The biodegradable alternative to plastic bags.
Cellophane is derived from cellulose, usually from wood, but can also be produced from cotton or hemp. It is widely used in food packaging. You can tear it by hand, unlike plastic. And it is completely biodegradable.
Note: So-called 'cello BOPP bags' are not made from cellophane. They are cheap plastic (polypropylene) bags made from fossil fuels/crude oil. Don't be fooled by the use of the term 'cello' - check to make sure bags are actually made from cellophane if you want a biodegradable bag.
Before the arrival of plastic bags, just about all clear bags were made from Cellophane and the term 'Cello Bags' was usually used to describe them. When plastic came along, being cheaper to make, it started taking away Cellophane's market, especially in the food packaging area. However some people still confusingly call the plastic bags 'cello bags' and some suppliers, who clearly should know better, call their plastic bags 'Cello Bags'.
We supply genuine Cellophane Bags, that are open ended at one end. In Australia, as far as we know there are no real cellophane bags with sealing adhesive strips - all are open ended bags. So if it has an adhesive sealing strip, it's almost certainly plastic. To seal open ended cellophane bags, biodegradable Sellotape can be used (which we also supply), or twist ties or rubber bands etc depending on the contents.
