More about If You Care Biodegradable Food Waste Caddy Bags

Approximately 80 million tons of waste (U.S. EPA figures) which goes to landfill annually is material which under the right conditions, can be turned into compost, including food scraps, yard trimmings and non-recyclable paper. In a landfill environment, this organic material (food scraps etc) releases methane gas - a greenhouse gas - contributing to global warming. Diverting food scraps and yard trimmings from landfill to compost facilities contributes significantly to preserving our planet and natural resources.

Other Information

If you care certified compostable bags are made from 100% GMO free potato starch and a fully compostable polymer. These bags are completely polythene free and plasticizer free.
What makes potato starch stong? Starch is a mixture of a linear (amylose) and a branched (amylopectin) polymer of glucose. Potato starch has a higher percentage of amylopectin than either corn or wheat starch. The structural integrity of starch is due to amylopectin, so this helps make If You Care Certified-Compostable Bags stronger than bags made from corn starch.
any other reasons for potato starch? The potato starch used to make If You Care Certified Compostable Bags comes from starch potatoes, which are not grown for food but only for starch production: These potatoes are too high in starch to be good for food. Therefore, there is no diversion from food supplies. To produce the same amount of starch from these potatoes as from corn requires 40% less land. These potatoes require no irrigation, and need only normal rainfall. Corn requires much more water.
