Biodegradable anti-static bags
All-Spec Industries contacted us about a biodegradable anti-static bag they’re selling for the same price as regular anti-static bags. They have the same properties as the normal non-biodegradable anti static bags, only these degrade within 9 months and don’t pollute the planet. We have a pile of plastic part bags sitting around from Mouser and Digikey orders that we save for storing projects, it would be great to know they won’t sit in a landfill forever if we throw them away.
This type of bag keeps your electronic components from accumulating an electrostatic charge while moving around in the bag. They do not provide any protection against electrostatic discharge, for that you need the conductive bags, also called static shielding bags. For more information about the subject off ESD safe bags you can check out EEVblog #247.
No word if the bags make crunching sounds that annoy consumers.
