Designed to break down

Our compostable bin bags contain GMO-free corn starch, PLA and PBAT and are suitable for both commercial and home composting. This "bio-plastic" material is designed to biodegrade in moist conditions and return to carbon dioxide and water without leaving any harmful residues in the process.

They'll breakdown in approximately 90 - 180 days depending on compost environment (please note that they will not break down adequately if sent to landfill). They're designed to hold organic waste, like food scraps, and be disposed of in a composting environment - thus diverting waste away from landfill.

We make compostable bags for most common bin sizes. There’s small 7-8L kitchen benchtop caddy bags right up to big 240L wheelie bin liners. And everything in between.

Most of our SKUs feature handles to make them easy to carry. All of them include extra microns for strength. They feel a little different to conventional plastic – they stretch more, smell better, and are soft to the touch. That’s because they’re designed to break down!

As such, you should always keep them in a dry, cool place (in a draw or cupboard is perfect). Beware of filling them with wet waste or leaving them in the bin for more than a few days - that could result in them becoming sticky and harder to remove (because they’ve been encouraged to decompose in situ!).

Not all ‘biodegradable’ products are created equal so always check the certifications. Our compostable bin liners are all certified to strict international standards (including the Australasian Bioplastics Association’s Seedling and Home Compostable Standards). And we go so far as to use non-toxic water-based inks in printing on these products.
