Restaurants are notorious for producing a lot of trash. Although composting and recycling can reduce the amount of trash a restaurant actually sends to the landfill, there is still a good deal of waste leftover that needs to be controlled and contained. Biodegradable bags are a great way to do so. There are also biodegradable bags for grocery stores and retailers. For those grocery stores or retail stores out there, grocery sacks are a known harm to the environment. Since plastic bags are made from harmful petroleum products, last for years and contaminate eco systems everywhere, biodegradable bags are a great alternative. They are available in several sizes. The reusable shopping bag has handles and a flat bottom for added structure and support, great for department stores or other retailers.
