Great for countertop composting of food scraps.
Martin Stone
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.

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 bought these in Sept. 2012 to line a 1 gallon countertop compost pail after several years of using a large garbage bowl for kitchen waste. The pail has a vented lid with charcoal filter to prevent odors and a handle for carrying outside, so these liners do nothing more than keep the pail somewhat cleaner (they leak so the pail still has to be rinsed). If they do decompose, it takes much longer than large, dense items such as corncobs, banana peels and cauliflower stems. Coffee filters, shredded paper and newspaper have also disappeared, but these bloody green plastic bags are still there when I turn the pile. I'm afraid to cut them up for fear the bits will be ingested by wildlife scavenging in the compost. It's just not that much extra work to rinse the pail once a week. In fact, it's a little easier because I don't have to dry it before putting in another liner. Compostable bags are a great idea, but I'm afraid they don't work in reality. If they're not gone by Sept. 2013 I will remove them from the pile and they will go into the landfill with my municipal pickup. I'm no longer using them for food waste, but to pick up after my dog on walks.

Edited on Sept. 20, 2013 to add: It has been a year and these bags remain in my compost pile somewhat degraded, but still visible. I'm sure they're better for the environment than ordinary plastic bags, which take centuries to degrade, but I don't believe they're worthwhile as compost can liners. I wonder if they do harm to wildlife and the useful organisms in composting.

January 3 2015: I failed to remove them as I had said I would. Almost 2 ½ years and still there. I don't know what "compostable" is supposed to mean.

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!
