Our Biodegradable Holders are the same as the Standard Range, only they have an additive added when we manufacture them, which breaks down the Plastic in normal day to day use. The Oxo-degradable additive uses sunlight and oxygen which activates the additive and starts to break down the plastic. With in 1-2 years the holders starts to degrade, and after 5-10 years it should have disintegrated completely. It’s very dependant on how you store and use your holder.
If you want to be even more earth friendly and reduce your carbon footprint you should have a look at our Compostable holders, these are made using plant extract like corn starch and do not contain any standard plastic.
Our degradable holders are available in the same range and colours as our standard range.
