Company Summary

Our 100% compostable bags are made from corn based materials that are re-usable, safe, and naturally decompose into a nitrogen rich soil amendment. Better Bags can be used at groceries, retail stores, hospitals, restaurants just to name a few markets. Better Bag will serve as a shopping bag then used to collect organic waste, and be finally used to transport that organic waste to a compost drop-off point.
