Product Description

DID YOU KNOW THAT NORMAL PLASTIC BAGS NEVER BIODEGRADE? Well, not for a thousand years or so, which in our book pretty much qualifies for "never". But have no fear: Green Genius trash bags have been proven to biodegrade under active landfill conditions, typically within 1 to 10 years (ASTM D5511). On top of that, our bags have everything the other guys have: They're just as puncture resistant as the national brands (3-ply strength, woohoo!) with ridiculously strong drawstrings. They're priced the same, too. PLUS, they're made from 40% recycled plastic. About the only thing the other bags have that we don't is the ability to sit around intact for the next thousand years or so. SAME STRENGTH. SAME PRICE. BIODEGRADABLE.TM

Haven't had any odd drawstring problems or tearing outside normal tearing from sharp objects. Wish I could get these locally.

I came across a 'trial size' box of 8 - 13 gallon bags at a local discount store. I wish now that I had gone back to purchase more because they're gone and seemingly unavailable anywhere else locally.

My husband and I like the bags very much, and have had absolutely no issues with them at all. We stopped using plastic bags years ago for various reasons (Glad and all the others), but found this brand to be a great alternative. Really like the idea of them being biodegradable.

**Fabulous. Some web research has shown that these bags have been discontinued. So much for that.

Based on the promise of being strong bags and biodegradable, we purchased three boxes of these: two boxes of the 13 gallon bags for the kitchen, and one box of the 30 gallon bags. Well, I can't vouch for the biodegradable, but they're so weak they'll rip if you look at them cross-eyed. Being a household of two people, one of whom eats out 5 days a week, it's not like we're generating an excessive amount of trash. Ended up double-bagging the kitchen pail. I dunno if all biodegradable bags are as flimsy as these, but I'm going back to Glad or Hefty.

I felt like these bags needed another review in their favor. I've been using them for about a year now. They do occasionally break at the top if they're too full/heavy, but they definitely don't have blowouts at the bottom or anything like that. They are a bit pricey in our local health food store, so I buy them here on amazon. I can understand people's frustration with paying extra for something for it not to work all the time, but until there is a better alternative I will keep using these. We recycle every possible thing we can, so I can feel good about putting these out on trash day knowing that they will eventually breakdown and whatever I put in them will too.

5-stars because they are the best biodegradable i have used. 4 if i was comparing them to "conventional" bags I have used before.

Saw these on clearance at my local grocery for $2.50 a box. I bought two boxes. I love them! They are better than the no-name "compare to hefty cinch sack" bags, and just as good as actual hefty cinch sack bags. Maybe a smidge thinner than the hefty steel sack bags though, and not as strong as contractor pick-up bags, but for day-to-day garbage waste they are 100% capable. I've gone through almost a box of the 30g bags, and they are holding up fine with at least 25 lbs of waste in them, no problem. No drawstring snaps, no stretching of the bag or tearing apart from bamboo skewers or other such sharp pointy things. These work great, just as well as the others I've used, come in at the right price point, and provide peace of mind that they will degrade in the landfills that our garbage invariably ends up in.

I love the Green Genius trash bags. They work beautifully and managed to reinstate marital bliss. (One of us is a certified tree-hugger and the other an oil junkie.) They are not compostable, but, that means they don't begin to 'compost' in your trash bin while waiting for the the garbage service. All other bags I tried turned into a mess in the bottom of the trash receptacle.

Amazon doesn't carry the drawstring 13 gallon kitchen bags, but, those are great too!

I've used many different bags claiming to be biodegradable and strong, and find that Green Genius are the best by far. I've used both their kitchen bags, and their yard bags and have been very pleased with both.

They are not as strong as regular plastic bags- so if you think they should be- then get regular plastic bags rather than buying these then complaining that they aren't as strong.

The only complaint I have is that Green Genius is no longer making these bags and they're hard to find now. Bummer. They're great bags!
