Sunchips® - Plant Based Plastic Bags and Soon to be Compostable Bags !!

SunChips - made by Frito Lay - is committed to lessening their impact on the planet ... in this example they are addressing packaging.

Their new bags are made with plant based plastic and by next year then plan to have a fully compostable bag ... 14 weeks in a well tended compost pile and it is ... compost !!

" ... we dream of a world with less waste ... we knew we had to create a better bag. ... found the answer in nature ... 33% of every 10 1/2 oz. size SunChips® bag is made with renewable, plant based materials. ... first step to reduce the amount of non–renewable materials we use for packaging."

"... in 2010, we plan to introduce the first fully compostable chip bag of its kind. ... are designed to fully decompose in about 14 weeks when placed in a hot, active compost bin or pile."
