Casa Verde: BioBags

We talk often about ditching plastic bags in favor of resuable shopping bags and recycling whatever you can. But, no matter how hard you work to be environmentally conscious, at the end of the day (or week), you still have to take out the trash. Someone still has to take out the trash. When that time comes, toss your trash away in BioBags, certified 100-percent biodegradable and 100-percent compostable bags, and the first "bag from corn." My dear city of San Francisco recently sent 100,000 rolls of BioBags to residents to educate them on the importance of diverting food and other biodegradable waste from entering landfills, and they're now available at over 100 outlets in the Bay Area. BioBags come as kitchen compost bags, tall-kitchen bags, lawn and leaf bags, cat-pan liners, and waste-system bags — pick your flavor. They're also available at most natural-food stores in the US, or you can order yours online.

I just found these on my last trip to Wal-Mart (I HATE shopping there, but when you need a lot on a budget, what can you do). Anyway, I can't wait to try them.

I was just thinking about this the other day how many of the bags we use for garbage are not biodegradable. I'll have to look into these. Now if I could get my husband and roommate to remember to bring the canvas bags to the grocery store!

I use their compost pail liners. My compost pail is pretty big (,36-678,default,cp.html) and these fit well - there is a couple of inches of overlap. They wouldn't work well for smaller compost pails, IMO. They really are compostable! Mine are unidentifiable in the compost bin after a couple of weeks. You can't leave then in your pail too long or they will start breaking down in the pail -- I take mine out about every 5 days.
