New Look! Compostable - For Use in Municipal Facilities Where Applicable. Made with GMO Free Crops. Fits Most Kitchen Compost Pails. Certified for Home Composting Too! BioBags take the mess out of food scrap collection keeping your compost pail clean and odor-free. BioBag is a world leader in providing bags and films for the collection of organic waste for the purpose of composting. Unlike regular plastic BioBags can be consumed by micro-organisms that live in our soils. Because we use starches from renewable crops our bags can be readily composted along with organic waste in municipal composting facilities. BioBag isn't a large petroleum based plastic bag company that now conveniently dabbles in the new business of compostable bags. We are a small privately owned company dedicated to only producing certified compostable bags and films. The resin we use is sourced from Italy as there is no "compostable resin" supplier in North America that can guarantee a resin that is based on GMO-free crops. The resin is then blown into compostable bags and films at our production facility in California. . Little steps really do make a BIG difference when creating products for the GREEN industry is all we do!

"I have used (and liked) this product for a long time, but was quite disappointed when BioBag started shipping in a "roll" with perforated tear-off bags. No matter how carefully I separated the bags, I ended up splitting approx 1/5 to 1/6 of the bags in each package. I was very close to finding another option when my last order shipped with bags that are again pre-separated from one another, no longer in a roll. Good move, BioBag! You almost lost a customer there.
These bags are excellent for holding compost, making it far easier to clean and deodorize the container between loads. I wouldn't use my compost bin without a biodegradable bag."
"Saw a documentary on plastic waste and we decided to minimize our contribution as much as we can. I bought these to use as our garbage bags and love them! They are perfect for our under-the-counter container. They are strong and with minimizing throwables even with the smaller size i can get about 2 weeks with one."
"A good size and great to have a tidy way to dispose of food scraps so that I can just throw them in the green can without making a mess. I wish there were more excellent sustainable solutions like this. Thanks Vitacost for carrying these!"
"These are great bags. I use them to line the wastebaskets in the bathrooms, rather than using regular plastic. I use them because they are biodegradable, Better to be part of the solution, then part of the problem."
"I am thrilled & grateful with this bag. They're a small size & fits smaller trash receptacles well without a foot of wasted plastic outside the receptacle. They can be closed/tied easily due to their light, soft texture & yet very strong. I also use them to put over my foot that cannot get wet when I take a shower - they have NEVER leaked once & yet are pliable, comfortable & safe for my foot (I don't step on the shower/tub floor with them & I use waterproof skin tape to seal them to my calf). They are more costly than regular plastic bags but to help my foot & the earth it is well worth it to get them!"
"I have been using them for years. They do leak if small-moderate amt. liquid is placed in bag, but not much worse than many regular plastic bags. We fill up nearly to top without much problems. Be careful when carrying to compost. But all in all good bag for the job."
"I do have a kitchen compost container, but I must confess: I bought these for used kitty litter. I have to change it and empty it often enough that it was making me feel badly for using so much plastic that could otherwise go into the recycling container.
For the size that they are, it holds quite enough used kitty litter that it can get heavy... and the bag does not break! Of course, I'm not talking about picking it up and dropping it to see if that happens, and if you would scratch it or tear it accidentally, I'm sure it would break, but then it wouldn't matter what you had in it, or how full.
But it is sturdier than what you might at first think, when you peel off the first bag. They do the job I wanted them for quite nicely and I don't have to worry about diverting all those plastic grocery bags from the recycling system just for kitty litter box cleanings."
"I am a full time traveler with three cats. We have a litter box in our trailer which we clean twice a day. Biobags are the perfect answer for a ecological way to put my kitties mess in and make sure it is bio-degradable and not sitting in a plastic bag never to degrade."
"Love these bags, overall. They keep my countertop composter clean and can go right into my compost pile. They break down quickly and leave no obvious pieces behind. There's only one negative aspect: depending on what type of countertop compost container you have, you need to watch the moisture content of what goes into them and how long they hold material before going into the compost pile (we have an "open air" style composter that is designed to use compostable bags). I discovered this after more fruit than veggie scraps went in, and it wasn't emptied for 4 or 5 days. A brown, stinky ooze dripped from the bottom and spread out over our counter, attracting ants and fruit flies overnight. Ick! That being said, if you have an enclosed, sealed container, you will probably be fine and get away with a quick rinse if seepage occurs. We just watch our contents and empty more frequently if a lot of wet material goes in. Other than that, they're great bags!"
"I actually bought these by accident-I intended to replace the larger ones that I had prior to these. I used them for my small garbage can liner under my sink. As it turns out, these are great for not only compost scraps, but also for my grandson's messy diapers and my (grand) dog's messes in the yard!"
"These bags make it easy to carry compost materials out to the compost bin without having to bring the bucket back and forth from the kitchen. I can head out for a walk, toss the full bag into the compost bin, and keep on going. It keeps the compost bucket cleaner inside. Also, the bags really do break down in the compost process."
