PlasTechFree Comments on Single-Use Bag Ban Study

Martinsville-based PlasTechFree, Inc. today announced it foresaw the results of a new study by Freedonia Custom Research (FCR) that finds New Jersey’s plastic bag ban, which was meant to protect the environment, is not working. Instead, plastic consumption in the Garden State increased by almost three times.

As states and municipalities increasingly ban multi-use plastic bags, consumers are inundated with an abundance of plastic reusable bags, inadvertently creating a new problem without effectively addressing the primary issue, according to PlasTechFree, which offers a line of certified plant-based compostable bags and products that are plastic-free and produce rich nutrient soil.

“We understand the heightened skepticism behind branded ‘eco-friendly’ and ‘biodegradable’ products as greenwashing is so pertinent in today’s market,” says Mark Nathan, CEO, and co-founder of PlasTechFree. “While anything can be biodegradable, it just may take a few hundred-thousand years, not everything is compostable. Our entire line of products is truly compostable and safe for the environment, and we are confident consumers will warmly embrace these new products as they look to support the environment in a real and meaningful manner.”

Gene Benfatti, president, and co-founder of PlasTechFree, adds, “In a world saturated with misleading ‘plastic-free’ claims and deceiving labels, PlasTechFree is proud to deliver a line of products that consumers can now reasonably and safely use to meet their needs while eliminating the problem associated with plastic. Our hope”, he adds, “is that consumers will become more educated about products that truly are 100% plastic-free and select those that solve this increasingly complex and dangerous problem.”

The first five products available for purchase online by PlasTechFree include Multi-Use Bags, Reusable Antimicrobial Bags, Kitchen Counter Compost Bins, Pet Waste Disposal Bags, and Diaper Waste Disposal Bags.
