Many of the compostable bags look similar to plastic bags but they are usually made of cornstarch which will take a matter of months to breakdown entirely in suitable composting conditions. A good compostable bag should leave no harmful residues when it is disposed of. Whilst some compostable bags are certified for home composting others are not and these will take longer to compost unless disposed of in a commercial composting facility where higher temperatures are possible. If you are not sure which kind of bag is right for you then do some research online or get in touch with us……we are more than happy to advise.
Reusable bags make for a much easier choice simply pick a design that you like and make sure it is big enough and strong enough for your intended use. From lightweight foldable shopping bags to heavy duty canvas farmers market bags we have a bag for every purpose. Just don’t forget to take it with you!
