The good people at reuseit™ sent me samples of their product line of biodegradable garbage bags made from 100% recycled plastic. I looked forward to reviewing their products after learning more about them. They are made in the USA from recycled plastic collected from Chicago. Their plastic trash bags are infused with a natural additive that allows the plastic to biodegrade completely into natural elements. This reduces the amount of plastic that remains in landfills for thousands of years.
From the reuseit™ website:
According to EPI Global, the additive’s manufacturer, the trash bags will completely biodegrade (decomposing into simpler materials found in nature) when discarded in soil in the presence of micro-organisms. In a landfill, the bags will degrade within 12-24 months. Minimal packaging – each set of bags comes in a roll secured by a paper wrapper. Available in 4 gallon small, 13 gallon tall kitchen and 30 gallon lawn bags and don’t include ties.
I have now used all three types of their garbage bags: the small garbage bags, lawn garbage bags and the tall kitchen garbage bags. I have to say that I liked all three. Since they will degrade within 12-24 months in a landfill you might think they would not be very strong. On the contrary, these are very strong bags. I would test the strength of the bags by pulling, stretching and filling with heavy and sharp items and they help up very well. No breakages or leaks in these bags.
I would recommend using reuseit garbage bags. They come in three convenient sizes and are very dependable. Reuseit™ cares about the environment and their products show it.
