    Size is smaller than I was led to believe on the photo on the box, but it does work for the small waste basket in my bathroom. Can't overfill, so there is room to tie off, since there are no "handles" or self-ties. Been looking for compostable bags to use for wastebaskets since using recycled bags for groceries.

    Unfortunately this is NOT a compostable product. As the box actually says "compostable plastic". But any plastic product is not actually compostable. It may break down more than traditional plastic bags, but it will not completely degrade over time. This is a nice little marketing and labeling gimmick in the plastic bag industry. Forget the ASTM standard - that is only a "degradable" standard, not a "biodegradable" standard. I just want you to know, you are not buying a more ecological bag when you buy these. Stick to bags which are labeled "biodegradable" but even better yet, only buy bags that are certified by the BPI (biodegradable products institute), because manufacturers can call their product "biodegradable" without anyone regulating it. Yes, all the complaints about biodegradable bags are true - they are thinner; they leak; they do all that stuff, but that's also how you know they are made of organic material that will decompose. Just double up the bags and move on. Sorry to be a downer, but you should know the truth about what you are buying!

            These are thicker than other bags and hold together MUCH better. The only brand I'll buy!

              This product is great! It fits perfectly inside my compost bin next to my kitchen sink. I use it and fill it up almost daily then just toss the bag into my outdoor green waste bin. Helping the environment while maintaining a tidy kitchen sink area. Hope this product is around for a long while.

              I tried other biodegradable trash bags before, and didn't like how flimsy they were. This one seems to have a bit more weight to it, and so far it has stood up to our trash : )

                  I love this bag. I intentionally bought these bags for the sole reason of feline waste disposal. I don't like the fact that the litter is biodegradable, and the bags I was using were not (i.e. plastic store brand bags). Although I have to pay for the bags, its worth it knowing that those bags won't be around for very long. All bags really should be made of biodegradeable materials.

                        A perfect size to hold 2 or 3 days of kitchen food scraps, it even holds boiling hot coffee grounds without leaking. With the tight seal on the kitchen collector there is NO smell and no fruit flies!
