Plastic-free food waste bin bags made from potato starch!
Reduce the amount of methane gas produced by your waste by using these compostable bags to collect your kitchen waste.
These bin bags are made from potato starch from non-GMO starch potatoes blended with a certified, fully compostable polymer. No plasticizers or polyethylene are added.
The potato starch used to make these bags comes from starch potatoes, which are grown specifically for starch production and contain more amylopectin than corn or wheat, making a stronger bag. To produce the same amount of starch from these potatoes as from corn (another biodegradable material used for bin bags) requires 40% less land and no extra water, as potatoes need only natural rainfall!
Ideal for countertop kitchen compost bins. Can be put straight into the compost bin (if containing compostable waste), meaning it wont be dumped in landfill where it releases methane gas and contributes to global warming.
The outer packaging is made from unbleached recycled cardboard, non-toxic glues and vegetable-based inks.
Size: 30 bags of approx 43cm x 39cm x 16cm, 11.4L capacity
