Earth2Earth Compostable Sacks 26″ x 44″ – Clear Review
Looking for a bin bag for your organic waste? A place to store the food, grass cuttings, leaves and similar kinds of waste from the yard? The material of the bin bag that is used is key. While the waste is indeed biodegradable, how it is disposed of has an impact on the environment. Tossing those kitchen scraps and left-over foods into a plastic bag, which will then be taken to a landfill will have a detrimental effect. This is because the plastic takes centuries to get degraded, meaning that the organic waste will take longer to get released back into the environment. What’s more, with the growing size of the landfills, the oxygen supply to the microorganisms feeding on the organic matter is cut off. The decomposition will still take place, albeit anaerobically. This results in methane production, which is a potent greenhouse gas. You don’t want your waste disposal program to be a contributing factor to the increased global warming effects caused by methane. Using eco-friendly options like the Earth2Earth Compostable Sacks 26″ x 44″ – Clear will prevent things from taking this route.

- Environmental benefits
Composting is often referred to as “nature’s way of recycling”. Basically, the food waste and yard waste are broken down, becoming food for plants, continuing the cycle. Organic waste disposed of in the Earth2Earth Compostable Sacks 26″ x 44″ – Clear is taken to composting facilities, where conditions like moisture levels, heat and oxygen availability are controlled, to optimise the composting process. The by-products are waste, carbon dioxide, and biomass, which can be used in soil. Compost brings nutrients to the soil, nourishing the plants and enhancing their growth. The reliance on synthetic fertilizers is reduced, further cutting down on the greenhouse effect that is associated with their production. The compost also improves the soil structure, like making clay soils airier and more friable, helping them to drain better and making them easier to crumble and carry out digging in. For the sandy soils, the compost enhances their water retention capacity. With the compost soaking up the water and slowly releasing it to the plants, the amount of watering that is needed reduces, further conserving your resources. In fact, thick compost provides benefits similar to mulching, where it keeps the water from evaporating from the soil. Even the pH gets a boost, with the compost aiding in balancing it, making it more conducive for plants and organisms to thrive in. Better root structures, in turn, prevent erosion.
A core problem with waste management is the numerous landfills that keep popping up around the planet, and the high rate with which they grow. With over 25% of the waste that ends up in the landfills being organic matter- turning to the composting process will result in a drastic reduction in the speed at which landfills are building up. This is key in cutting down the amount of methane that is being produced. What’s more, local governments will get to save on the costs incurred in managing huge landfills, with the funds being directed to more useful ventures. It also aids in combating the plastic menace, where the bags are one of the most notorious causes of pollution. Waste disposal with products like the Earth2Earth Compostable Sacks 26″ x 44″ – Clear enables home and business owners to ensure that the organic material that is generated from their premises gets directed to composting facilities, instead of adding to the growing amount in landfills that is already a problem.
