If You Care Certified Compostable Lawn and Leaf Bags are made from non-GMO starch potatoes blended with a certified, fully compostable polymer. No plastic is added.
Potato Starch is stronger than corn and wheat starch because it has a higher percentage of amylopectin which gives starch its structural integrity. Starch potatoes are also grown solely for starch and are not a food source so there is no diversion from food supplies. For the same amount of starch to be produced from these for potatoes compared to corn starch, these potatoes use 40% less land. Only normal rainfall is required for these potatoes to grow unlike corn that needs to have extra irrigation.
Every year 80 million tons of waste goes to landfill that could be turned into compost (including food scraps, yard trimmings and non-recyclable paper). In a landfill environment, these organic materials release methane (gas a greenhouse gas) that contributes to global warming. Diverting food scraps and yard trimmings from landfill to compost facilities either municipal or commercial in areas where available contributes significantly to preserving our planet and natural resources.
