Paper is beneficial to a successful organic waste diversion program.

We understand your success is partly dependent on participation rates. Research shows that participation is driven by a number of variables such as frequency of collection, size of curbside collection bin and longevity of your program;  participation rates do not increase with the inclusion of plastic in the diversion process.

Your organic waste diversion program can also benefit from paper for the following reasons:

  • Paper bags can lower processing and capital costs
  • Paper bags  help turn organic waste into super quality compost that can be returned to the community
  • Paper bags enable the organic contents to “breathe” – reducing odors and potential health hazards

Stringent testing in Canada, the US and Europe shows that BAG TO EARTH compostable food and yard waste bags have absolutely no negative impact on either the composting system or the finished compost.

Bag To Earth is committed to environmental sustainability and all of our paper bags are made from renewable and responsibly-managed sustainable resources. All the raw materials, including glues and vegetable-based inks, are certified compostable and petroleum-free.   The use of paper has a low environmental impact, compared to the life cycle of alternative materials, such as plastic.
