Love using these binbags, they are easy to tie if they are not over-filled. They do however tear more easily if putting in too much liquid or sharp objects.

Well made

The bags are tricky to open and are atypical in design - they have 4 'handles' that you tie up when full. The bags are silky which means they slide down in your bin so require securing. If you produce a lot of waste, or throw away heavy or sharp objects, these bags will not be strong enough. If you want to use them for a small bathroom bin, these will work fine.

I use them in a small bin as I don't want to accumulate much food waste and it works perfectly. Doesn't break when I take it out and holds everything nicely. I'm quite happy

They are hard to tear off and I have yet to keep the handles in tack, but practice makes perfect. They are stronger than they look, though, and can hold a fair amount of weight. Less plastic, less guilt, and more hope for a greener future. I don't think it's a perfect product but it's a good start.

A strong bag. Use it for cat litter and it works well. They are a bit fiddly to get off the roll and open without breaking the handles, but overall, I'm impressed.
18/06/2019, By Yvette
Seriously? These bags are smaller than a small 'plastic-size' carrybag - it will only work in a very small bathroom bin. I am not sure how they measure 43 and 39 cm? Furthermore the perforation is very badly done and even if you try to open them very carefully the bag tears. I am very disappointed.
18/04/2019, By Faeron
The bag handles tear as I try to gently release a bag from the roll, which is a pain. And I worry that the bag will split when it's full. But I still use them for all my biodegradable waste.

Nice alternative to plastic bags, however it must be noted that these Food Waste Bags are not certified for home composting, so they will not break down in a home compost.
12/02/2019, By El3ds
Great product the only thing I would change is the bags don't have loops like other bags.
05/02/2019, By Lorraine
Super chuffed with this product. It works perfectly and leaves me with a clear conscious that I am not using plastic bags for my scraps.Hubby is super stoked as well. A definite monthly purchase.

Not had a chance to see how it breaks down in the compost heap, but keen to try

I love the fact that my kitchen scraps can be connected in a compostable bag until I put it in my worm farm
