Biodegradable bubble wrap is made from a formulation containing a mixture of a non hazardous metal ion pro-oxidant system and a biodegradation initiator. Basically, this bubble wrap will enable microbial colonies to break it down over time. Don’t worry, this doesn’t happen straight away ! You wont open your box and find a pile of green mush! The process of degradation is accelerated in higher temperatures and high UV levels which can take up to two years to begin. This material is the same used in retail carrier bags and is now found in a broad range of polyethylene based products. It is very clever stuff and helps prevent our landfill sites being filled with polythene products that will take thousands of years to degrade!.
This product must still be recycled responsibly
