If You Care Certified Compostable Tall Kitchen Bags

    Description & Features

If You Care Certified Compostable Tall Kitchen Bags are made from 100% GMO free potato starch in a fully compostable composition. 

These bags are all natural -- completely polyethylene free and plasticizer free.  If You Care Compostable Bags are stronger than bags made from corn starch. 

The potato starch used to make these bags come from starch potatoes, which are not grown for food but only for starch production.  These potatoes are too high in starch to be good for food.  Therefore, there is no diversion from food supplies.  To produce the same amount of starch from these potatoes as from corn requires 40% less land.  These potatoes require no irrigation, and need only normal rainfall.  Corn requires much more water.

If You Care Tall Kitchen Bags fit all tall kitchen 13-gallon pails.  Use them for compostable waste. Bags along with food scraps can be composted in municipal or commercial compost facilities.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't believe these exist.... everyone should get these! I've been searching for a long time for a compostable garbage bag that's also durable... it's finally here! These bags are great. Wife and I use this at home for our primary garbage. We have a separate small composter with smaller compostable bags from a different make... we collect 2-3 of those and put them in one of these big bags and toss them in the green bin. The bags are durable up to a point - I mean that's the reason they're compostable right? So don't expect to be tossing like really sharp things or a lot of heavy things - it's perfect for your average week of garbage. I swear everytime I throw something in the garbage I feel guilt... I try to recycle as much as possible. Using these bags make me feel a tiny bit better.
