    Direct sunlight works a treat to decompose plastic bags.

    Why were they called biodegradable at all in the first place? Sounds like a fraud

    I am enraged with governments who are deliberately closing their eyes to yet another fairytale by big corporations. When is this going to be taken seriously?

    I've noticed the same thing with 'compostable' magazine wrappers - still intact after more than a year. I'm glad the Guardian has switched to paper.
