The ban of plastics in 17 states and union territories in India was welcomed by everyone, but although this ban was imposed with a vision of a greater good, it led to a slight inconvenience for consumers due to the unavailability of materials that could perform similar functions to plastics.
An inconvenience like this led to the innovation of plastic bags made with biodegradable raw materials.
A new way of protecting the environment.
29-year-old Mohammed Sadiq is a businessman and investor from Bangalore who launched a company on may 2017 named ”Biogreen Bags”. The specific innovative solution the business is doing for UN SDG’S is that the bags are made from natural starch, vegetable oil derivatives and vegetable waste. The products are non-toxic to the environment, animals, and plants. They aim to replace all disposable plastics with high quality, innovative products that lowers the dependence on oil and lowers the carbon footprint.
The bags are true alternatives to plastic and 100% organic. Unlike plastic garbage, the bags self decompose in 180 days and becomes manure for plants.
The products are created from vegetable waste. Improving quality of agriculture land and becomes quality manure after decomposing.
The product line consists of carry bags, garbage bags, straws, grocery covers, compostable spoons, forks, food bowls, food plates, food trays, food containers all of which are 100% compostable in nature.
The products are sold through both wholesalers and retailers. They sell the products online and offline channels. Household users can order the production bulk or through their website. This return increases their profit.
Biodegradable plastics can be decomposed by the action of living organisms usually microbes into water, carbon-dioxide and biomass.
The primary purpose of biodegradable plastics is to replace traditional plastics that persist in landfills and harm the environment. Therefore, the ability of microorganisms to break down these plastics is an incredible environmental advantage.
Despite the release of C02 into environment, biodegradable plastics leave a smaller footprint then petroleum-based plastics that accumulate in landfills and cause heavy pollution which is why they are explored as alternatives to traditional plastic.
