Green Planet Media distributes 100% compostable t-shirt bags to restaurants and grocery stores, at a reduced cost, for daily usage by its consumers. Offers retailers the dual benefit of eliminating the need to purchase environmentally harmful plastic bags as well as enhancing their bottom line via cost savings.
Bags offer prime advertising space for advertisers seeking to maximize their brand exposure in niche markets while also showcasing their commitment to the environment. By taking part in this movement to eliminate plastic waste, every business has the opportunity to take a lead in the green movement, make efficient use of its promotional funds, and reach out on a grand scale to a widespread consumer market.
Currently, nearly 380 billion plastic bags are used in the United States annually. The manufacturing of 380 billion plastic bags requires approximately 12 million barrels of oil to produce. While only 1% of all plastic bags in the United States are recycled by consumers.
Tragically, thousands of marine mammals and more than 1 million birds die each year as a result of plastic waste littering our oceans, rivers, and lakes. In fact, the United Nations Environment Program estimates that there are 46,000 pieces of plastic litter floating in every square mile of ocean. That is simply unacceptable!
Our bags are 100% compostable and meet all certifications required for ASTM 6400 composting standards and have been certified by BPI, as well as Cedar Grove Composting. Made from organic polymers with Nature Works PLA and printed with vegetable based ink. If sent to a composting facility our Ads to Nature bags will decompose within 10 to 45 days and if left in the environment they will naturally decompose similar to banana, orange or apple peels.
