Don’t use Dymocks bags for permanently storing things in. They seem to be made of some kind of plastic that degrades quite rapidly. I’ve had two that were kept in drawers, out of the sunlight, which have unexpectedly disintegrated into lots of little plastic bits.
Actually I think it’s great that they’re using this kind of plastic… but it means they’re not practical for keeping longterm, and it’s a shame they don’t have a warning on the bag somewhere.
You have been warned.

Consumer tip, don’t use angus & robertson for buying books.
Any particular reason?
I swear their bags say “100% bio-degradable” in fine print — or have they omitted this line in recent months?
I’ll have to look closer the next time I encounter one that’s still intact!
In so many ways, this had to be a nice discovery – testing the biodegradability of bags without using sun or dirt! Still, the question begs to be asked… what was so important that it had to be in a plastic bag in a drawer in a room in a house, out of the sun??
SOME SUPERMARKETS IN MY COUNTRY START TO ADVICE CUSTOMERS TO USE JUTE BAGS INSTADE OF PLASTIC BAG & SO SOON THEY WILL CHARGE THEM IF THEY USED IT
