I'm glad I finally found compostable garbage bags. You would think that more people would make them since plastic is so harmful to the environment but apparently nobody else cares. These bags are great for me since I don't create a lot of garbage since I don't cook. I use them mostly for tea bags and coffee grounds. I found a small compostable pail from greatergoods.com and the bags fit inside the pail nicely.
These fit perfectly in my kitchen compost container
I originally bought the larger size since my compost pail is bigger that the usual kitchen garbage container. They were actually too big, but since I had them, I thought I would give them a trial run. I can now say, about 5 bags in, that other than being too large, I'm happy with their performance so far. I will order a box of the smaller size now and feel relief that throwing the bags into my trash can (after emptying the compost contents into my garden) will be more environmentally friendly than the bags I was using. Any leftover large bags can be used for other garbage tasks, or maybe even storage tasks....
So glad Free the Ocean came out with this size. Purrfect for cleaning cat boxes and biodegradable. Saves me from using the plastic grocery store ones.
These bags are totally large enough for a large waste basket and strong enough to hold everything. I'm so happy to use something I use so often that won't harm the environmrnt!
