Earth friendly BioBags for your trash December 15, 2008

Not too long ago, I wrote about biodegradable bags to use for your trash. Well, here’s another one I came across recently.

BioBag is the world’s largest brand of 100% biodegradable and 100% compostable bags and films made from the material, Mater-Bi. All of our products contain GMO free starch, biodegradable polymer and other renewable resources. No polyethylene is used in the production process.

There’s many different sizes to choose from: tall kitchen, food waste, lawn and leaf, dog waste, and cat pan liners. I bought mine at a health food store and I know Whole Foods carries them if you live near one. With regular plastic garbage bags taking 1000 years to break down and  toxic substances from them leaching into the soil, these bags are a excellent earth-friendly alternative.

    i love these. we used them for our compost at my last house. the only bummer was if someone put something juicey in the bin… the bottom of the bag would give. i think it sped up the compost rate of the bag or something!
