"Biodegradable bioplastics are often used for organic waste bags, where they can be composted together with the food or green waste. Some trays and containers for fruit, vegetables, eggs and meat, bottles for soft drinks and dairy products and blister foils for fruit and vegetables are manufactured from bioplastics".
But better forbid the use of polythene bags, advise companies and shops to use biodegradable or paper bags. Inform the population through the media to bring their own shopping bags.

To my understanding, the compostable bags aren't yet an option in many places because of the poor conditions in which they will be stored. They will start to break down well in advance of being used causing them to not be used. At the same time, when some of the bags break down, they turn into very small particles that don't break down further so they can cause problems of their own.
Ultimately, those introducing these advances should be responsible for the cradle to grave responsibilities associated.
