Highlights
These biodegradable lawn and leaf bags help you clean up your local landfill while cleaning up your yard. They're Certified Compostable by the Biodegradable Products Institute, and meet the gold standard for compostable plastic. The bag itself will decomposes in 10-45 days in a municipal composting facility, leaving no harmful residues behind. These biodegradable waste bags are made from starches derived from plants, vegetable oils, and compostable polymers from both renewable raw materials and fossil raw materials, and are guaranteed that no polyethylene is used in its production.

This product is ideal for those of you that have cut plastic bag consumption to the point that you no longer have enough to reuse for dog poop, garbage can liners, yard waste, etc. They're a smart alternative to polyethylene and polypropylene based plastic bags, and are designed to help people 100% committed to being plastic bag-free.

• Biodegradable waste bags help you clean up your home without additional disposable plastic waste
• Can also be used as a dog waste bag, food storage, or recycling bin liner

2.0 Too Flimsy to be useful

Comments about Product:

After several ruptures and the ensuing mess, I would not recommend these bags. Surely it is possible to design a biodegradable garbage bag which actually holds without tearing and spilling the garbage all over the kitchen floor.

5.0 Awesome

Comments about Product:

I HATE using plastic bags. I was using the smaller plastic produce bags from the grocery and one day I said to myself "why don't I just recycle these instead of putting them in the garbage filled w/trash?" duh. So now, I use these 3 gallon bags in my bathroom trash cans and take the plastic back to the grocery. We don't change them every week unless there is, for obvious reasons, a need to. Just emptying the contents into the larger kitchen bag works fine. I will get a few uses out of each one, I think.

5.0 Love to use these for small trash cans.

Comments about Product:

I use these compost bags for small trash cans in the bathroom, etc. I love that they are biodegradable and the perfect size. Also, since I don't have a garbage disposal, I use them for food trash in the kitchen. Since I also use the biodegradable large garbage bags, I know that all of my waste will breakdown completely when it gets to the landfill.

5.0 Great Item

Comments about Product:

We have used this item for several years. They perform as advertized. I am a bit of a lazy composter so I don't stir the pile as often as I should. These bags do break down in time though. Much better than emptying plastic bags into the pile and throwing them in the garbage.

Comments about Product:

The box I received only contained 24 bags. I didn't start counting them until the past 2 orders (I was short on the last order too, but thought it was just a fluke - have to wonder if these are short on a regular basis).

Comments about Product:

This is the second time that I've been shorted the number of bags. It may have happened before, but I didn't count them before. I started counting the bags because a friend said she had been shorted. I like the product, but I'm not going to buy them anymore because I, as anyone else would, want to get what I pay for, not less.

5.0 A sound investment

Comments about Product:

I have become fed up with using grocery and produce bags to keep scapes in my scrap bin. The scraps would mold or I would be concerned with how well my scraps would do in the compost pile. I have more confidence that these BioBags will quell my fears of being Eco-Friendly by decomposing well and does help to keep the smell out of the scap bin. Thank you for a great product!

I use these inside my countertop compost bin. They don't really hold up all that well, but I just take the whole bin & dump it in my out door compost bin. I guess it keeps the countertop bin from getting too gross.

1.0 New and Improved to Uselessness

Comments about Product:

I've been using Biobags for two years now. I use the lawn & leaf size for yard cleanup, the compost bin size for doggie bomb cleanup and bathroom garbage and the kitchen size for, well, the kitchen. I love knowing that I am not putting my garbage into a plastic bag where it will never decompose. While I want to be earth friendly, I still want a bag that is reliable. In my last shipment from Reusable Bags, my Biobags all had the new and improved label on them. I was excited because every now and then a bag tears on me and it's frustrating, but livable because I know I'm not using plastic, and I was really hoping they had stepped it up a notch. I am so disappointed. These new and improved bags are worthless. I can't even put a tissue into them without them tearing. I've got through a whole roll of the kitchen bags and thrown away more than half of them because they tear when you take them off the roll, they tear when you put them in the waste basket, they tear when you put anything in them, and god forbid you want to take them out of the waste basket, they'll happily dump their entire contents on the floor for you. These were worth the cost before and eased my conscience for putting a bag out to the bin every two weeks, but now, it's a waste of money. I was a big fan for two years and now I'm looking for an alternative product and I know there really isn't one. Biobag, you just lost a customer! For those considering purchasing these today, RUN AWAY, they aren't the bag they used to be!

