BPI Certified Compostable

This product contains material that has been third-party certified to meet ASTM Standards D6400 (for Compostable Plastics) or ASTM D6868 (for Compostable Packaging). These products break down in industrial composting facilities, and turn into usable soil. Appropriate facilities may not exist in your area.

Compostable

This product contains material that can break down into soil in either a backyard or industrial composting system. These products are declared compostable by the manufacturer, but may not third-party certified. Contact your local waste-hauler or composting facility to determine where these materials may be accepted. Certain materials may be better fit for industrial facilities than backyard composting systems. Industrial facilities may not exist in your area.

No GMO

This product is made without the use of Genetically Modified Organisms. The process of using GMO’s involves manipulating the DNA of plants, animals, and other organisms to produce benefits such as an ability to tolerate herbicides or produce their own pesticides. GMO’s have been deemed as unsafe by many developed nations.

Sustainable Lifestyle

This product helps promote a more sustainable lifestyle. Whether it encourages re-use and the movement away from disposable products, or it promotes sustainable actions like recycling and composting, this product can help you lower your environmental footprint.

Plant Based Resin

Plant Based Resins are used as an alternative to fully-synthetic plastics. Instead of using Petroleum as the main base ingredient to form plastic, some companies have started replacing a portion of the ingredients with plant and vegetable extracts. This lowers the amount of resources extracted to create purely synthetic products, and often provides a use for agricultural byproducts such as corn or flax. Some plant based resins are made from 100% plant materials, and can be composted in industrial facilities. EarthHero recommends checking with your local compost facility to determine which items are safe to compost.

Ditch the plastic trash bags! Did you know that normal trash bags take 500 years to break down in landfills? This bulk pack of 13-gallon kitchen bags are compostable and help you reduce your household's dependency on plastic. These bags are also great if you have a large compost bin or own a business that disposes of compostable items in large quantities.

About the Company

BioBag

Did you know that when organic waste is left in plastic inside the landfill, itโ€™s unable to decompose properly and generates methane, a greenhouse gas 25 times more potent than carbon dioxide? Even worse, hundreds of years later, when the plastic-bag around your organic waste does break down, it leaves behind tons of nasty microplastics, further polluting our waterways and ecosystems. Make the switch from trashy plastic bags to a compostable alternative with BioBag!

Made from GMO-Free crops, each BioBag product helps you reduce your use of single use, disposable plastics. From pet waste bags, to food storage solutions, to countertop compost bags, BioBag has a (compostable) solution.

    Can these bags be used to hold trash or only compost? I’m new to this!

      Hi Kate! Great question- these bags are compostable, meaning that if you put compost in them and then place the whole bag in a composting pile or industrial composting are, all of it will compost! They can have trash in them, but they will not compost, because a landfill environment is very different than a composting environment. However, we do love them as a wonderful plastic trash bag alternative!

    The bags were smaller than I expected, so I had to rig them in my trash can a special way to keep them from sliding down. I love the idea of these bags, but I donโ€™t think theyโ€™re the best fit for my trash can.

      Hi Steve! These Bio Bags meet the European home compost standards, which means they will completely degrade in 90 days in a compost pile that maintains a minimum temperature of 113 Fahrenheit! They are not meant to be disposed of in the ocean, only composted.

    I was worried these bags will rip and took my trash out by taking the whole bin out. No issues so far, Iโ€™m pleased with my purchase!

    I have been pleasantly surprised at how well these BioBags perform. Eco bags that I bought in the past were too flimsy. But these bags work very well and I will continue to buy them. It saves me adding 30 plastic bags a month, 360 bags a year, to our Earth.

    Not large enough

    Sarah (verified owner)

    The bin liner is sealed at the bottom and is not wide enough to fit over the top of a 13 gallon bin without tearing, making it useless.

      Hi, Jane! Great question- these bio bags are not drawstring, they are open at the top! You can tie them up by the corners to ensure that your items do not fall out during transport, though ๐Ÿ™‚

    Strong, flexible bag for kitchen waste and trash

    fredandpaulalopez (verified owner)

    We were very impressed with the quality and strength of this compostible bag for the kitchen. The bags do not take up much storage space and are a much better choice than plastic bags.

    We have used these for a years now. We understand the issues with how the bags and other organic materials degrade in landfills (e.g. taking longer than composting, releasing methane, etc.) but with forever plastic being the alternative, we see using these bags for all manner of household waste as a no-brainer.

    Does this material still biodegrade in regular landfill/trash pick ups? Our small city does not have a municipal composting facility.

      Hi Jennifer! Great question! Most landfills are oxygen-poor, which means that any present microorganisms will engage in anaerobic-respiration as they break down any organic material. This is a very slow process, but yes, these bags will eventually break down. If you use these bags for your own compost, they’ll easily breakdown in a backyard bin, especially with adequate turning and aeration.

      It should be noted that while these bags offer a great alternative to plastic and help us move away from fossil-fuel based products, any organic matter in landfills presents a problem (which is why composting is so important!). As those microorganisms engage in anaerobic-respiration, they release methane as a byproduct. We know that methane is one of the most powerful greenhouse gases, so the more food-waste we can divert from landfills the better! Some landfills are employing methane trapping technology and turning it into energy, which is great.

      Maybe more info than you needed! Thanks for giving us the opportunity to nerd out. ๐Ÿ™‚

    glad to be off plastic; need to find a trash can it fits better

    MIchelle (verified owner)

    Happy with the bags except they fall down inside the trash can, don’t stay gripped around the rim. Maybe need to find a trash can that fits them better.

      Hi Michelle! These are wider bags and great for a big trashcan. You may want to try tieing a knot on the side to keep it tight around the can’s rim. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love these!

    L. Lincoln (verified owner)

    I love having the option to use compostable garbage bags for my kitchen garbage. I can throw messy things away and know that the bag will keep it contained but then will break down eventually.
