The Ten Second Plastic Bag Lesson
Regular polyethylene-based plastic bags can take over 100 years to degrade and are not compostable. Less than 2% of all plastic bags ever get recycled. Studies indicate that 100,000 marine animals and 2 million birds die every year from ingesting or being caught up in plastic debris.
Some manufacturers are blending additives to polyethylene to produce "degradable" bags. Unfortunately, this process fragments the bags into pieces of plastic debris that do not meet the ASTM D6400 standard for biodegradable and compostable plastic.
BioBag products are based on starch, vegetable oil and other renewable resources. No polyethylene is used in the production process. We are fully certified by the Biodegradable Products Institute to be 100% biodegradable and 100% compostable. Please be sure the biodegradable products you buy are properly certified.
Meets ASTM D6400
This certification assures that BioBag products meet the specifications found in ASTM D 6400 and will biodegrade rapidly & safely when composted in a municipal or commercial facility. Please check to make sure facilities are available in your community.

BioBags are great for the collection of leaves and other biodegradable yard debris. For best results, place filled BioBags in your compost or at curbside on pavement or gravel. Placing filled bags on wet grass may stimulate bag decomposition. Do not fill bag entirely with wet grass clippings. Grass Clippings left on the lawn after mowing decompose rapidly and add nutrient value to your soil.
