Certified Compostable Tall Kitchen Bags by If You Care

If You Care - Certified Compostable Tall Kitchen Bags - 12 Bags

If You Care Certified Compostable Tall Kitchen Bags are made from potato starch from non-GMO starch potatoes blended with a certified, fully compostable polymer. No plasticizers are added.

What Makes Potato Starch Strong?
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 Certified Compostable Bags stronger than bags made from corn starch.

Any Other Reasons for Potato Starch?
The potato starch used to make If You Care Certified Compostable 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. To produce the same amount of starch from these potatoes as from corn requires 40% less land. These potatoes require no irrigation, and need only normal rainfall. Corn requires much more water.

Why Use If You Care Certified Compostable Bags?
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 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 Certified Compostable Bags are made from 100% GMO free potato starch and a fully compostable polymer. These bags are completely polyethylene free and plasticizer free.

  • Potato starch from non-GMO “starch potatoes” – grown for starch, not for food
  • Blended with certified fully compostable polymer
  • No plasticizers. Plasticizers migrate, which deteriorates mechanical properties of bags. We don’t use them.
  • Package from 100% recycled board processed chlorine-free (PCF)
  • No polyethylene. 100% certified compostable
  • Potato starch from potatoes grown for starch only – no diversion from food supply
  • Potato starch uses less water than starch from corn. No irrigation necessary, only natural rainfall.
  • 40% less land is used to produce same quantity of starch from potatoes as from corn
  • Use for compostable waste
  • Bags are certified compostable by the Biodegradable Products Institute (BPI)
  • Bags along with waste can be composted in municipal or commercial compost facilities
  • Cardboard box should be recycled

Unbleached Totally Chlorine-Free (TCF) Paper
Wood pulp, in its natural state is brown or beige. Papers made from such pulp - for example brown paper bags, and most cardboard boxes - are also brown. For years, most paper was subjected to a bleaching process to make it white, using elemental chlorine (Cl), usually in the form of chlorine gas, with horrible environmental consequences.

Today, this process is no longer used in most of Europe. Much of the North American pulp and paper industry no longer uses elemental chlorine (Cl), but there remain a number of paper mills in North America which continue to do so, despite the documented environmental damage that this process engenders. Today, the most common form of bleaching paper is no longer with the use of elemental chlorine (Cl), but instead with the use of chlorine derivatives, principally chlorine dioxide (ClO2). Paper bleached with chlorine dioxide is often referred to as "elementally chlorine-free" (ECF). Though bleaching with chlorine dioxide (ClO2) is far preferable to bleaching with elemental chlorine, it is still environmentally harmful, because chlorine derivatives still produce toxic chlorinated organic compounds, such as chloroform, a known carcinogen.

Totally chlorine-free (TCF) paper is paper which is either unbleached, or bleached using no chlorine or chlorine derivatives. Bleached papers which are totally chlorine-free (TCF) have been bleached with oxygen, ozone and/or hydrogen peroxide. These bleaching methods have none of the environmental impacts of chlorine chemistry.

About If you Care
If You Care was conceived of as a brand of environmentally friendly kitchen and household products. The first If You Care products were unbleached coffee filters, and they were launched in 1990. These were the first unbleached coffee filters in the U.S. Parchment Baking Paper and Baking Cups soon followed. All of the paper products were unbleached and totally chlorine-free.

In 2004, the very first Aluminum Foil made from 100% recycled aluminum was launched. This product featured a 95% energy savings compared to conventional aluminum foil. Heavy Duty Aluminum Foil for grilling and barbecuing, also from 100% recycled aluminum, was introduced in 2007. That same year, waxed paper, from unbleached paper coated with soybean wax was launched. In 2009, two new products are being launched in the fourth quarter - 100% carbon neutral fire starters, made from FSC certified wood and vegetable oil, and sandwich and snack bags made from unbleached greaseproof paper. Many new products in a wide variety of categories are being planned and developed in the coming years. If You Care kitchen and household products are carefully and deliberately crafted to have the least environmental impact and the lightest carbon footprint possible, while at the same time, delivering to the consumer, the highest quality and most effective results.

Less Waste
If You Care products are produced with a view to reducing the amount of waste in their waste streams. If possible, nothing should remain after the product has been used and properly disposed of. The packaging of every product is made from unbleached and whenever possible, recycled cardboard or paper which should be recycled again. The coffee filters, parchment paper, baking cups, waxed paper and sandwich bags are 100% biodegradable and should be composted. The aluminum foil is made from recycled aluminum and can be recycled again.

Suggested Use
Use to put trash in.
