Plant-Based Poo Bags: Two BIG Misconceptions

1. Not truly plant-based

"Plant-based" poo bags sold today normally only have 20% - 30% plant material in them and still heavily rely on fossil fuels (PBAT).

2. Plant-based isn't always more eco-friendly & directly competes with human food production

The industrialised farming practices used to grow plants for plastic undercut its potential sustainability. Some life cycle analyses show plant-based plastic is the same, if not worse, than regular plastic (in terms of climate change, air pollution, eco-toxicity and energy use).

We don't think using vast amounts of land, water and chemicals to grow food crops for single-use plastic items can be considered sustainable. That's why we've created waste-based poo bags.

The Solution:

Waste-based poo bags avoid many of the short comings and pitfalls of "plant-based" bags.

Capturing and recycling existing waste into plastic is proven to cut carbon emissions, reduce existing pollution and decrease waste sent to landfill.

ReSEAcled Poop Bags are made from a unique blend of recycled plastic and oyster shell waste and fund the collection of one ocean-bound plastic bottle per bag.

The Better Renewable Resource

Oyster Shells vs Corn Starch

The farming practices used to grow corn-starch are highly industrialised and particularly water and chemical intensive. GMOs are also frequently tolerated, with many manufacturers and brands lacking proper certification to prove their GMO-free claims. What's more, significant quantities of land are required, which can drive deforestation and biodiversity loss.

In contrast, oysters can have a net positive environmental impact because oysters purify gallons of water daily, removing pollutants and sequestering carbon dioxide. Most importantly, the shell is a waste product. So unlike corn-starch, using oyster shells to make plastic does not directly compete with human food production and reduces existing waste that would otherwise be sent to landfill.
