  • Potato starch from potatoes grown purely for their starch - no diversion from food supplies.
  • Potato starch requires less water & 40% less land to produce than corn.  No irrigation is used, only natural rainfall.
  • Using a compostable alternative to plastic reduces pollution and landfill.


  • Produced from non genetically modified potato starch, a more sustainable alternative to corn.
  • Certified compostable and biodegradable (including polymer).
  • Suitable for commercial composting bins or home composters.
  • No plasticisers and no polyethylene.
  • Recycled chlorine-free cardboard packaging that can be recycled again.

Title : Okay
Comment : Good value. Need to be careful to not tear bags in the beginning. Making sure you do not overfill them.

Title : Persevered and now absolutely love them!
Comment : When we started using these bags over two year ago, and in the beginning we too ripped them easily (to our great dissatisfaction). We however continued to use them and I cannot even recall having torn a single bag in the last 23 months, nor can my husband. Sure, we have come to love these bags and nothing else will enter our household! They have become an absolute favourite.

Title : Not bad
Comment : I do like these, but have a couple of qualms about them. They do tear fairly easily. Which is OK for me, as I tend to just use them for small amounts, but if you are planning on stuffing them full they probably will not work well. I am also a bit confused. The Biome description of the product states they are OK for commercial OR home composting, however on the bag itself it says it is suitable only for commercial composting. And that some areas may not offer this. Personally, that is not a huge problem, as I do not compost at home (living in an apartment and I do not have enough plants / garden to justify composting). I bought these for food scraps that are going into my every day bin anyway. So I figure these will break down better than a grocery bag from Woolies. But look into them a bit further if you plan to compost at home with them. Maybe they ARE OK, but you should check before you chuck them in your home compost bin.

Title : Review
Comment : I was really keen to use these while proactively reducing my kitchen waste. Unfortunately I found the bags tore very easily and given the cost I have found an alternative.
