I was surprised after receiving these they are not to be used in backyard composting. I missed that in my initial review of the product. They will start breaking down if you don’t fill your canister soon enough. It’s the liquid from the decomposing scraps that start the process. Which is the goal. But...once in the compost bin and not exposed to moisture, that process stops. Typically I throw them away now.

I got these because the description said they are strong. Although they feel very thin, they do not rip easily like other brands I have purchased.

A good choice for our planet

I am unable to compost anything where I live, so use these as a way to reduce my plastic consumption. I don't think they're supposed to get wet, so I've taken to using them as liners in my small trash bins around the house. I feel better knowing that they'll break down in the landfill eons sooner than a plastic bag!
