I have fiber goats and want to start selling fleece for handspinners at a local shop.  Everyone I know who does this uses plastic cellophane bags.  The advantages of using plastic bags are that it puts the product in view without having it out for people to handle, and keeps it clean, unfelted, and all together.  I’m conscious of the problems stemming from the production and disposal of plastic, so I want to see if anyone on this forum has ideas for alternatives to plastic bag packaging.

Hi Chris.  Actually, the original cellophane bags were made from tree cellulose, which is where they got their name.  While most “cellophane” bags are now made from plastic, there are still compostable cellophane bags in existence… like these:  http://www.cellobags.com/Biode…..s_s/68.htm  Would those work for you?

I actually found the website you recommended by Googling “real cellophane”!  And I ordered bags from them.  Hooray!  I didn’t realize they still made real cellophane from cellulose.

 

These bags probably could be used for food storage as long as the food is not too wet.
