Swag Bags @ 08:35 am

wire_tripper:
What are Swag Bags made out of? Is it some bio-friendly plastic? The reason for my asking is that my swag bags seem to have deteriorated. They were just kept in my desk cupboard, so they weren't exposeed to extreme conditions. Any wisdom to shed on my mystery?


The largest chunk still remaining.


My flakes.

It's not like they were really old either. One bag was over a year the other 7 months. I'm just curiuos because i've never seen any plastic do this before.

looks like one of the handles there in the first picture says 100% degradable. I'll have to look at mine when I get home. They're the same "ages" and in normal condition, though..

Oh, haha. I didn't even notice that. Probably most likely the case.

It looks like an animal got a hold of them, imo. But unless you have vermin that could get into said cupboard.... I dunno.

Mine is starting to do that too (I just grabbed it normally, and it ripped)... I'm afraid to touch it before it disintegrates. :(

Oh seriously if it gets any worse trash it. Once it falls apart the little flakes become sticky. They've spread throughout entire house and because they are sticky they are in my bed, shoes, clothing. It's ridiculous.

the very same thing happens with compost bags, so ya, they are just decomposing because of humidity and moisture. They're completely nature friendly, so just throw them into a compost container or on your lawn. :P
