Earth Rated® compostable bags meet the ASTM D6400 guidelines, are BPI-approved and are an excellent alternative to the green-colored bags. These vegetable-based unscented bags could be disposed of in a municipal compost environment, where pet waste is accepted. They are bigger, thicker, tougher and totally leak-proof! This refill pack includes 4 rolls of 15 unscented bags that fit into most standard-sized leash dispensers. Earth Rated products are the industry leader in terms of quality and most of all, affordability. At Earth Rated®, we don't leave out the littlest of details - even our rolls’ cores and packaging are made from recycled content!
Basically they're perfect, they're a much thinner/lighter material which makes them a loooot easier to open than the regular thick plastic ones.
Only thing is the plastic ones can survive the wash, these can't. Which is a bummer because my favorite thing is to forget them in my pockets. They basically melt together and make it literally impossible to open/use. The green versions can survive the wash though!!
That being said, handling them while its pouring rain is probably a bad call, since handling with wet hands can prove a bit tricky as well sometimes.
