WE WANT TO ELIMINATE SINGLE-USE PLASTIC BAGS...

Solubag invented a new raw material made by a synthesis from calcium carbide and natural substances. Our environmentally friendly bags can be completely dissolved in 5 minutes in water instead of up to 500 years without contamination

...ENABLING COMMON PLASTIC PRODUCT PRODUCERS TO USE OUR NEW RAW MATERIAL

The bags can be produced in the same machinery that currently manufactures flexible films, replacing the plastic material for Solubags raw material

SOLUBAG ALSO AIMS TO REPLACE REUSABLE BAGS

Thanks to the same raw material and a different formulation, Solubag produces water-soluble reusable fabric bags

SOLUBAG CANADA SELLS THE BAGS THROUGH OUR DISTRIBUTION PARTNERS

The business model is unique as Solubag Canada sells the products through distributors or directly to retailers

Either we replace plastic, or we forget
about our planet

Annually, 5 trillion plastic bags are used worldwide
70% of them end up in the environment

Competitive Environment

Solubag’s raw material can be extruded in any plastic extrusion machine, which allows it to be scaled very quickly. We are making alliances with plastics product manufacturers to be our partners.

PLASTIC BAG

  • Low cost
  • Takes 500 years to decompose
  • Made of non-renewable resources
  • Many countries are banning single use plastic bags

COMPOSTABLE BAG

  • Takes around 180 days to degrade in commercial composting environment, still contains microplastics
  • Need a composting stage, not common everywhere in the world
  • It is required to be separated from plastic materials before being recycled
  • Use organic/food as base material

PAPER BAG

  • Biodegradable
  • Leads to deforestation
  • Requires a lot of water, energy, chemicals in their production and recycling processes
  • High carbon footprint

FABRIC BAG

  • Reusable
  • A fabric bag of Polypropylene needs to be used at least 149 times and a cotton bag 131 times to have a positive impact on climate change
  • Expensive if uses natural fibers
  • Difficult for recycling
