Solubag - solution of the plastic crisis
The main goal of Solubag material is to completely eliminate all single-use plastic bags. We use 5 trillions (5 000 000 000 000) of these single-use plastic bags every year. 70 % of those end up in our environment. 350 million end up in the land where they will slowly decompose for the next 500 years.
We can show you several alarming figures
10 to 20 million tons of plastic waste end up in the oceans each year, which significantly threatens life both underwater and on land. Currently, approximately 300 million tons of plastics are produced annually. Unfortunately, the plastics are so widespread that recycling systems can't cope with their recycling. According to the UN, more plastics than fish will be found in the oceans by 2050.
Ever-growing piles of garbage
The floating islands of garbage in the oceans, that have already reached the size of half of the European continent, are a huge ecological burden for our planet, and they are having a disastrous impact on the whole ecosystem. A part of this garbage are plastic bags and small plastic bags. Pictures of animals suffocated by plastic bags, wrapped up in plastic fibers or ropes, or animals that die due to hunger because their stomach is full of plastic pieces are day-to-day reality.
Nearly a quarter of a million tons of plastics are thrown out annually in the Czech Republic and their volume increases every year. The Ministry of the Environment is appealing to companies to reduce plastics (iRozhlas).
Micro- plastics are now not only "microdangers"
day, a pile of plastic waste is added to our planet, which does not decompose
but breaks down into micro-plastics. These micro-plastics are ingested into the
bodies of the animals that we eat, contaminate our drinking water and destroy
life in the oceans and on land. Scientists are not yet sure how much damage
they can do in the human body. But the fact is that plastics are a huge burden for
the ecosystem and hence a danger to humans. You can read more about the problem here.
Solubag is the solution
Solubag offers a revolutionary solution - non-plastic bags and bags made of non-woven fabric that dissolve in water. Non-plastic Solubags do not pollute the environment. They can be dissolved in either cold or hot water in just 5 minutes and leaving behind only the substances that are naturally found in nature. They have the same or bigger load capacity than plastic bags and small plastic bags. No special equipment is needed for their production - they can be produced in the same machines as existing flexible plastic foils. You can simply replace the plastic granules with the raw material Solubag.
Hope comes from Chile
Solubag is a material which comes from Chile, where the government has banned all plastic bags and small plastic bags, violating this prohibition is punishable by a fine. That is why Chilean researchers have developed a new material, which contains non-oil polyvinyl alcohol (PVA). The same substance is also used to coat vitamins or medical tablets, and this material is harmless to human health.
Ecological, practical and with a vision for a better future
Solubag bags can be dissolved in water within a few minutes without any
contamination, unlike plastic bags that decompose in 150-500 years. Solubag non-plastic
bags and small non-plastic bags are environmentally friendly. The customer who
uses Solubag decides when to dispose of the non-plastic bag or small non-plastic
Consumers are calling for a change - give it to them
Social opinion is increasingly leaning towards organic production, and people are beginning to realize the responsibility of each individual and company in the struggle for a sustainable planet. Therefore, the inventors of Solubag are still working on the development of this material, which could one day be an ecological variant of existing garbage bags, crates, medical equipment, food containers or disposable dishes. You can take responsibility for future generations today. Replace plastic, so-called bioplastic, paper and cotton bags with Solubag bags. Contribute to saving the environment.
