Little steps can make a big difference, and that starts with reducing plastic waste. BioBag is here to help. They are a world leader in providing compostable bags and films that collect organic waste and dedicated to supporting the Non-GMO movement.
The History of Biobags
BioBag isn’t a large petroleum-based plastic bag company that is looking to dabble in the world of compostable bags. Instead, it is a small company - with dedicated employees who are entirely committed to producing certified compostable bags and films. It’s all they do.
BioBags Americas was established in 2002 with BioGroups USA, and its founders Dave Williams and Terry Phillips. They believed that compostable bags were one of the answers to solving food waste separation issues and contributing to the growing Zero Waste initiative.
BioBag Company Mission
Biobag strives to keep organic waste from ever entering a landfill. Instead of regular plastic bags, BioBag uses resin derived from sustainably-sourced plants, vegetable oils, and compostable polymers that can be consumed by microorganisms that live in our soils. Thanks to this, BioBags can be composted along with organic waste at municipal composting facilities.
Benefits of BioBag
BioBag has one focus: compostable bags and films. Some of the benefits of their dedicated approach include:
- BioBag works closely with community governments to establish food waste separation programs and educate consumers on the benefits of keeping food waste and other compostable items from entering landfills.
- It sources resin from Italy, as no North American resin supplier can guarantee GMO-Free crops.
- BioBags are certified compostable according to the US Standard ASTM D6400 and the European Standard EN 13432. Customers can be confident that they are using a compostable product made with the highest integrity on the market.

So, What is Composting?
Transform your scraps into nutrient-rich mulch that will help you grow more fruits and vegetables. When organic materials are exposed to air and water, microorganisms break them down into compost. For more on the how - as well as the benefits to this process - read here.
What is a GMO?
BioBag goes out of its way to ensure that it is using non-GMO resins. This way, you know you’re not putting questionable things back into the earth when you compost. But what are GMOs, and why should we put effort into avoiding them?
