Frusack is a durable and washable bio bag invented by two Czech students and will be placed on the market in September.

The bio-plastic is made of corn starch or cellulose and the bags are colored with natural, harmless dyes. Frusack aims to reduce plastic waste in our everyday life and it’s an ecological alternative to thin plastic bags commonly used for shopping groceries.

The plastic bag can be used to carry fruit and vegetables, up to 1.5kg. It was unveiled last year at the Prague Design Week.

Each Czech consumes 400 plastic bags annually. They are among the least sorted types of plastic waste. The EU is implementing legislative changes to reduce single-use waste in all member countries before 2025.
