They are made from natural renewable resources; in our case, they are corn-based. Since they are made from organic material themselves, they 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 the bags down and essentially eat them for their own food source. What is left behind is waste the bacteria expels, which often consists of the nutrients that can not be consumed by the bacteria. This nutrient-rich by-product is what has been used as a healthy soil additive 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 break down just like organic waste does when exposed to the same conditions. Bacteria are key to the fast breakdown of any organic material and are essential for our products as well. When placed in a composting facility or combined with home composting, our bags 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.

The number 1 thing to remember is when they do break down, our bags leave nothing harmful behind. No micro-plastics are leached into the environment like with other bags that claim to be eco-friendly such as “biodegradable” and “oxo-degradable” bags. That is why certified compostable products are revolutionary in our fight against harmful plastics while allowing us to still have the convenience we have come to enjoy in our everyday life.
