What’s the material options for plastic vest bags?

For most of the vest bags that used in supermarket or other shops, they are plastic. While with the ban on plastic bags and the growing awareness of environmental protection, more and more shops are using sustainable, biodegradable shopping bags. 

In next, I’d like to introduce the commonly used materials for the plastic vest bags and their advantage or disadvantage comparing to each other.

Half Degradable Material

Traditional Materia

Main Material

Corn Starch+ Fully Biodegradable resin

biodegradable material +PE




(because of non-PE content, so the tenacity is relatively low than ordinary plastic bags)



Degree of degradable

It can be completely degraded in a certain time without harmful residue

The degraded material will be degraded, but PE will remain

Not degraded and harmful to the environment


Smell likes food
