesive fixing strip for quick and easy sealing)to fit ourC6 size envelope .

At last a 'Green' clear display bag for putting your finished cards in for resale.

These bags are made in the UK from film that has been accredited to ‘OK biobased’ and  DIN EN 13432. They are made from annually renewable PLA derived from corn or similar starches (potato etc.) and are fully biodegradable and compostable, breaking down to CO2 and H2O.

Ideal for greetings cards bio-bags are barely distinguishable from their polypropylene equivalents, offering similar clarity, rigidity and protection. However they are slightly less robust - if used for bulky items they will show white marks if you crumple them up. So they are not strong enough for very heavy items.

If you need to use clear packaging for your cards these bags are as green as you can get.

SHELF LIFE:
In normal conditions bio-film bags are quite stable - they may well take years to start degrading. (Our supplier has kept some of the first batch they made from about five years ago and they are still OK. Until they start to degrade we don't have a definitive time scale.)

The main thing to avoid is prolonged exposure to humidity - avoiding excessive heat, moisture and light will maximise shelf life.
(If a bag is splashed with water they don't start to degrade immediately. If wiped off straight away they should come to no harm.)

BIODEGRADATION INFO: 
All our biofilm (and cellophane) bags are fully biodegradable which means that they break down to CO2 and water which can then be reused in the eco system to make new plants. This will happen in either in home or commercial composting or landfill. They will still break down to CO2 and water but in commercial composting the temperature will be higher and the process is much quicker. In a colder home composter it will just take longer.

Customer Questions
Are your bags suitable for original artworks, prints, lino-cuts?

They are designed for use with greetings cards and many of our customers use them for putting artwork in.
However we would not recommend them for archival use or with valuable paintings as we cannot guarantee them to be 'acid free'. So for such applications our bag manufacturers would recommend the use of polyprop bags instead.

Samples products are free but there is a small charge for delivery unless included with an order.

This is £1+VAT for UK customers.

You can have a maximum of 5 Samples per order.

Unfortunately we are currently unable to provide samples outside the UK. 

Recycled paper will vary between batches, we can't guarantee samples will match the next batch. Batches normally last 1 to 2 weeks.
