Buy Eco Friendly Biodegradable Garbage Bags

Updated on April 21, 2011

Help Save the Planet One Small Step at a Time with Biodegradable Garbage Bags!

With the thousands of pounds of plastics being thrown into landfills every day in the form of grocery bags and disposable trash bags, the time has never been better to switch to biodegradable trash bags. By using compostable, biodegradable garbage bags, you'll be helping the environment tremendously. You can help prevent some of the hundreds of billions of trash bags from being thrown into landfills just by making one small change! These eco friendly bags are durable, and only start to degrade once in landfill conditions. Sturdy enough for regular use, these aren't delicate!

Wondering where you can purchase these? Scroll down for the link, as well as some reasons why you shouldn't strongly consider switching to biodegradable over plastic.

What if We Don't Use Biodegradable Garbage Bags?

Eventually, everyone will have to switch to biodegradable garbage bags. It's a no brainer for the environment. What if we didn't switch?

  • More and more wildlife and marine life would die off, causing declining numbers to fall further, interrupting the food chain
  • Mass pollution would amass from degrading plastic, resulting in tiny toxic bits of plastic in and near landfills.
  • Water supplies would eventually become tainted with the degrading plastic bits, requiring clean up (if even possible).
  • We would run out of fossil fuels to make the plastic bags. Since disposable plastic bags are made of petroleum, we will eventually run out.

The Benefits of Using Biodegradable Garbage Bags

Besides the fact that these will biodegrade into the environment, there are a number of other benefits you should consider:

  • Less plastic will be created, resulting in less emissions and energy used to produce the bags. That means less greenhouse gases, and a lesser threat of global warming vs. the production of plastic bags.
  • Less fossil fuels will be used. That lightens our dependence on petroleum and foreign oil, giving a chance to renewable resources like corn.
  • They can be composted in your own yard if you'd prefer.
  • You'll be influencing others to use biodegradable garbage bags just by using them. It's important for children to see what you're doing so they continue the tradition when they grow up!

Where to Buy Biodegradable Garbage Bags

You can start helping out the planet by reducing greenhouse gas emissions, our dependence on fossil fuels, and prevent plastic bags from entering the environment by investing in biodegradable garbage bags offered from Chartreuse. More about the bags:

  • They are made from non-GMO certified corn. That means scientists have altered the genetics of a plant or animal using genetic engineering. This leaves the growth of the given plant under patent by the company that created it. It can also result in lower quality food that is less nutritious.
  • These are engineered to specifically break down in landfill conditions (not in your trash barrel, don't worry).
  • They will decompose in just 3-6 months, as opposed to plastic which never truly decomposes.
