Biodegradable Bin Liners

If you’re looking for affordable, eco-friendly bin bags in Melbourne, Australia or worldwide, Because We Care can provide you with the best solution. Made from a plant-based, globally certified BF90 or KF90 series resin, our biodegradable bin liners contain waste and associated smells by lining rubbish bins with an approved compostable earth-friendly product.

Verified through rigorous consumer testing, our compostable garbage bags are fully biodegradable and highly suitable for collecting organic waste. Once in the compost, the biodegradable bin bags break down quickly into nutrient-rich soil. The print ink used on the outside of the biodegradable compost bags is a soy and water-based mixture, which is also 100% suitable for composting.

Available in any colour and various sizes, including 10-litre flat top shape and 30-litre singlet shape, our biodegradable rubbish bags are strong while in use and will fully decompose in 90 days in an industrial composting facility. These liners have a recommended shelf life of 9 to 15 months, dependent on the material used, meaning you can rely on our small and large bags to last as long as you need them.

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s the difference between biodegradable and compostable?

The words biodegradable and compostable are often used interchangeably but there are some differences between the two. Both will decompose in a composting environment, however compostable materials decompose at a faster rate than biodegradable products. Almost all compostable material is biodegradable, but not all biodegradable material is compostable. Read more here.

Can I throw compostable bags out with the trash?

Please don’t throw compostable items into the rubbish bin. Compostable plastic will not break down properly in a landfill. It requires air and moisture to properly decompose, so it’s up to you to ensure your compostable bag ends up in a composting environment.

What’s the difference between a home and industrial composting facility?

Because We Care products meet home and industrial composting standards, meaning they can be disposed of in either type of composting facility safely. The real difference is the time it takes to break down. An industrial facility will break down the material faster because there is more movement; the piles are consistently turned over and they reach higher temperatures.

How long does it take for biodegradable bags to decompose?

The speed that biodegradable bin bags decompose depends on the material makeup and the composting facility. As a general guide, all Because We Care products will completely compost in 90 to 180 days.
