6.75cm x 6.75cm x 22.5cm


If You Care Compostable Food Bags are made from potato starch from non-GMO starch potatoes blended with a certified, fully compostable polymer. No plasticizers are added.. Starch is a mixture of a linear (amylose) and a branched (amylopectin) polymer of glucose. Potato starch has a higher percentage of amylopectin than either corn or wheat starch. Amylopectin gives starch its structural integrity, so it helps make If You Care Compostable Trash Bags stronger than bags made from corn starch. The potato starch used to make If You Care Compostable Trash Bags comes from starch potatoes, which are not grown as a food source, but only for starch production. These potatoes are too high in starch to be good for food. Therefore, there is no diversion from food supplies. In addition, to produce the same amount of starch from these potatoes as from corn requires 40% less land. Other compostable bags are made from corn which requires more water, but potatoes require no irrigation, and need only normal rainfall. Approximately 80 million tons of waste (U.S. EPA figures) which goes to landfill annually is material which under the right conditions, can be turned into compost, including food scraps, yard trimmings and non-recyclable paper. In a landfill environment, this trapped organic material (leaves, grass etc.) releases methane gas – a greenhouse gas – contributing to global warming. Diverting food scraps and yard trimmings from landfill to compost facilities – either municipal or commercial in areas where available – contributes significantly to preserving our planet and natural resources.

If YOU care make it cheaper

Prices make this product inaccessible to most, if the company truly cared they would find a way to produce something suitably eco-friendly at a reasonable rate. £10 for a pack of bin bags is too much

Great product but cheaper elsewhere

Ive been using these liners for a couple of years and good to see theyre now available on Ocado but theyre nearly double the price. Come on Ocado, you surely have buying power.

Disappointing for the price

Easily the most expensive bin liners I have ever bought and probably amongst the worst. They are just not strong enough and tear easily. And no, I didnt overfill them. The only good point for me is that they are environmentally friendly (which is why I spent more than usual). Would not buy again and only gave three stars because they are compostable.

Sturdy and Environmentally Friendly

These eco-friendly bags are sturdy and hold up well even when full. I also like the simple, recyclable packaging. They suit tall narrow bins best. I do wish they came in larger packs.
