These Compostable Flap Tie Handle Food Trash Bags from If You Care are made for the person who is looking to be more environmentally friendly. Made from completely compostable potato starch, these bags compost with the food scraps. One box contains 30 three-gallon trash bags. Designed with top handle flaps so it is easy and convenient when you're tying the bag up. A simple change that can make a difference, If You Care bags help reduce CO2 emissions, petroleum consumption and landfill waste.
The image on the product page says "now certified compostable for home" which is why I purchased these, but the box I received did not include that claim and actually stated that the bags could not be used for home composting (see photos below). I contacted Target customer support and they issued a refund for my purchase, but I wanted to make sure others are aware of what they are getting.
Fits perfectly in my compost container I bought here. Very durable — if directions are followed (no liquids s/b added, no sharp objects, e.g., eggshells — I put those in a napkin). Our compost trucks come once/week. I’ve been using these for over four years without any problem whatsoever.
I purchased these bags in the 13 gal size and to my surprise they worked just as well as other composting bags I have used and were able
to hold more food scraps than the 3 gal size. I liked the fact that they didn't rip and I had some wet food scraps which didn't tear the bag.
Although the bag didn't exactly fit the composting container I used it in; it still provided a lot more room to fill the bag without having to
keep replacing the bag as often. I am satisfied with the purchase of these bags since I now to have more than one option when I am composting
food scraps. Thank you. I would consider purchasing these again.
