Avani, a company in the Philippines, has developed an alternative to plastic bags that is truly biodegradable – and safe for animals to eat. Called Eco-Bags, the bags are made with cassava root mixed with vegetable oil, and are compostable and biodegradable. They can also be dissolved in less than 150 days when discarded in water. Avani aims to create a range of other eco-friendly products normally made with plastic, including takeout containers, disposable cups and plates.
