the dirty truth
plain plastic and traditional poop bags labeled biodegradable are NOT made to biodegrade in a landfill environment.
but why? bags labeled biodegradable or degradable require UV (sunlight) and oxygen to break down which is not present in a landfill environment.
what about compostable bags? bags made from corn, sugarcane, and beet root are need to be processed in a commercial composting facility. this type of plastic requires high heat, nitrogen, water, and oxygen to break down. elements not present in a landfill environment.
