According to this report, a manufacturer of plastic bags has been advertising their product as biodegradable, but the watchdog ACCC has taken the manufacturer to court alleging that the advertising is misleading.

This is yet another example of how “green claims” can land you in hot water with the law if there is any doubt. The ACCC has taken many such actions so it is no idle threat.

Many similar actions have taken place in the US and the UK, for example.
