If You Care design environmentally friendly kitchen and baking essentials that are free from chlorine, bleaches and paraffin waxes.

Deteriorates too soon!

The eco credentials of this product are very good. HOWEVER, as soon as these bin liners come into contact with anything damp, they start to break down. Many times, I have pulled the bag out of the bin tray and a whole mess ensues! Crap everywhere! I am switching to other brands of compostable bin liners.

Very thin but...

I have had to tell my housemates not to fill the bin as much as we normally do, as these bags tear as you lift them out of the bin. But, they are so much better for the environment that I will continue to use them.
It is a small price to pay, really.

Inconsistent

I guess it depends what we put in them but sometimes they are great, and other times they break. If you put anything wet in there e.g. tea bags they tend not to last as long. We are buying another pack though, so on average they are ok.
