Conquering Compost: How to Use Eco Wrap's Compostable Bags Effectively

Welcome to the wonderful world of composting! Eco Wrap is here to help you navigate this eco-friendly practice with our amazing compostable bags. But first things first – understanding what these bags are and how to use them effectively is key.

What are Compostable Bags and How Do They Differ from Plastic?

Unlike traditional plastic bags that linger in landfills for years, Eco Wrap's compostable bags are made from plant-based materials. These materials are designed to break down naturally under specific conditions in a compost pile or designated green bin. This breakdown process creates nutrient-rich soil that can be used to nourish your plants!

Using Eco Wrap's Compostable Bags Like a Pro:

Here's how you can incorporate Eco Wrap's compostable bags seamlessly into your composting routine:

  • Know Your Compostables: Eco Wrap's bags are perfect for food scraps like vegetable peels, fruit cores, eggshells, coffee grounds, and tea bags.
  • Keep it Clean: While the bags are designed to handle food waste, avoid putting greasy or oily items directly inside.
  • Compost with Confidence: Place your filled Eco Wrap bag directly into your home composting system or designated green bin for collection.
  • Size Matters: Choose the appropriate bag size for your needs. We offer a variety of sizes to accommodate different amounts of food scraps.

Maximizing Your Composting Success:

  • Store Wisely: Keep your Eco Wrap compostable bags in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight to maintain their integrity.
  • Embrace Variety: Utilize Eco Wrap's compostable bags for various compostable materials like yard waste (leaves, twigs) alongside your kitchen scraps.
  • The Power of Knowledge: Familiarize yourself with your local composting guidelines to ensure proper disposal in designated green bins.

Beyond the Basics:

  • Dealing with Dairy and Meat: While not recommended for everyday use, Eco Wrap offers BPI-certified compostable bags specifically designed for these items in some composting facilities. Check with your local composting program for specific guidelines.
  • Industrial Composting: Eco Wrap's compostable bags are suitable for industrial composting facilities alongside other organic materials.

Composting with Eco Wrap's bags is a simple yet impactful way to reduce waste and create valuable fertilizer for your garden. Remember, a little goes a long way! By following these tips and embracing a mindful approach, you'll be a composting champion in no time.
