A grocery bag that doesn’t use common plastics and it mixes with the cold water and disappear in less than a minute. It’s a new solution that this company in Qingyuan city of Guangdong Province has introduced this to erode white pollution.
“Three years ago we developed this water soluble bag after collaborating with a Guangzhou University. It’s made of PVA, a controversial material because of its biodegradability. But its water solubility makes it a perfect material for bags, which will do little harm to the environment,” said Lydia Li general manager of Polye Materials Company.
The company has show cased the new material bag at rubber and plastic exhibitions for years. Li says many clients abroad have expressed interest, yet cost remains a concern, as using such bags would double or even triple expenses for retailers.
“It’s an opportunity for us because they need an alternative to plastic bags. In fact, the challenge we face here is that China has not yet prohibited plastic bag usage, which makes it difficult for us to promote our product,” said Lydia Li general manager of Polye Materials Company.
