The new Pick n Pay 'plastic' bag can be used as compost in your garden - this is what it looks like

Pick n Pay introduced South Africa’s first compostable supermarket bags at its V&A Waterfront store, Cape Town, on Tuesday. The bags will only be available on Tuesday (in celebration of International Plastic Bag Free Day), but a nationwide roll-out is planned.

The compostable bags are made of vegetable matter, such as maize and potato starch, and will break down after three to six months depending on conditions. They are designed to collect organic waste, such as your kitchen scraps, and will compost with the organic waste in a home compost environment.

A typical plastic bag takes between 500 to a thousand years to decompose.
