1 Million Plastic Bags Per Minute
The world is consuming a staggering 500+ Billion plastic bags per year
In just a single generation (roughly from 1940 to the present), we've created massive environmental problems such as crowded landfills, groundwater contamination and ocean debris that future generations will still be cleaning up
Only around 1 in 200 bags is being recycled. The remainder are burried in landfill or incinerated - or are carelessly discarded into the environment causing great harm
Single-use plastic bags come in various forms, including traditional grocery and shopping bags but are also extensively used in industry and commerce, including Jewellery manufacture, wholesale and retailing
Being Humanity is our initiative to help the Jewellery industry in doing its part to reduce the humungous volumes of plastic waste accumulation by promoting the use of HOME compostable plastc bags which will typically breakdown within months of being discarded

WHAT IS HOME COMPOSTABLE PACKAGING?
The term refers to products that will breakdown in properly operating home compost bins, to leave no trace. In the presence of moisture, air and heat generated by microbes the decomposition of organic matter - including our HOME compostable plastic bags - hastens to as little as a few months.
Businesses that dispose of HOME compostable plastic bags with their normal waste which goes to landfill, can rest easy in that the bags will breakdown in a similar but slower process of about one year.
Bags certified to the INDUSTRIAL compost standard require commercial processing in specialised facilities in order to be composted. HOME compostable products meet a higher standard of compostability and are therefore superior in their eco-credentials.
The film used in our bags is certified HOME compostable.
