We've switched to Eco Bags from Avani in Bali.

Avani Eco Bags at Island Organics Bali

 

Avani is social enterprise based in Bali, Indonesia, the epicenter of the battle against plastic waste. Assumed by most as a tropical island paradise with pristine white sand beaches, the truth is that Bali's beaches are now often saturated with garbage and debris, and the majority of this trash is plastic. We aim to help rehabilitate the island by offering sustainable, eco-friendly alternatives to hazardous products that locals and tourists use every day.

Avani Eco Bags are the perfect solution to the single use plastic bag problem. They look, feel and perform like plastic but are made from cassava root and all natural resins, making them 100% compostable unlike other biodegradable alternatives. 

Our bags are food safe and harmless to animal consumption. They biodegrade within 90 days adding biomass to your compost. Our eco bags can be recycled with paper and have various applications; bio-based shopping bags, poly-bags, garbage bags, and general packaging.
