San Francisco Proposes to Ban Plastic Bags!

TORONTO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 26, 2007 -- Diamant Art Corporation (OTCBB: DIAAF) is pleased to announce that its line of environmentally conscious bio-degradable plastic wrap, bio-products and food films meet the demands of the proposed plastic ban in San Francisco.

The Board of Supervisors for the City of San Francisco have proposed a ban on plastics usage by large-scale grocery retailers in the San Francisco area. If this legislation is passed, large-scale grocery stores will be required by law to use grocery bags made of substances such as bio-degradable plastic that can be composted, recycled paper and reusable bags. This proposed ban is endorsed by the Mayor of San Francisco along with the majority of the Board of Supervisors of the City.

In view of the fact that San Francisco may be on the verge of becoming the first city in North America to ban plastic shopping bags as a result of their negative impact on the environment, Diamant believes that its bio-product line is ready to fill the void for bio-products needed in the San Francisco area. Diamant has already shipped 14.6 million feet of its custom-made orange bio-degradable pallet wrap to Sigma Supply of Arkansas and the remaining 7 million feet on order will follow in the next week.

Diamant Bio-Products contain Totally Degradable Plastic Additive (TDPA) Oxo-Biodegradable Technology. TDPA-based plastic products will degrade and ultimately biodegrade. Unlike other plastic, once biodegrading is complete, all that remains is carbon dioxide, water and biomass, all of which are part of the normal bio-cycle.
