Review: BioBags

Published 00:24 am

More and more Americans are seeking sustainable methods of disposing of solid waste. With more people switching to compost piles, reusable shopping bags and the recycling of trash, those who practice sustainable living may ask themselves: "What about trash bags?"

BioBags, a company that creates corn-based, biodegradable trash bags, offers one answer to this question. The material used to make these earth-friendly bags is fully compostable, and its unique breathable texture can allow for aerobic decomposition of the bag as well as its contents. For this reason, Biobags are a highly preferable option for use in trash cans, compost bins, and stores.

The advantages offered by BioBags begin with their production. Unlike plastic trash bags and shopping bags, which are manufactured using petroleum, Biobags are made using a natural and renewable resource: corn. BioBags contain no polyethylene or any other synthesized material. This means that the earth-friendly trash bags are genuinely sustainable: no nonrenewable material must be used in their production.

BioBags eliminate the need for excessive landfill use because they divert biodegradable trash into compost bins, not landfills. While some people limit their use of compost bins because they have no viable options for indoor trash bags, they can use BioBags indoors and then transfer the fully compostable material into their compost bins, along with all the contents of the bag. BioBags may spark a resurgence in compost interest by enabling a simpler process.

Pet owners who are interesting in composting cat litter or composting dog feces will find BioBags to be additionally useful. BioBags as a company creates one of the only sustainable and biodegradable bags made especially for pet waste disposal. Not only does this help to keep yards and sidewalks clean, but it enables a much easier process for disposing of your pets' waste in an ecologically responsible manner.

The many forms of BioBags can be applied to nearly any setting that would ordinarily require a plastic bag. Trash cans in kitchens, bedrooms, and bathrooms can all be lined with BioBags, and they can also be used to dispose of lawn waste or to carry groceries. The possibilities are truly limitless, and offer innovation in the realm of sustainable living.

The one serious drawback of BioBags is that they are quite difficult to find in some cities, although dozens of outlets carry them in major eco-Meccas like Seattle and San Fransisco. Still, BioBags can be purchased online from virtual retailers, and consumers may be able to talk local health retail stores into carrying them. The cost of BioBags, which are nominally pricier than conventional trashbags, is also offputting to a few consumers.

  • Why use BioBags Dog Waste Bags instead of grocery bags or other plastic poop bags? Regular polyethylene-based plastic bags (like grocery bags or regular poop bags) can take over 100 years to degrade. Less than 2% of all plastic bags get recycled and plastic does not completely recycle. Plastic bags litter our streets, backwoods and waterways. Thousands of animals die from eating or getting caught up in plastic debris.
  • BioBags are superior to other bags. 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. These pieces cause serious harm when mistaken by animals and birds for food. BioBag products use no polyethylene in the production process. BioBags are also GMO-free!
  • BioBags pack down small and have a silky texture.
  • Compostable - BioBags are BPI certified to meet the ASTM D6400 specification. BPI Certification #891053
