FAYETTEVILLE, AR -- University of Arkansas students create a new invention that could revolutionize the plastic bag industry.
The students created the company "Cyclewood Solutions".
Their product, "Xylobags" are completely compostable.
The students were looking for a solution to plastic bag pollution, without changing consumer habits.
Co-creator of "Xylobags" Kevin Oden says the product uses recycled products.
"What's unique about our compostable plastic bag is that we take a byproduct or a wast product from the paper industry and we're able to utilize that in our bag," said Oden.
The bags are available at Ozark Natural Goods in Fayetteville.
