These terms are often mind-boggling. And when it comes to plastic bags, the common perspective is—“environmentally harmless”.
Well, both have a distinctive meaning at bottom.
As we are turning more towards being nature enthusiasts, here is the difference we need to know—
If the label on your bag says biodegradable, it is decomposable by living organisms.
All biodegradable plastics are not compostable, but compostable products are biodegradable.
The reason being compostable bags needs ‘correct conditions’ to convert into compost.
Compostable product breaks down into water, carbon dioxide, and biomass.
Whereas biodegradable plastics convert into nanoparticles over time.
Is your plastic bag biodegradable or compostable? Are you a smart plastic user?
