A compostable waste bag is more fragile than a plastic waste bag. This is something to keep in mind. It's partly for this reason that the packaging is made of normal plastic (PE). Heat and moisture can cause a compostable waste bag to break down earlier than desired, causing the bag to tear. We always recommend the following when using a compostable waste bag:
- Do not use the bag in the rubbish bin for longer than 10 days.
- Keep the roll of waste bags in a cool, dry place. Always keep the roll in the packaging, as this provides a little more protection.
- Take care with moist organic waste.
- Do not use the compostable waste bag for discarding warm items (food, tea bags, etc.). The compostable waste bag is heat resistant up to 50°C only.
