I have composted so much food waste that my outdoor bin is almost full.
R. Vancook
When we tore them apart, even if we were careful, sometimes at least one of the two bags we were trying to separate would tear to the point that it couldn't be used.
Karen K. Hart
And it's a good feeling to know you're helping sustain an environmentally friendly product while reducing the amount of plastic made and sent to the landfill.

We used to just dump our compostable kitchen stuff straight into the composting crock, and it was always a horrendous mess when we would carry it out to the main compost bin to empty. Now that I've started using these bags, it's a much less unpleasant task (and we empty the crock more often now, too, because we aren't both trying to put the task off hoping the other will break down and do it instead! :D )

A couple of caveats: the bags ARE, as advertised, biodegradable, so if you leave them in the crock full of wet kitchen scraps for too long, they will start to seep liquid out into the crock. It's more like osmosis - they don't really seem to develop holes at this point, but they kind of ooze liquid through a little bit. I'd say five days is the maximum time you should leave them in there. If you forget and they do start to seep, however, the task of taking the bag out to the compost bin and then washing the crock is still much less objectionable, since the inside of the crock is only wet, not stuck full of coffee grounds and bits of eggshell and all that other stuff I used to hate having to clean out of it every time.

They are also a bit fragile. The practice of cramming in as much stuff as you can by shoving down on top of the contents is just not a good idea here - the bags can be easily torn by hard materials such as banana stems, eggshells, grape stems and the like.

So basically the upshot of the whole thing is: don't shove too much into the compost crock, remove the bags often, and you will find that these bags make your counter-top compost collecting a much more pleasant task.

I've been composting for several years, and bought one of those crocks that sits on the counter. I just put things in the crock and carried them out to the compost for years. But every time, you then have to wash out the messy, stinky crock. With these bags, the mess (and stink) is greatly reduced. I just put a folded paper towel in the bottom (to catch juices) and then the bag. When it is full it comes out of the crock much better than loose scraps. I started using them last year, and when I turned the compost this summer there was no trace of the older bags so they DO biodegrade as stated. The only thing I wish is that they were a little smaller; they are so big they stick out of the crock quite a bit and it seems wasteful.

Love how easy these make it to empty the under-sink compost bucket into the composter. Cuts down on the cleaning of the bucket, too (though it still usually needs a good rinse). Found that the bags tend to slip down into the bucket so we simply pull a little bit over the outer edge, twist it into a knot and hold it there with a small binder clip.

After two years in my bin, I uncovered black moist compost and...wait for it....UN-decomposed green bags. What the heck? "Compostable" bags that do not Compost. Have returned to putting everything in my compost can and just dumping into the composting bin and then rinsing-out the can.

And after some research, you discover that these bags are made from corn; corn that is mostly fertilized in the US from derived petroleum products; great I'm composting and contributing to greenhouse gases all at the same time!

SF now has mandatory composting so we have to buy biodegradable bags. Geez, another expense. At least these are cheaper to buy on Amazon than at my local hardware store.

They do leak through so I put them in a big tupperware and keep in the fridge.

The bags are thin. They leak or rip easily if you put any damp or wet food in. Also, they easily rip when you are trying to get a new bag to put into your compost container.

If you use this for commerical composting, then I would definitely recommend getting a thicker bag instead (such as Bag-To-Nature or EcoSafe brands)

I use these in a compost pail in my kitchen. They make it a little more convenient to empty the pail into the compost pile outside, but they are not leak proof so I am still faced with a messy pail nearly every time. The bags do break down in the outdoor pile, but not quickly. When I turn the pile, the kitchen scraps from the bags will have been broken down and converted into compost, but the ragged bags are still recognizable. I have been using them for a year, and will have to screen bag fragments out of finished compost.

I purchased a pack of 4 of these to use for collecting kitchen scraps to add to my three compost piles (each in different stages of decomposition). Over the last year, I have had to screen out the green bags and pass them to the next level of decomposition along with things like corn cobs and branches. The corn cobs break down faster than the biobags! I had torn the bags into small bits to help them break down faster but that hasn't helped. I've stopped using the bags. And have two unopened boxes in my basement. What a disappointment!
