PlasTechFree, Inc. Pioneering Sustainability in a Plastic-Driven World

While sustainability continues to be a growing concern amongst consumers, Martinsville-based PlasTechFree, Inc. has announced its Certified Home Compostable, plant-based bags that biodegrade, leaving only rich nutrients in the soil within 180 days. While competitors continue to mislead consumers with greenwashing tactics, PlasTechFree’s innovative technology provides consumers with an alternative to single-use plastic bags. Its line features several products, including single-use and reusable bags, kitchen compost bin bags, diaper disposal and pet waste bags, all of which are now available for purchase on

PlasTechFree also produces Plant-Based Compostable bags for the cannabis industry, the garment industry and many others.

“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.”

As states and municipalities increasingly ban single-use plastic bags, consumers are inundated with an abundance of plastic reusable bags, inadvertently creating a new problem for the future without effectively addressing the primary issue. Consumers want a solution, and PlasTechFree’s products provide everyday products that are high-quality and support sustainability.

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.”
