Compostable Poo Bags

Why use compostable poo bags?

compostable poo bagEveryday poo bags are made from plastic which takes decades to break down and decompose, so much so that every piece of plastic which has been created still exists to this day. 

More and more plastic items are being found on beaches across the world and within the ocean, this endangers our wildlife with some reports even suggesting that over 14 million tonnes of plastic end up in the ocean every year!

Using a compostable poop bag which is made from natural materials such as plants, ensures that used bags break down within a few weeks turning into natural biomass.

The difference between biodegradable & compostable poop bags?

Biodegradable poo bags are made of any material which breaks down from its original form, they will compose however will potentially leave toxic residue in the environment. Furthermore, the environmental conditions need to be perfect for the bags to decompose and in some cases can take decades just like plastic bags.

On the other hand, compostable poop bags are made from natural materials which once broken down can benefit the environment by fertilising soil. Most importantly, compostable poo bags do not leave any microplastics after use!

What are eco friendly poo bags made from?

The best environmentally friendly poo bags are made from natural materials such as plants. The Fetch.It poo bags we sell are made from GM Free Cornstarch and are certified as 100% compostable.

Be careful of some ‘eco friendly’ poop bags which say they are biodegradable! This could mean that they are still made from plastic materials and once broken down they leave microplastics in the environment.
