Best Packaging stocks a wide range of Bubble Wrap. This particular bubble wrap is degradable. Polycell explains:
EcoPure® is an organic additive that causes plastic to biodegrade* through a series of chemical and biological processes when disposed of in a microbe-rich environment, such as a biologically active landfill. Ingredients in the EcoPure® allow the acceleration of the biodegradability* of otherwise non-biodegradable plastics by providing a foothold for colonies of microorganisms. This foothold allows the microorganisms to begin metabolizing the EcoPure® , and over time, the microorganisms expand to, and break down, the rest of the plastic product. These microbes then send out chemical signals attracting other microbes. Collectively, they then feast on the polymer chains, breaking down the chemical bonds.
EcoPure® requires the action of certain enzymes for the biodegradation process to begin, so plastics containing EcoPure® will never begin to biodegrade during normal use. The by-products of the biodegradation process depend on the disposal environment, but are non-toxic and some are even economically valuable for energy, such as Methane. Other by-products include humus (which can be used to make soil richer) and carbon dioxide.
