With the increasing usage of disposable plastic items in our busy societies, there has arisen a large problem of how to dispose of these items.  Plastic waste is accumulating year after year at a rate of about 300 million tonnes per year.  Only about 10% is recycled.  This is resulting in a vast accumulation of plastic waste. Why do we think it is ok to use a plastic item for just a few minutes then throw it away where it can last for 100’s of years? Almost all of it goes to landfill so that is why it makes the most sense to use a method that allows the plastic to biodegrade away there. 

These biodegradable plastics will biodegrade down to organic material when disposed to a microbe-rich environment such as a landfill or commercial compost facility. Our plastics are called ‘landfill biodegradable’. They can also be main-stream recycled.  It is actually encouraged. Either way, you are not leaving that plastic to last 100’s of years for future generations to deal with. 

Currently, approximately 90% of plastic waste goes to a landfill.  This then is where the product should be designed to biodegrade.

No one plastic type can solve all our disposable issues.  Avoidance and reusing are the best actions, but this is the next best thing!

The bulk food bags are handy to use when you would like to top up half-filled containers at home.  This means you no longer need to stock up on extra jars and containers on top of your current ones to use as “top up” containers, as our bulk food bags give you a light and compact way to top up as you need.

ONYA love diverting existing waste from landfill which is why our bulk food bags are made from BPA free, food-safe recycled plastic drink bottles.

Each of the bulk food bags features the tare weight of the bag in both ounces and grams and they also have a clear window made of non-toxic, BPA & chlorine free PEVA.  This window allows you to not only easily see what is inside your bag, but you can also write in that window the product, as well as any unique codes you may need when checking out. We recommend a coloured wax pencil or whiteboard marker only as permanent marker can be very difficult to remove. The window especially helpful when distinguishing products such as Self Raising and Plain Flour that otherwise look identical.

Please note: The goal for our reusable bulk bags is to be able help people easily and conveniently transport their bulk food purchases home. The bags have been designed as a lightweight top up tool to replace the need for carrying jars and canisters when doing your shopping, and when you bring them home you should empty the contents into your storage jars and containers.

Although made from recycled plastic drink bottles and technically plastic, the rPET material that makes our bags is woven in nature not solid state plastic like a single-use plastic bag which is non-permeable for air and water.

Because of the woven nature of the fabric, a solid state plastic bag will definitely prevent air from reaching the bulk food products better than our bulk bags will when storing your bulk food products. Things like pasta hold well in them, but things that rely on freshness are better stored in an airtight container.

ONYA bulk bags are at their best when used to carry home your bulk food dry goods and transfer the contents to your bulk food storage jars and containers to ensure freshness.

 A note on our packaging: ONYA's commitment to sustainability extends to their packaging which is made from post-consumer recycled material and printed with water based inks so it is suitable for both recycling and composting
