- Certified biodegradable & compostable
- No Microplastics
BioBag are known predominantly for their compostable garbage bag / bin liner made from corn starch. They are made from corn starch and can be put in to your compost bin, breaking down in to plant food like the rest of your food scraps and compostable materials. They have around a 2 year shelf life before they start to degrade in normal conditions, but we do recommend you use them within 12 months of purchase to allow for some wiggle room between manufacturing, storage at the supplier and the short time they live on our shelves.
The Food & Freezer Bags are designed specifically for use in the freezer and can then be composted after use. They are an affordable alternative to using reusable silicone bags which take quite the investment to get a good supply in your kitchen ready to use.
Ini the compost environment, they break down like any other food scraps in a matter of weeks. In landfill, they will still break down anaerobially. These are NOT a plastic bag. They are also NOT those 'sneaky' degradable bags that simply break down in to smaller pieces of plastic. They are 100% home compostable as they can biodegrade at the temperature of a home composting bin. If BioBag is accidentally litter and end up in waterways or the ocean or along the side of the road, they will break down over a period of a few months.
BioBag have been certified according to ISO9001 and ISO14001as well as European Standard EN 13432, US Standard D6400 and Australian Standard AS4736. They also hold certifications with AIB Vincotte (OK Compost), DIN Certco, BPI (USA) and other organisations such as GMO-Free.
