BIODEGRADABLE PACKETS ARE THE WAY TO GO
A HILTON woman, Hayley Gray, recently launched her Going Green project where she encourages stores to change from the normal plastics to her biodegradable bags that she says dissolve within two minutes in hot water.
“If the packet does not melt in hot water it’s not biodegradable. Most of the packets out there are 50% plastic but have the words biodegradable on them. The packets that I am selling are zero percent plastic,” Gray said.
Gray said the mall’s call to do away with plastic bags was a brilliant and forward-thinking initiative that will have a positive impact on pollution and our environment as a whole.
