Plant-Based, Home Compostable Bags for a Cleaner and Better Future

While sustainability continues to be a growing concern amongst consumers, New Jersey-based PlasTechFree, Inc. announces the launch of its Certified Home Compostable, plant-based bags that biodegrade, leaving only rich nutrients in the soil within 180 days. While competitors continue to mislead consumers with greenwashing tactics, PlasTechFree’s unique and innovative technology provides consumers with a true alternative to single-use plastic bags. Their line features several products, including single-use and reusable bags, kitchen compost bin bags, and diaper disposal and pet waste bags, all of which are now available for purchase on their website. PlasTechFree also produces Plant-Based Compostable bags for the Cannabis industry, the Garment industry, and many others.

“We understand the heightened skepticism behind branded ‘eco-friendly’ and ‘biodegradable’ products as greenwashing is so pertinent in today’s market,” says Mark Nathan, CEO and co-founder of PlasTechFree. “While anything can be biodegradable, it just may take a few hundred-thousand years, not everything is compostable. Our entire line of products is truly compostable and safe for the environment, and we are confident consumers will warmly embrace these new products as they look to support the environment in a real and meaningful manner.”

As states and municipalities increasingly ban single-use plastic bags, consumers are inundated with an abundance of plastic reusable bags, inadvertently creating a new problem for the future without effectively addressing the primary issue. Consumers want a solution, and PlasTechFree’s products provide everyday products that are high-quality and support sustainability. 

Gene Benfatti, President and co-founder of PlasTechFree, adds, “In a world saturated with misleading ‘plastic-free’ claims and deceiving labels, PlasTechFree is proud to deliver a line of products that consumers can now reasonably and safely use to meet their needs while eliminating the problem associated with plastic.”

“Our hope,” he adds, “is that consumers will become more educated about products that truly are 100% plastic-free and select those that solve this increasingly complex and dangerous problem.”

The first five products available for purchase online by PlasTechFree include: 

  • Single-Use Bags – The eco-conscious answer to all single-use plastic bags. Crafted entirely from plant-based materials, these bags biodegrade within 180 days when disposed of in your own home compost. Just like with all PlasTechFree’s bags, they look, feel, and act just like plastic bags but contain ZERO plastics, leaving no micro or nano plastics behind. A true win.
  • Reusable Antimicrobial Bags – The eco-conscious answer to all reusable plastic bags. Each bag can endure up to 125 uses, hold up to 22lbs, and features a built-in patent pending antimicrobial agent, ensuring a minimum of 99% protection against the transfer of germs, viruses, surface mold, bacteria, and odors. These Home Compostable bags biodegrade within 180 days when composted.
  • Kitchen Counter Compost Bin Bags – Designed to be robust, leak-proof, and BPA-free, ensuring a hassle-free composting experience. Effortlessly opens and securely seals when tied, these bags make composting easy and environmentally responsible, transforming your kitchen scraps into nourishment for your garden.
  • Pet Waste Disposal Bags – A replacement for plastic pet waste bags, these plant-based, compostable, and biodegradable bags break down naturally and can be safely thrown into your garbage, promoting more sustainable waste management practices. These bags fit perfectly into any standard portable dispenser while you’re on the go. *If you choose to use the used bag in your home compost, use the resulting compost for non-food plants only.* 
  • Diaper Waste Disposal Bags – A replacement for diaper waste plastic bags, these bags reduce the need for synthetic fertilizers and pesticides needed when breaking down waste and plastic, thus promoting more sustainable agricultural practices. These bags fit perfectly into any standard portable dispenser while you’re on the go. 

PlasTechFree, Inc. was founded by Nathan and Benfatti, two successful entrepreneurs who understand both today’s market needs and the role of technology in delivering top-quality products that will finally allow consumers to replace plastic-made products with plant-based, compostable products. PlasTechFree further added that they are continuing to roll out additional products.

PlasTechFree products are available for purchase on their website. To learn more about PlasTechFree, Inc., visit the website or follow along on the journey to creating a sustainable future on their socials: Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter.
