Eco-friendly Christmas Gift 2021: Creating an Eco-conscious Unboxing Experience with Water-soluble #INVISIBLEBAG

At this time of gifting season, why not bring joy to your loved ones with eco-friendly options that help reduce waste at the same time? For starters, go green with Christmas gift wrapping! This year, Green Common teams up with Distinctive Action, the mastermind behind water-soluble #INVISIBLEBAG as a green and sustainable breakthrough. Replacing conventional plastic bags as hamper’s wrapping, #INVISIBLEBAG has the quality of dissolving in hot water without a trace. It is also non-toxic, compostable and biodegradable. Not only is using #INVISIBLEBAG as the wrapping an eco alternative, but also a kind option that is harmless to our ocean and environment.

 

 

1. What is #INVISIBLEBAG?

#INVISIBLEBAG is water-soluble, compostable and biodegradable, certified that it is non-toxic. It is an alternative to replace conventional plastic packaging. 

 

2. What is the mission of #INVISIBLEBAG?

Hong Kong-based start-up Distinctive Action launched #INVISIBLEBAG because of the founders’ love for hiking and nature. It all started when they found a lot of plastic waste while they were hiking, so they decided to do their part for the planet by reducing waste at source. With the aim of replacing conventional plastic bags and minimizing its impact to the environment, #INVISIBLEBAG is an alternative solution when plastic-use is inevitable.

 

3. How is #INVISIBLEBAG different from conventional plastic bags?

Unlike conventional plastic bags, #INVISIBLEBAG is made of a biodegradable combination of Polyvinyl Alcohol (known as PVA) together with starch, glycerin and water. As biodegradable polymers, PVA could be biodegraded by microorganisms and broken down into carbon dioxide and water, back to nature without forming microplastic. 

 

4. How to dispose #INVISIBLEBAG?

We suggest dissolving it in hot water by pouring 80 degrees celsius or above in a container, it will be dissolved completely in a few minutes. After the dissolution, you could put down the drain, and the wastewater will go to the sewage treatment facility. It also dissolves in cold or room temperature water but at a slower rate.

 

5. Can I recycle #INVISIBLEBAG?

Since #INVISIBLEBAG is water-soluble, it does not enter the recycling program. You can reuse the bags before disposing them by dissolving it in hot water or composting it in order to reduce your carbon footprint.
