Is cellophane biodegradeable?



  1. 0 Votes

    Cellophane is a natural polymer made from cellulose (wood and plant material), unlike man-made polymers in plastics, which are petroleum based. Cellophane is made by digesting wood and plant pulps to break the long fiber chains and then regenerated, as a clear, shiny film still comprised largely of crystalline cellulose molecules. Therefore microorganisms in the soil can break it down. However, check to the additives in the cellophane and whether it is uncoated or not to ensure that it is 100% biodegradable.
