When you think of a plastic bread bag it's typically an artificial material made with brown paper. Innovia Films combines plastic and paper in a 100% compostable bread bag for bakery goods. The plastic window is cultivated from a material called NatureFlex, which is a transparent cellulose film made from sustainable wood pulp.

It's refreshing to see that eco-friendly materials that are made from plants are replacing plastic. This means when disposing the bag, it has a shorter shelf life, causing it to break down and compost with other organic materials. The result is less waste in landfills and less chemical production in factories to produce plastic.

This also means that this bread bag is contributing to a greater environmental cause without sacrificing the look and feel of the material.
