Are Green Dog Poop Bags Biodegradeable?

Good Question, right? 

Have you noticed that when you walk the aisles of your fave pet store or browse online that dog poop bags have started turning green? Not magically turning green, but literally they are manufacturing poop bags as "green" and making them from green colored plastic.
