Our bags are BPI certified and are safe for all composting facilities and programs in Canada, the United States and Europe. Our bags are accepted even in Montreal where the first single-use plastic bag ban has been successfully put into the place. These bags are a proven eco-friendly solution in the research and testing taking place throughout the world.


They come in 2 resin colours, first being a neutral light beige that allows all your printing to stand out nicely and supports any brand. The second colour is a light green making it clear they are compostable.

Ink colours are not restricted but there is a maximum of 4 colours that can be printed on the bags.

Shelf Life:

These bags have a 12-month shelf life. This is an important validator to their ability to breakdown. They are not meant to last forever. So we work closely with you to ensure you have the right number of bags you need at their best quality.


They are more reliable than most traditional bag options since they come from a different source material giving them more elasticity.  Depending on the size and thickness of the bag you want to be produced will determine how much weight they can hold, but standard-sized bags typically have no problems holding between 14 to 20lbs.


Certified Compostable:

So what does it mean exactly to be certified compostable? It means our bags have been tested by the BPI (Biodegradable Products Institute) which is an external organization that verifies how our products meet their requirements and are true to what we say.  This is the regulatory body that completes rigorous testing on our products and others to ensure they are safe to be used in composting and will not add any harmful chemicals to the natural process.

Not all products are equal and without the BPI certification products are not verified to be safe for compost facilities, your backyard compost.

Our stock bags come in 2 sizes and the neutral bag colour mentioned in the product overview. They all carry an educational component to help support composting efforts regardless of where they are used and to also make it very clear these bags are safe to compost.

They are made from natural renewable resources, in our case they are corn-based. And since they are made from organic material themselves the respond the same way organic material responds in the decomposition process.

Just like your typical organic waste, decomposition is taken care of by bacteria that break it down and essentially eats it for their own food source. What is left behind is waste the bacteria expells which is often the nutrients that can not be consumed by the bacteria. This nutrient-rich by-product is what has been used as healthy soil additives for ages.

In fact, there is evidence composting practices were used over 10,000 years ago in different parts of the world. There is even evidence of composting methods being used by King Sargon during the Akkadian Dynasty, which lasted about 160 years between 2320 BC and 2120 BC. So composting is not a new concept. We are just getting smart and going back to some effective proven natural methods of enhancing our soil nutrients and dealing with waste.

Because our products are made from organic material or bioplastics, they too breakdown just like organic waste does when exposed to the same conditions. Bacteria is key to the fast breakdown of any organic material and are essential for our products as well. But when placed in a composting facility or combined with home composting, they typically break down within 8-16 weeks depending on how much bacteria is present, moisture and temperature. The decomposition of our products can even happen between 6-10 weeks when the conditions are ideal and there are other organic materials present with the products.

But the number 1 thing to remember is when they do breakdown, they leave nothing harmful behind. No microplastics are leached into the environment like other bags that claim to be eco-friendly such as biodegradable and oxo-degradable bags. That is why compostable products are revolutionary in our fight against harmful plastics but yet allow us to still have the convenience we have come to enjoy in our everyday life.
