Biodegradable, Reusable, and Recyclable

Made from environmentally friendly, recyclable HDPE material, this bag's algae-based additive makes the plastic recognizable as food to microbes, attracting them to the bag and assisting in decomposition. This allows it to fully break-down much faster than other bags, therefore lowering your carbon footprint!

Attractive Green Color

The attractive green color, along with the leafy design, is a step up from white plastic bags, while also demonstrating the bag's eco-friendliness. Measuring 12.5 microns thick, this 1/6 size bag should be kept in a dark storage area for best results.

Dual Handles

Great for carrying heavy items, the dual handles make this bag perfect for grocery stores, delis, take-out restaurants and more!

"Thank You" Message

With a thank you message written across the outside, your customers will know how much you appreciate their patronage.

    1 out of 1 found this review helpful

    We got the cheaper white Thank You tshirt bags as well just in case these didn't hold up or would rip easy. In the end these have worked great for us for months. Although they do cost a bit more than the cheaper, generic white thank you bags, we were pleased with the green and biodegradeable features as well as how well they stand up. They are still priced very reasonably and well worth the little extra cost. Our customers are also happy that we have a 'green' choice for our bags.

    These bags are fantastic. We aren't going to use them at a farm stand to sell fresh produce. They are extremely affordable and the plastic is strong.

    Great environmentally friendly alternative to regular plastic t shirt bags. At 500 a case they are affordable and will last a while. Recyclable and biodegradable and strong!

    from E Lou Coffee Posted on

    Great bags!

    I like them, they're good for the planet and that's the main reason I purchased them even if they were more on the expensive side.

    Posted on

    These are good quality bags that are more environmentally friendly. We try not to use plastic, but when necessary this is a good alternative. They are strong and do not rip.

    Easy to read the biodegradable notice on side

    These are great bags for just about anything. I was a little concerned that they might not be sealed on the bottom but these do not have any holes like the normal t-shirt bags do. I use these mainly in my 3 gallon simple human under cabinet trash can. I needed an alternative to the regular store bags that was more friendly for the environment. These are great. I will definitely buy again.

    Good size bag

    They are green & recyclable. The value that provides the customer is worth the slight increase over the normal T-Shirt bags. We've used these for years and really enjoy them!

    These work perfectly. Perfect bags for togo orders. People really like the fact that they are recyclable.

    These biodegradable plastic t-shirt bags are perfect for take out applications or any store or shop merchandise bag. These nice and sturdy, yet eco-friendly bags send the message that you care for the environment.

    We teach and practice reusing, repurposing, recycling and protecting our environment. Using these Biodegradable Plastic bags clearly represent our focus. We had been looking for a bag to use for our annual rummage sale that did not cause harm to the environment, what a find. Highly recommend everyone to use.

    These bags are a very affordable way to show that you care about the environment. They are stylish and informative, with the writing on the bag advertising your ethics!

    from Plan 9 Alehouse Posted on

    What I like most about these bags is that they are biodegradable for not much more cost. I like portraying my business as "green" to my customers. Also, when I deliver meals, these green bags stand out. Good size to pack two or three of these takeout containers: Southern Champion 762 7 3/4" x 5 1/2" x 1 7/8" ChampPak Retro Kraft Paper #2 Take-Out Container - 200/Case

    from The Elderberry Kitchen Posted on

    As an earth lover, id really hoped these bags would suffice. Unfortunately, if you put more than 2 items in the bag, it tends to get small rips. Im not sure if its the aluminum wrap that we wrap our food in or if the bag is just extremely thin. Will not be purchasing these again.

    We were looking for a more responsible bag without losing the little strength t shirt bags provide. These delivered with no noticible drop off in quality.

    from Galena River Wine & Cheese Posted on

    We look for ways to show we are green, or at least partially green. These bags are a great way to do that. They are cheap and highly visible since it's a bag . Winning

    I searched everywhere for biodegradable plastic shopping bags. I found them here, and these bags have exceeded my expectations. They are nicely sized & really durable. A+

    Posted on

    These bags are great! I've never had a biodegradable bag and didn't know what to expect, but they are very durable and feel like they would be able to hold more weight than the standard plastic bags we used to have. We like that they are environmentally friendly as well.

    from ShuBrew Posted on

    Love these bags, the color, and that they are biodegradable. We chose these as our new option over our brown paper bags. Won't hold things up like a paper bag, but for small items, it works.

    from Ivy Bakery Posted on

    We love these bags. They seem a little flimsy but hold four big boxes without issue. Haven't had any break. I love that they are disposable too.

    from Dinner's Almost Ready Posted on

    Great quality. Nothing is compromised to make them biodegradable. Similar in price as regular plastic bags. For a couple cents more you can feel better about using plastic bags and eco friendly people will love them as well

    Posted on

    We absolutely love these biodegradable plastic bags! They are perfect for bagging up our to go orders, and can hold quite a few to go boxes. We've had a lot of customers who have also commented on how much they love these bags.

    Posted on

    Perfect size bio degradeable bag that fits two large to go boxes. Couldn't be happier. Best price around and a case will last me forever.
