The Plastic Bag Solution aims to decrease the number of plastic bags left in areas such as landfills and water sources to decompose, leech toxins into the environment, and destroy natural landscapes. The organization produces a compostable bag made from a renewable blend of BPI-certified organic polymers including corn and potato starch. They naturally decompose the same way a potato would, but are as durable and waterproof as a plastic bag. The Plastic Bag Solution distributes these bags as a sustainable alternative to petroleum-based bags and raises awareness about the dangers of plastic-bag waste through community green events, lectures, and advocacy among local politicians. Staff members also show their dedication to the health of the environment by attending all of their meetings by bike.
