Why Use If You Care Certified Compostable Bags?
Approximately 80 million tons of waste (U.S. EPA figures) which goes to landfill annually is material which under the right conditions, can be turned into compost, including food scraps, yard trimmings and non-recyclable paper. In a landfill environment, this organic material (food scraps etc.) releases methane gas - a greenhouse gas - contributing to global warming. Diverting food scraps and yard trimming from landfill to compost facilities - either municipal or commercial in areas where they were available - contributes significantly to preserving our planet and natural resources.
If You Care Certified Compostable Bags are made from 100% GMO free potato starch and a fully compostable polymer. These bags are completely polyethylene free and plasticizer free.
