Our goal is to help divert all naturally organic waste from entering our landfills. This includes food waste, yard waste, paper waste and pet waste.
BioBag® Pet Waste Bags come in standard size, large size and on a roll for easy portability. They are a great alternative to regular polyethylene plastic bags. BioBag Pet Waste Bags are made from a resin (Mater-Bi®) derived from plants, vegetable oils and compostable polymers. BioBags are manufactured in the USA. Mater-Bi® is sourced from Italy.
In order to maintain our BPI certification, we had to change our original black bags to green because the green mix is more compostable. We also made the change so we could recycle the industrial ‘waste’ from the production of our compostable green food scrap bags as we try to move towards being a zero-waste company.
BioBags can be readily composted along with organic waste in municipal composting facilities. BioBag products meet the ASTM D6400 standard specification for the labeling of plastics designed to be aerobically composted in municipal or industrial facilities. Please check to make sure facilities are available in your community. Visit www.findacomposter.com.
While pet waste is not readily accepted at most compost facilities around the country, there are now a number of communities and parks successfully composting their dog waste and using BioBags as the method of collection. The future looks very bright for all waste separation initiatives. We are proud to play a part.
Be sure to do your research about home dog waste composting before adding any dog waste to your backyard compost piles.
