Did you know?

Plastic bags labelled as “biodegradable” or “compostable” may leave plastic particles in the soil.  Paper waste bags actually help the organic food waste cycle by adding much needed nutrients in the composting process.

Our food and yard waste bags are completely plastic-free. Made from 100% renewable and sustainable resources, all the raw materials that go into our bags – including vegetable-based inks and glues – are 100% compostable.

Biodegradable and compostable plastic bags sound good for the earth. Are they?

Made chiefly from petro-chemicals, even plastic bags labelled biodegradable or certified compostable do not fully disappear into the earth; they simply break down into smaller and smaller particles. No matter how tiny, these particles can still contaminate the compost. In contrast, BAG TO EARTH paper bags are 100% compostable.

Paper comes from trees. What about our forests?

We are committed to environmental sustainability. The paper we use is made from renewable resources that are regenerated in sustainably managed forests.
