    Q: How long do EPI Biodegradable carryout bags last before they start breaking down?

    A: The answer depends on a couple factors. First of all, the EPI Poly Additive does NOT break down at all unless exposed to water and microorganisms found in nature. You can store them in a dry location for years, and they can be reused like all plastic bags. Even better, they are also recyclable so you can dispose of them at any recycling center location. has been a leader in our industry, offering a full line of Biodegradable Poly carryout bags.

    Q: Is it safe to have my food come in contact with EPI Plastic Carry Out Bags?

    A: The EPI plastic takeout bags we offer are in compliance with requirements set by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration, the CFIA (Canadian Food Inspection Agency) and the EFSA (European Food Safety Authority). EPI's food grade plastic additive TDPA (Total Degradable Plastic Additive) is totally safe for direct contact with foods and is reusable and recyclable as well!

    Q: How do I know these bags are really biodegradable and is EPI a certification of its biodegradability?

    A: The next time we produce these EPI biodegradable bags we can put some clearer information on them if that would be helpful, but to answer your question, EPI stands for the name of the company that has patented the ingredients needed to add to plastic to make the poly degrade via oxidation. EPI is a Environmental Technology company that sells the materials they engineer that when added to plastics speeds up the breakdown to reduce waste and help prevent pollution by bags being discarded improperly. EPI degradable bags are totally recyclable, and reusable like most other plastic bags.

    Q: Can logos be printed on these bags?

    A: Absolutely, we can most certainly print your logo or customized artwork on this Biodegradable Super Wave Carryout Bag for you. Give us a call at 888-321-2248 or

    Q: I love the look of these bags, but not sure if this size will fit my boxes. The sizing is confusing. I use a clamshell box. Will this fit?

    A: Good question, the sizing can be quite confusing because these bags have a bottom gusset as opposed to side gussets like most bags. Click here to check out this video that better explains it. To answer your question though, if your clamshell is like most clamshell boxes and is 8x8" or larger, this bag is probably a little too small. It would probably be best to jump one size to the 18x16x9".

    Q: Do you have any ASTM Ratings for these bags?

    A: EPI = Environmental Products Inc.has developed a wide range of additives to incorporate into polyethylene (PE), polypropolene (PP) and polystyrene (PS) to control the use of life, as well as the degradation rate in various disposal environments. The degradation of plastics is monitored and assessed from the physical, mechanical and chemical point of view. The following ASTM test methods are used- ASTM D 1238, ASTM D 882, ASTM D 3826, ASTM G53 + ASTM D5208, ASTM 5576, ASTM D 5510 The finished products are food compliant, recyclable, reusable and compostable.
