These smaller sized biodegradable produce/bulk/barrier bags are perfect for carrying up to 1kg of fruit, vegies, nuts, seeds or dried goods. They contain corn starch bio-resins and extra microns for strength.
Containing corn starch bio-resins and extra microns, these certified compostable bags are light yet strong. These smaller compostable roll bags do not have a gusset allowing us to get 500 bags on a roll. These biodegradable bags are ideal for carrying dried fruit, nuts, seeds or a convenience load of fruit and vegies (holds approx. 4-5 apples). They also make great barrier bags for meat trays. They come on a cardboard core to conveniently fit regular bag roll holders and are recommended for supermarkets, grocers, butchers, and wholefood outlets.

What are the compostable bags made with?
Our compostable range is manufactured from corn starch bio-resins, PLA and PBAT. This new compostable material is designed to degrade in moist conditions and return to carbon dioxide and water without leaving harmful residues in the process. Our compostable products are all certified to strict international standards and we go so far as to use non-toxic inks in the printing on these products.
How long do they take to compost?
Compostable bags will take approximately 90-180 days to decompose depending on the composting environment. Industrial composting is typically quicker than home composting for two main reasons:
1) temperatures reached inside a home composting bin is usually only a few centigrade degrees higher than the outside temperature, and this is true for short time periods (in industrial composting, the temperatures reach 50°C – with peaks of 60-70°C – for a number of months).
2) home composting bins are managed by everyday people and the composting conditions might not always be ideal (in contrast, industrial composting plants are managed by qualified personnel and kept under ideal working conditions).
How do I use my compostable bin liners?
This new material is slightly different to the traditional plastic you may have used to line your bin in the past. It is designed to break down! To avoid disappointment, please change your liner every 2-3 days, avoid excessive moisture, avoid sharp objects, and store them in a cool dry place (avoid temperatures over 19 degrees celsius). Check the date of manufacture printed on the label and use within 8 months from this date.
