A Shopping Bag That Dissolves in Water? YES!
This is just great! Innovative, practical & realistic!
Puma recently took a step in the right direction & ditched its plastic shopping bags for a 100% bidegradable alternative made from cornstarch.
The new & improved bags are capable of completely degrading within just 3 months in a home compost pile. However, if shoppers do not have access to a compost pile or are not willing to wait for it to naturally degrade, the bag can also be completely dissovled in water in a matter of minutes! this replacement, according to Puma, will save 293 tons of paper & 192 tons of plastic each year.
Don't believe it? Watch the video below!