5.0 Wonderful Product

Comments about Product:

I only ordered one box of these bags to try them out and wish I would have ordered more to begin with! I love them. It's so easy to empty the compost bucket with these bags, just tie a knot in the top and toss in the compost pile. And no smelly mess to clean out of the countertop compost bucket.

Comments about Product:

If these bags biodegrade as they're advertised to do, they will be terrific. We have composted for years, using a bucket. With these, we are able to put the bag in the bucket, and it keeps the mess to a miniumum--much easier to keep clean. We remain hopeful.

Comments about Product:

While I'm very glad someone has created a bag that's biodegradable, I think the technology is not yet up to the task. These are extremely fragile...today, a piece of bread poked a hole in the bag! I'm hopeful they will continue to improve this and other biodegradable bags, but I'm not sure I'd order these again.

Comments about Product:

I love these bags. I haven't test composting with them yet, but they are great little bags for scraps. They have a wide opening and fit a number of different receptacle. I will be testing them once we get our composter to see how well and quickly they decompose, but I think they will perform well from what I see of them.

Comments about Product:

I like these bags. Happy not to be putting plastic into landfill. I just wish they sold these in larger quantities - 100 count, and it would be great if they had a hole (like the doggy bags) so I could hang the bag on a cabinet handle. I can't wait for the day when plastic bags are expensive and these bags are cheaper!

Comments about Product:

Since I have switched over to canvas shopping bags, I no longer have the plastic grocery store bags to use for kitty litter waste and dog waste pick-up. I decided to try your compostable bags for those chores and they are working great. I feel a lot bettter knowing how quickly the compostable bags will break down.

Comments about Product:

Absolutely love them. I've given rolls to all my neighbors and they reward me with contributions to my compost bins. So easy for all of us!!! P.S. an unwelcome visitor to my cabinet enjoyed them this winter too. Seems a little mouse snuck in and my roll of bio bags looked like swiss cheese when she was done! She knew they were safe too!

5.0 These bags are great!

Comments about Product:

These bags are great! I had read several of the previous reviews and took to heart the advice concerning the care needed when removing the bags from packaging to avoid tearing them. They seem to be somewhat fragile when removing them from the package, but have held up very well when full. I haven't had any problems with tears or leaks so far. While there is some moisture in my compost can after taking out a full bag, that hasn't impacted my use of them. I will definitely continue using them.

Comments about Product:

So far, these bags have been great. We use them in our house for our countertop compost bin. They don't trap condensation like the plastic bags I used to use. The first one has been in my compost bin for about a week and a half now with no sign of decomposition, so not sure how long that will take. But so far, so good!

5.0 Great little bags

Comments about Product:

Great little bags. I live in an apt in NYC and composting is not available. The only thing I had been using those store plastic bags for was when I cleaned out my cat litter box. Since I have reusable shopping bags I have not been getting them anymore. These work well, strong enough to manage the litter. Only issue is you have to be careful how you tear them off the role - if you don't tear properly it is easy to rip the bag and it then becomes useless.

Comments about Product:

I originally bought these bags in search of an alternative to plastic bags for scooping litter out of the cat boxes. I LOVE these bags! I recommend this size and nothing smaller for scooping daily because the other bags seem to have too small an opening for the scooper. Because of these bags I went from using one plastic bag a day to maybe one a week!
