This is not a plant-based product, and does not belong in your compost. I looked up degradable versus biodegradable. Degradable plastics are still made from ordinary petroleum-based granules, called nurdles. These raw plastic pellets that are commonly found in our oceans do not contain any additives which helps break down the plastic. While they do break down into smaller particles, chemical residues eventually show up in the food chain and our bodies. The bottom line is that any plastic that is petroleum-based will contribute to the pollution of our environment and has a harmful effect on human and animal health. (via greenflavour dot blogspot dot com)

This product is legal but inappropriate. Do you want to go green? Get rid of plastics. (If you don't want to stop using the bags you have left, at least recycle them, don't put them in your compost.)

This is a Degradable bag, not a BIO-degradable bag. That means that it breaks down into tiny chemical residue that you can not see but are still there. Similar products (Lawn bags from the 90's) were found to poison fish and wild life, the chemicals were also found to work there way up the food chain. If you are like many people and use your compost dirt to grow fruit and vegetables that you later feed you family, you will almost certainly be getting some of that residue into your body and that of your family, the long term effects of which are not know.

Some of the more recent reviews clarify the problems I've been having with these bags. I had assumed that they would degrade in my compost. But not so! That's a real shame, because a compost-able bag would be much more practical. I guess I'll be fishing some un-degraded bags out of my compost shortly.

The up side to these bags is that they are sturdy and that they are a perfect fit for the counter-top compost pail. The down side is that I guess they're intended to be thrown in the trash.

These bags DO NOT biodegrade! I've fished them out of my year-old hot compost pile intact. They are the perfect size, and don't tear or leak, but they do not break down in the compost pile.

Just learned the unpleasant way that these Norpro bags are not accepted by the Portland Composts! Program.
All of our holiday composting was left for us on the curb by our recyclers/waste folks.
Solution = to empty the contents into REAL biodegradable bags and carry on.

I'm a careful consumer, but this "degradable" vs. "biodegradable" difference slipped past me. This is totally deceptive advertising, and Norpor should be ashamed of themselves. By the way, these bags do NOT easily fit the rectangular plastic 'mesh' kitchen counter compost pails - they are too small. I feel like I was rooked - if I had bought from a physical store, I would return these and get my money back.

These bags are not biodegradable. They are made from polyethylene, just like other plastic garbage bags. They are 'degradable' because they have trace amounts of metals embedded in the plastic, and over a period of time, the bags fall apart into small pieces. These small plastic pieces will persist in the soil for decades to centuries, as they are no longer degradable once the metal ions are washed away. So beware of what you are buying - small, expensive little bags that will contaminate your compost with small pieces of plastic.

Short and sweet review: Don't waste your money. These bags do not breakdown in your composter. I had a great batch of compost to put into my vegetable garden last week, except for the fact that I was forced to fish out all of the compost bags that had not "degraded". What a mess. Don't waste your money. I am going to use the bags until they are gone to simply keep my countertop compost pail clean, but never again will I put them into my composter.
