The Best Biodegradable (and Compostable) Trash Bags, According to Composters
By this point, you’re probably aware of the environmental impact of the single-use plastic bags that you get at the grocery store or with takeout from restaurants. But we don’t often include plastic trash bags in that conversation, even though plastic trash bags are single-use and have the same sort of environmental impact. (In fact, researchers have found that the sale of garbage bags actually increased in California after the state banned those plastic takeaway bags.) And though replacing your plastic trash bags might seem daunting, switching to biodegradable or compostable trash bags is a relatively simple swap that can minimize waste and demand for plastic products, overall.
