I have a new product I’ve tried that I can’t wait to share with you! It’s called Bio Bag. Finally! An alternative to wasteful, harmful plastic bags. The products from Bio Bag are compostable! Super genius product.
I was really eager to try out the resealable sandwich bags. I am a mother of 3 kids and we are usually on the go. It’s super simple to buy bulk bags of snacks and throw some in a sandwich bag. Into the diaper bag they go, and they’re quite the lifesaver. I always feel so horrible about using them because they’re so wasteful! Not only wasteful but harmful to the Earth as they enter our landfil.
You can see, they are very different than the traditional plastic sandwich bag. I was curious to see how well they would hold up to my abuse. Surprisingly, it went very well. The resealable zipper actually held up better than the name brand bags I usually use. After a full day out, I’m usually picking up toddler snacks from the inside of the diaper bag. Not one spill with Bio Bag!
They are also BPA & Polyethylene free, and, approved by the FDA! In a time where being more “green” is something most of us strive for, Bio Bag has made one area of life quite simple for us.
Quick note on how to properly dispose/use Bio Bag
“Landfill Placement of BioBags:
BioBags are designed to be composted and returned naturally back to the earth. They are not designed to be placed in a landfill.
If BioBags are placed in an open landfill they will decompose at a rate similar to other biodegradable materials in the same setting. If BioBags are placed in an anaerobic (air-locked) landfill and deprived of oxygen and the existence of the micro-organisms that ³eat² naturally biodegradable materials, their ability to decompose will be severely restricted. This is true of all biodegradable materials placed in this setting, including paper, yard waste and food waste. The majority of landfills in the U.S. are anaerobic (air-locked) landfills. As a consumer, you should be quite suspicious of any manufacturer making claims that their products will biodegrade quickly in an air-locked landfill.”
