Highlights
Our biodegradable plastic trash bags completely decompose into natural elements, due to a natural additive in the plastic. They're made in the USA, manufactured from recycled plastic waste. Garbage bags are one of those things that can be hard to eliminate from even the most ardent reusable lifestyle.

Our 100%-recycled, biodegradable trash bags are the next best thing, helping minimize the impact of the bags you consume. Not only are they made of recycled waste, the bags also biodegrade completely into natural elements - unlike regular plastic bags which only photodegrade and remain in landfills for thousands of years.

According to EPI Global, the additive manufacturer, the trash bags will completely biodegrade when discarded in soil in the presence of micro-organisms. In a landfill, the bags will degrade within 12-24 months. Minimal packaging - each set of bags comes in a roll secured by a paper wrapper. Available in 4 gallon small, 13 gallon tall kitchen and 30 gallon lawn bags. No ties included.

• Biodegradable and recycled plastic garbage bags decompose in landfills in about a year
• Made with natural additive that allows plastic to completely break down
• Available in three different sizes

5.0 These are great!

Comments about Product:

I've been using the 13 gallon bags for about a year now, and the design has improved over time. They used to be a bit difficult to open, but this latest batch opens with no effort! They are durable (haven't had one break yet). Love the latest, minimal packaging too - just a rubber band.

5.0 great bags!

Comments about Product:

I get the smallest size bags, which are perfect for my cabinet-door rack, which is designed for grocery bags. It's also just the right size for my bathroom wastebaskets and they even work in my car litter bag. Living in a condo, I have no choice but to bag my trash--these make me feel a bit better about that necessity. The bags used to be one long roll, which was a nuisance; now they come out of the pack individually from the middle pulling the next bag out only a little bit, which is perfect. I appreciate the minimal packaging, too. Like most such bags, they can be a bit challenging to open, but a little moisture on the finger tips solves that problem.

5.0 Love these!

Comments about Product:

I was concerned that biodegrade bags would not be very sturdy, but they hold up so well! I never worry about the bag ripping on that fateful walk to the dumpster, as many other "brand-name" bags have. Recycled, biodegradable, sturdy, can it get any better than this?

3.0 Great Idea, needs more consistency

Comments about Product:

I love the idea of a garbage bag made from recycled plastic (why make plastic just to throw away?) that also biodegrades. The bags are hard to open and one side is thinner than the other and tends to tear. Can you make the bags more evenly?

5.0 Don\'t bother with the 4 gallon

Comments about Product:

These are really good trash bags. However, the 4 gallon ones are so small that they really aren't good for much. Maybe the smallest bathroom trash container. I sure wish they had a size in between.

I was very happy with the prompt delivery of my items. This is the only place I could find small garbage bags to fit the small can that I keep under my sink. The quality was excellent and they fit perfectly. The bags were thick and didn't tear when they were full. Service was excellent.

Comments about Product:

These bags are great. I feel good about using a biodegradable product for my garbage. They are pretty strong, and I don't have leaks. Though like most trash bags, be careful with sharp objects or filling them with super heavy stuff.

5.0 awesome trash bags!

Comments about Product:

these trash bags are wonderful! they are strong enough not to break & leak, yet still environmentally friendly. they are far superior to other "green" brands on the market. the only bummer is when they are out of stock! i like to stock up so i don't run out.

5.0 Awesome garbage bags!

Comments about Product:

I felt very silly ordering garbage bags online, and my kids were convinced that I had finally gone nuts when they were delivered. I had run out of biodegradable bags that I had purchased at a local store, and had not been able to find more. Now I am happy that happened, because these are so much better! They are extra tall, so they fold over the side of my tall kitchen garbage can and STAY THERE! They don't collapse inside the can like the old ones did. Also, the extra bag makes it easy to tie them up and haul them out. They are nice and thick. I haven't had them tear or leak, and with a family of 5, we throw a ton of icky things in there. I will order these for as long as they are affordable and available! My only thought is that I hope they really do biodegrade like the manufacturer says. They sure are durable while in use.

5.0 great bags, thin but strong, capacious

Comments about Product:

Hey, ReUseIt, you've made a customer for life: A year or so ago I bought these bags and they were thicker and too small to fit my garbage bins. After I emailed you guys commenting that these bags should be bigger to go over the lip of bins, you changed the bags! They're now plenty big to fit all my bins. And I like that they're made from recycled plastic and biodegradable. Good job!

4.0 Biodegradeable Garbage bags.

These are a great idea to use in place of non-biodegradeable plastic kitchen bags. I wish they had a draw string to help hold them on the trash can and to close them when disposing in the garbage.

3.0 Product is Satisfactory

Comments about Product:

What I really want in a biodegradable garbage bag is one that is made from vegetable product rather than recycled plastic. Of course, recycled plastic is better than regular plastic, so I will continue to buy your bags until I can find the kind I really want. If you could offer on your website a biodegradable garbage bag made from vegetable prouct in a 4-gallon or 5-gallon size, which is made in the USA, I would be THRILLED and would buy them from you all the time.

