Exactly what I want for my business
Posted by PattyB in Montana on Apr 8th 2021
I hate using hydrocarbon-based plastics, but I want the sort of security that comes with plastic. Plastic is mostly not recyclable, so at best I could find recycled material bags that themselves couldn't be recycled. Compostable is the best possible option, even if only compostable in a commercial facility. These compostable cello bags are AMAZING, exactly what I hoped for, in various sizes that meet my needs, at very reasonable prices, and solid customer service!
Important caveat: I cannot yet personally confirm compostability, but I am going to experiment. Since compostable is a huge setting point, I'd like to see more info about the testing of these. Not marketing gimmicks, but studies communicated in a digestible (pun) manner.
