Reviews For 13 Gallon Tall Compostable Kitchen Bags 12 pk
Based on 11 Reviews
Good, not amazing
You know they won't be as sturdy as plastic so that's just the way it is. Try to avoid anything wet getting in them — my first one broke and spilled trash everywhere. But I'm happy to not create more plastic waste.
Hold up well
I tried another brand of compostable bags and they fell apart in a day or two. These hold together pretty well as long as the compost isn't too wet.
These bags actually hold up for some time after getting wet, unlike the other compostable garbage bags I've tried. Highly recommend over the other popular brands I've tested.
Tall Kitchen Trash Bags
Pretty flimsy, too short
Inexpensive, no scents, easy to use
don't fit in can well at all!
Too short for most tall garbage cans. pretty flimsy, I used twice as many because I was afraid to make too full. Not sure if that's the pont.
Holds up well
I tried this and the biobag, after a few days the baobag was falling apart while these still held up.
These are my favorite. Compostable bags. They fit my trash can without stretching and getting weak.
Does the job
I use these to be more environmentally friendly, and I like these bags. Granted, they're not as strong as the bags I used to use, but I'm not contributing to the plastic waste out there, so I feel better and it's definitely worth it. I live in Los Angeles, where we've banned plastic bags at all grocery stores. Wonder how long before they move on to plastic kitchen bags.

I got these bags expecting to only use them for compost, so despite any review I read here on Thrive or other sites I was not worried about how they would hold up to my regular trash.
We live in an area where we have to separate our garbage by paper, plastic, and glass anyways, so food and paper can't ever be mixed. To ensure this happens, I actually have a recycle bin for our paper, glass, and plastic and only use my garbage can for food scraps and compostible items. These bags hold up much better than the corn starch bags I tried and I don't bother taking them to the landfill because we have our own compost pile at the house. We like to use it to garden as a natural fertilizer.
These bags are great, eco friendly, plastic free, and they break down rather well after just a few months. Great bags!

Bags need more strength
I thought these If You Care tall kitchen trash bags were going to be an outstanding addition to our green household. I was impressed with the list of Earth friendly benefits these trash bags had. Positive characteristics like phthalate free, sustainably farmed, compostable, and biodegradable.
They are good for food only discards because of the environmental friendly construction. Using these bags for ordinary trash causes them to rip and spill the contents.
