Biodegrada­ble bags

Several years ago I visited Samoa and everything I bought was put in a biodegrada­ble plastic bag. So, like Jim Pollard (Letters, Jul 20), I have wondered, might not supermarke­t bags be made from similar material? It seems odd that the biodegrada­ble bags I have seen weren’t clear like the current newspaper wrapping; they were translucen­t. Liz O’Callaghan Burwood
