Green Genius: Review and Giveaway

Did you know that normal plastic bags never biodegrade?.

Green Genius is changing the face of trash bags and food storage! For those of you who still want the convenience of a throw-away snack bag, Green Genius is your eco-friendly go-to option. Their snack bags are identical to a regular Ziploc bag, but are biodegradable! Likewise, their trash bags hold up just as well as your regular trashbag but are much less harmful to our environment.

Why these trashbags are comparable to other brands:

  • They’re just as puncture resistant as national brands (3-ply strength, woohoo!).
  • They have our ridiculously strong drawstrings.
  • They’re priced the same as the national brands.
  • PLUS, they’re made from 40% recycled plastic.

How does anything biodegrade? The answer is microbes. They essentially “eat” all organic matter. They live in water. They live in soil. They also live deep in landfills. And they eat almost everything… except plastic.

Plastic was designed literally to last forever. Normal plastic is “inedible” to the microbe, which means that normal plastic pretty much never biodegrades.

At Green Genius, we believe this is a real problem. That’s why we invented a plastic bag that is edible by microbes.

Here’s how it works:

Step One: We combine our plastic with a proprietary additive called EcoPure that bonds organic “nutrients” to the plastic’s molecular structure. The addition of this additive allows the plastic to be eaten by microbes, making the whole bag biodegradable.

Step Two: When our plastic bag is disposed of in a microbe-rich environment, like a landfill, the microbes are attracted to the embedded “nutrients” and begin to colonize on the plastic.

Step Three: Microbes begin feeding on the nutrients, and the plastic begins to break down into simpler organic matter like sugars, fatty acids and amino acids.

Step Four: The bag is now entirely edible by microbes, which attracts even more microbes, and a feast ensues.

Step Five: Microbes continue to feed on the plastic until only the simplest organic matter remains — water, biogas (carbon dioxide and methane) and biomass (humus).
