A biodegradable, non-toxic and compostable bag that dissolves in hot water in seconds before your eyes

A sustainable packaging solution that eliminates the use of plastic polybags


Made of a water soluble and biodegradable combination of Polyvinyl Alcohol (known as PVA), starch, glycerin and water. It does not contain PP, PE, PS, or PVC plastic. These non-toxic bags have been independently verified to show no trace of any harmful elements and no estrogenic activity is released into the environment.


Certified compostable by the US standard ASTM D6400 and the EU Standard EN13432.


Under high-solids anaerobicdigestion conditions by ASTM D5511.


Dissolves in hot water 80 degrees or above in a couple of minutes. Slowly dissolves under a lower temperature.


Proven to be non-toxic and does not contain PP, PE, PS, PVC plastic; proven by the EEQ test and the FTIR analysis.


1. Either place the bag in a container and pour boiling water on top, or hold it out under a faucet running hot water. After a minute or so, it will have dissolved.

2. After the dissolution, you can pour the remaining liquid down the drain.

3. The wastewater will be treated at a sewage plant. After being consumed by microorganisms, it will completely break down to only carbon dioxide and water, with no formation of microplastics.

*Bags will also dissolve in cold or room temperature water, just at a slower rate.

*Before dissolving garment bags or mailer bags, please cut and dispose of the
adhesive tape strip.


The primary ingredient is Polyvinyl Alcohol (PVA). What is this exactly?

PVA is a water-soluble and biodegradable synthetic polymer. It was invented in the 1920s by German Scientists, Hermann and Haehne by hydrolyzing polyvinyl acetate in ethanol with potassium hydroxide. It was first industrially produced in Japan, and has mostly been used for medical purposes, embroidery, garment, personal applications, agricultural films and more since the 1960s, such as medicine capsules and laundry detergent pods.

What happens if the bag gets accidentally wet?

As these bags are water-soluble and hydrophilic, they should not be exposed to water of any kind. When it meets condensation or light drops of water, the bag will not break apart immediately, however, its tensile strength will slowly decrease. Although a small splash of water will not affect the carrying capacity, its appearance will look soft and wrinkled.

Does the bag have to be dissolved?

If you cannot dissolve it, you can dispose of it in your compost bin.
