DISPOSAL INSTRUCTIONS

To solve the Earth’s single-use plastic waste problem, we have developed a material that looks and behaves like plastic. However, upon contact with water, it dissolves and biodegrades. Unlike a typical plastic bag, which requires recycling at stores or other drop-off locations to properly be disposed of, this dissolvable bag can be disposed of at home through your water system! No elaborate process or chemical usage is needed - once you're done, simply place the bag in your washing machine, dishwasher, sink/basin, recycling bin, water bucket, or anywhere else you can submerge it in water.  If using a washing machine or dishwasher, we recommend placing the material in a reusable muslin bag prior to starting the cycle. 

The plastic will dissolve in a few minutes in water at ambient temperature, the warmer the water the quicker the material will dissolve. 

The dissolved plastic will go through the drainage system to a wastewater treatment plant, where it will fully biodegrade into CO2, H2O, and biomass that will break down safely in the environment. Some ink residue may be left behind; but, it is also safe to go into the drainage system.

 

*Alternatively, you can place the bag in a recycling bin and it will dissolve in the wash cycle of the recycling process and will not contaminate the recycled stream.
