BioBags: Bio-degradeable, Compostable Garbage Bags
"Have you blogged about BioBags yet?" Jane asked the other day from her kitchen. She came out with the box. "They're fantastic. You NEED to write about them."
BioBags are 100% bio-degradable, 100% compostable garbage bags. Made from cornstarch, they help to eliminate regular plastic bags from landfills, rivers, and forests. When disposed, BioBags will biodegrade as naturally as food scraps, leaving no harmful residue.
BioBags trash bags are GMO (Genetically Modified Organism) free and polyethlyene-free, with no polyethylene used in their production process. They're certified for use in organic agriculture, yet are shelf stable just like paper towels. And, importantly for those of us considering using them in our trashcans, they won't begin the composting process until the proper conditions are met - moisture, warmth and micro-organisms.
Plus, Jane loves them. Which is good enough for us.

Starch based (hydro-biodegradable) plastics are not a good idea, because they emit methane, they cause problems in the recycling waste stream, they are too expensive, and are not strong enough.
see www.degradable.net for info on oxo-biodegradable plastic.
