BioBag 33 Gallon Lawn and Leaf Bags - 5 Count
Since many communities have banned the use of regular plastic bags for yard waste removal, many people have resorted to those big paper bags. This was because polyethylene-based plastic bags cannot be composted with the yard waste or burned because they will not break down or create toxic fumes. Studies show paper bags are difficult for consumers to use and store, have a limited fill capacity (usually 28 gallons), and do not hold up well in wet weather. We strongly recommend that wet grass clippings be left on the lawn, where the clippings will quickly biodegrade and add nutrient value to your lawn. Placing wet grass clippings in either a paper bag or a BioBag can stimulate bag decomposition within three or four days.
Bio Bags are made from a compostable material called Mater-Bi. Because the material is of agricultural origin (such as cornstarch and vegetable oil), it reduces greenhouse gas emissions and the consumption of energy typically used in plastic production. Not only are these bags durable but also reliable while protecting the environment. The Lawn and Leaf Bio Bags are designed to hold all types of lawn waste and are durable enough for sticks and branches. Lawn and Leaf Bio Bags make yard clean up a breeze.
