If You Care Lawn and Leaf Bags Compostable 33 Gallon Description

  • Certified Compostable
  • No Plasticizers & No Polethylene
  • Made with GMO-Free Potatoes

If You Care Certified Compostable Trash Bags are made from potato starch from non-GMO starch potatoes blended with a certified, fully compostable polymer. No plasticizers are added.
 
What Makes Potato Starch Strong?
Starch is a mixture of a linear (amylose) and a branched (amylopectin) polymer of glucose. Potato starch has a higher percentage of amylopectin than either corn or wheat starch. Amylopectin gives starch its structural integrity, so it helps make If You Care Certified Compostable Bags stronger than bags made from corn starch.
 
Any Other Reasons for Potato Starch?
The potato starch used to make If You Care Certified Compostable Bags comes from starch potatoes, which are not grown as a food source, but only for starch production. These potatoes are too high in starch to be good for food. Therefore, there is no diversion from food supplies. To produce the same amount of starch from these potatoes as from corn requires 40% less land. These potatoes require no irrigation, and need only normal rainfall. Corn requires much more water.
 
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 (leaves, grass etc.) releases methane gas – a greenhouse gas – contributing to global warming. Diverting food scraps and yard trimmings from landfill to compost facilities – either municipal or commercial in areas where available – contributes significantly to preserving our planet and natural resources.

Directions

How To Use

These bags are for leaves and compostable yard waste. Grass tends to accelerate the decomposition of these bags, therefore we recommend that you do not leave bags on your lawn for an extended time, nor fill bags entirely with grass clippings. Grass clippings which remain on your lawn decompose quickly and provide nutrients to your lawn. Place bags promptly on pavement or gravel while waiting for collection.