5.0 durable

Comments about Product:

I'm always curious what the workers at the dump are observing with all the "biodegradable" bags...anyway, these bags are durable, I haven't had a mess yet. I have used at least 10 of the 24 13-gallon bags and I put a lot of animal meat scraps, wet coffee grounds, veggie/fruit scraps (yes, i know, compost...getting there.). I will buy these bags again, unless I start composting then I think trash bags are not necessary to use at all for dry trash.

5.0 like these

Comments about Product:

I like these bags for two reasons: one, they are supposed to biodegradable in a landfill. Other "biodegradable" bags are not, they need special treatment to biodegrade. Two, they are made in the USA, so I feel like I'm supporting our economy by purchasing them. They are thinner than standard garbage bags, but that is not a problem for us.

5.0 These are the only garbage bags I use!

Comments about Product:

I have been using all 3 sizes of reuseit's biodegradable garbage bags for about a year now, and I think they are just great - durable and just the right sizes. I recently cheated on them and bought a different brand of biodegradable bags because these were out of stock, and I kicked myself afterwards. The other brand disintegrated if they came into contact with even a little bit of moisture, while the reuseit bags always held up great. I now buy 3-5 rolls at a time to make sure I never run out!

1.0 What happen to these bags!!

Comments about Product:

Love these garbage bags in my past orders. They are biodegradable and very very strong...stronger than Glad or Hefty..BUT, the ones I just received in my latest order are TERRIBLE....they are weak and rip so easily. You can tell that they've changed the material being used. Apparently no one has pre-tested these bags or they wouldn't be selling them. ...completely useless unless your using them for tissues. Very very disappointed, and since I had ordered 2 pkgs of them, I'm doubly disappointed.

4.0 Biodegradable Garbage Bags

Comments about Product:

I am happy with the quality and size of these garbage bags. I am very happy that they are made in the USA because I am tired of so many manufacturing jobs leaving our country. I am pleased they are made of recycled plastic rather than new plastic. BUT, I would really love to buy garbage bags made from vegetable oil. If you ever make them that way, please be sure to let me know.



Thanks,

Comments about Product:

Con - very hard to open each bag to place inside trash can Pro - made of 100% recycled plastic. Very stong and durable. ??- Do they really biodegrade? I hope so but have no proof. Will purchase again if no other better options come on the market.

4.0 great bags -small means small.

Comments about Product:

Being single in a studio, I got the the 4 gallon size. They hold up well and don't tear but they have a rounded bottom instead of the usual square bottom, which means they don't hold as much and you have to tie off the top. Would love a drawstring version as they definitely hold up.

Comments about Product:

I read a few reviews of these bags on the combo packs and was very wary on ordering. However we just moved to AU from the states and the bags here are much cheaper, almost like saran wrap and are much more expensive. I ordered these and could not be happier, and to know I'm doing something else great for our planet makes this green mama super happy!

5.0 reuseit kitchen trash bags are great!

Comments about Product:

I ordered three (25 per pack) packs of the reuseit 13 gallon kitchen bags. (before using these trash bags, I was buying "recycled" trash bags but there was such a small percentage of the bags that were actually from recycled products). I gave one pack of the reusit bags to each of our sons and we kept one pack. I just changed the trash bag and it was easy to just take the two ends and tie them together and knot it. I was not sure if I would like a bag that did not have the "handles" but it is not a problem at all. My daughter-in-law loved the idea of the company and the product when I gave her the trash bags. It's nice to know that we are doing our part for the environment. I will definitely be re-ordering the trash bags.

5.0 Great sturdy bag

Comments about Product:

I love that these bags "complete the circle." And even if they weren't recycled and biodegradable, they would still be great bags. I have found them to be easier to open than other garbage bags, and also much less prone to snagging and tearing than other recycled and non-recycled garbage bags. (In fact, no tears at all so far.) Plus they don't come with twist ties; which I like, because I always seem to have more than enough. And made in the USA!

5.0 Good and durable bags

Comments about Product:

I am using both the 13 and the 4 gallon bags for all my household needs. They are much more durable than the previous brand I purchased (which decomposed when in contact with wet waste and made a quite unpleasant scene in the kitchen). With these bags I have not had any problem and they also look much thicker than the other brand. They are also thicker than many non-biodegradable trash bags I used to buy from grocery stores. I am very happy now that I no longer need any plastic grocery bags (which I used as small trash bags before).

4.0 Better than expected!!

Comments about Product:

I was definitely hesitant to use these bags at first...normally the ones that are good for the environment don't seem to be as durable or worth the extra money, but these were not only a great price but they actually held up as well as or usual Glad bags. The only few things that I would change were that I didn't care for the bottom of the bag...it seemed "gathered in the center so it didn't spread and fill the bottom of the trash can as well and also it would be great to have better handles to tie the bags up. Overall, these were reasonably priced and they held up well and I feel much better using these than the other "ungreen" bags! I will definitely buy again as soon as all of my other "bad" bags are done!! Great buy!

5.0 Love these guilt-FREE garbage bags

Comments about Product:

We purchased these larger (black) garbage/leaf bags to use in our talk kitchen garbage can. They provide ample room to dump all our other cans into, so now we only use one bag vs. previously needing three throughout the house. We have not had any problem with tearing (which was a concern) or holes developing--even with organic or wet items touching the sides. We will continue to order in bulk and use these bags. They work great and provide our family peace of mind!
