it does sound very interesting but it does not say


anything about pricing of the bags and who will
eat up the cost of the bags. will a person
shopping in a store have to purchase the bay and
can it be reused how many times. How durable is
it like at the Wal-Marts the blue bags they have
are wonderful I dont know what they are made
of but they are very durable you can even wash

them and hang them out to dry is what I do and


reuse them. now you have to purchase things
from Walmart so they are not free but they are
worth it and all these has bags to that are just as
great you buy them and you can use them just
about forever no plastic

Yes it does mention pricing is just a little
more than plastic, but does that matter to
the 100,000 creatures killed per year by
plastic bags?
What do you mean by ending with no
plastics.

This is wonderful news. Finally. Thank you so
much for inventing these! Please bring them to
Canada as quickly as you can!

These bags sound wonderful! I hope they come to
San Francisco, California. I do use cloth shopping
bags when I think ahead, but it would be terric

to have a biodegradable plastic both for shopping


in the rain and shopping at a store when I do not
have my cloth bags with me.

Re the commenter praising Walmart bags, I would


never shop at Walmart. To quote the Corporate
Research Project, Walmart has been at the
center of controversies over its low wages,
overtime pay abuses, meager employee benets,
gender discrimination, negative impact on small
business, immense dealings with China, tax
avoidance and much more. Their union-busting
practices border on human rights violations.

Great comment, Bonnie Knight. I


absolutely agree.

Goodness Thailand needs these and in small
sizes to put all the food and sauces you get at the
local food/meal market. What if hot liquid curry
was put in them? Will they melt or biodegrade too
quickly before I get home to eat it. Thinking
positive- really want them to be a viable
alternative- thanks for trying
