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

    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.
