The Compostable Biobag

June 6th, 2011 BY slowbuddha | No Comments

While maintaining your green principals while disposing of waste may sometimes pose a challenge, Biobag biodegradable trash bags replace the environmentally detrimental plastic garbage bags with 100% compostable and biodegradable kitchen trash bags.

Most large lawn, leaf, and compost bags are typically made of plastic; even paper bags have a disadvantage since they take a lot of energy to process, while also requiring the cutting of trees.

Biobags provides 100% compostable and biodegradable kitchen, lawn and leaf, and compost bags. The bags, which are made primarily from corn starch, break down within weeks, rather than centuries, like their chemically-ridden counterparts. All Biobags have a large capacity and are durable enough to handle the toughest lawn care or composting jobs.

The bags are manufactured with extreme flexibility and are built to “breathe” so the composting process will occur faster and more efficiently. The bags break down by allowing heat and moisture to escape or evaporate. This process also allows food waste to dry, reducing the rate of bacterial build-up which causes odor.

The bags are also made with organic inks and dyes, and are sized equivalent to regular plastic bags to fit most kitchen waste cans. These tall kitchen bags are also great for collecting outdoor waste from small gardening areas. While the bags are made from corn, they are completely shelf stable and won’t break down in your pantry or shed.
