Cassava is an excellent material because of it’s abundance in less developed countries. Also, because it grows extremely quickly, with little effort and is indigenious to less developed countries, It provides a good source of income as a cash crop for local communities.

With our solution, when you have finished with the bag, It’s returns back to nature naturally, wherever it goes.
The bag you bought that says fully recyclable or compostable only tells half story.
The truth, is these bags only biodegrade under specific conditions in an Industrial Composting Units.
If your council doesn’t have such a facility (most don’t) or most likely you bag ends up in landfill. Then your so-called ‘green’ bag isn’t much better than a standard plastic bag.
Our 'cassava' bags are a natural product and here a few tips to get the best from them:
Don't Overload - our bags have about 90% strength of a regular oil based plastic bag. Therefore avoid 'overloading' them.
Storage - keep them dry and away from places with insects. Because they are a natural product, insects consider them as food.
Usage - typically our bags can be used a couple of times or more, if they have not been overloaded. Because they are a natural product, they will not last as long as regular oil-based plastic bag. But that is a good thing, right?
Rain Exposure - light rain exposure is fine, provided the bag has not been overloaded. It will stretch a little, but will spring back to shape, once dried.
Life Expectancy - after purchase, provided the bag is kept in dry conditions and not exposed to light, they will last years.
