Plastic bags are very common, everywhere we go shopping we find ourselves returning with a handful of plastic bags. In Thailand, even a small item is put in a plastic bag. Different kinds of products need a bag of its own. Heavier items might need a couple of bags on top of it.

Each year, we use about 1,000 billion plastic bags or 32,000 bags per minute. Each bag takes hundreds of years to decompose, resulting in a waste issue that we all know about. This is an endless cycle, even though we are issuing oxo-biodegradable plastic bags, it still takes 1-2 years, this helps, but plastic bags are very essential in our lives.

Advance BIO determines to help save the earth by making plastic as eco-friendly as possible. The product is a natural innovation that can help our world and fit perfectly in everyday life. The lesser time to degrade; the less waste to our planet. Advance BIO’s plastic can degrade over time with the right amount of exposure such as UV, heat, humidity, and wind. The internal structure would degrade naturally by allowing microorganisms to consume the molecules inside. This process only takes up to 5 years instead of 500 years of traditional plastic which makes a significant impact to the environment.
