    I was very excited when my mother showed me one of your products. I designed and teach an environmental programme in primary schools about the effect of plastic consumption on the environment, and one of our case studies is plastic bag use. I am very interested in the way your products break down. You state that they eventually degrade into CO2 and H2O. I would like to know who did the research on this chemical process and how the experimentation was carried out? How do your products maintain their waterproof-ness? Love what your doing.
    Kind regards

  2. Hi Jane,
    It’s great kids are learning about the importance of sustainability in schools. Unfortunately, with the range of marketing claims about degradable & bio-degradable products, it can be really confusing to choose the right environmental solution.

    Our bags are derived from corn starch, (E.g. normal corn) so they are truly bio-degradable. They are also Australian certified which means they have passed a number of scientific tests.

    In the two links below there is information about our liners in which we have tried to simplify the science and have also outlined the tests. There are also some pictures included which should assist with your overview.

    In addition, depending on your location, some organic processing facilities do run school programs in which the kids can visit and see the waste (and our liners) being composted. Alternatively, their websites are also a great source of info and pictures.

    Let me know if you need anything else. My direct email is melanie@sourceseparationsystems.com.au
