@BioBag Certified Compostable Bags #Review

On my search for a more eco-friendly poo bag, I have another bag I'd like to share with you! I'd like to introduce you to BioBag. BioBags are certified compostable bags made from plants, vegetable oil, and a new innovative product called Mater-Bi. Mater-Bi is made from plants (like corn) and biodegradable polymers allowing it to be as versatile as plastic, yet still be consumed by micro-organisms in the soil. I received one of all three available packs of BioBags for review: one 3-pack of bags on a spindle roll (for use in a bag dispenser), one box of standard sized bags, and one box of large sized bags.


I like the feel of these bags. They feel thick and durable, and have plenty of room to *safely* pick up dog waste from the lawn. These would work well to clean out a cat litter box as well, but just remember to not compost cat waste. Although these bags will break down, and then allow waste to break down once exposed to the air as well, I still decided to not tie these bags, and to flush to dog poop I had picked up, and then compost the bags. It felt so much better to use biodegradable bags vs throwing plastic bags in the trash! I will never be able to use regular plastic waste bags again.


Not only does BioBag produce pet waste bags, but they also make food waste bags, lawn & leaf bags, packaging film, sandwich bags, and shopping bags too!

BioBags comply with California's state laws regarding compost-ability and biodegradability of products, and are available for purchase online, or in stores in the states of California, Oregon, Minnesota, Texas and Washington. BioBags are also available for purchase in Canada.

You can connect with BioBag via their blog, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Google +, Instagram, and YouTube. You can also sign up for their newsletter to stay up to date on BioBag product news, events, tips, and coupons!

Look out for a giveaway event in the near future featuring BioBags as part of the prize!

  2. I think I've actually seen these at parks where they have the posts that you can pull poop bags out of, which is impressive that a park would invest in biodegradable poop bags in the first place!

  4. I love the idea of a greener plastic bag. We are pretty green with our poop bags, though. We reuse plastic grocery bags as poop bags as well as as garbage bags.

  5. I'm surprised people still use regular, non-compostable plastic bags for things like picking up their dogs' poops, especially since there are so many companies and products and options out there today!

  6. I have five Treeing Walker Coonhounds of my own (ranging from 52 to over 70 pounds) that I walk regularly, plus have the dogs from my rescue, and the dogs that are on rescue transports I drive, and we always pick up any poop the dogs leave behind. Non-biodegradable bags are an issue - especially with as many as you can imagine we go through. I try to go green on everything I can and these bags sound perfect!

  22. Biodegradable waste bags are a great idea. We don't use doggie waste bags, but my fiance' said that she is thinking about cleaning up the droppings in the back yard and these would be great for that purpose. Thanks for the info.
