Growing concern regarding environmental protection by reducing the use of plastic bags has led to an increased adoption of bioplastic carrier bags. Bioplastic carrier bags serves as a valued alternative to fossil-based plastic carrier bags. Bioplastic carrier bags are manufactured partially or entirely from agricultural feedstock such as sugar cane, corn, potatoes, wheat and others through chemical and biotechnological processes. Use of renewable resources helps in saving up the scarce fossil resources. Bio-plastic carrier bags contain less carbon footprint as compared to conventional plastic bags. Bioplastic bags are available in various sizes, shapes, and thickness. Bio-plastic carrier bags are gaining widespread adoption across the globe because of its advantages over fossil-based plastic bags.
