Onya Compostable Bin Bags liners – certified compostable
No more plastic bin bags – these Onya bin liners are fully compostable.
These bags comes in 4 different sizes so you should be able to find one fitting your bin, so no excuse for not using something that are better for our environment in your bin.
The Onya bags are plant based and fully compostable and certified to Australian, European, USA and Japanese standards, which means the bags have been tested independently assessed to break down to virtually no levels detected in the soil and deemed “worm safe” with no micro plastic left behind.
The bags are made from 100% GMO free renewable plants and they are free from any plastic additives such as Polyethylene, Polystyrene, PVC and Polypropylene.
The bags/liners are certified compostable in industrial composting facilities with the bags breaking down withing app 12 weeks due to the industrial composting facilities operate hot composts of between 50c-60c.
In a general waste facilities the bags will break down over a longer period of time due to the lack of due of the necessary microbes found in these facilities it can take up to 6-12 months or more for the bags to break down to their natural cellulose beginnings.
Even at this stage the bags aren’t certified “home compostable” they can still be used in this environment, but like a general waste facility will just take longer to break down if not hot composted.
IMPORTANT NOTES FOR USE: it is recommended to keep them in a cool dark space until use and to use the minside ideally 3-6 months as otherwise they might start breaking down.
As the material is designed to break down easier than plastic it is recommended to treat them slightly different – this means you might have to change the bags more frequently than you are used to as if any moisture is added the composting process might begin and could lead to spills or splitting of the bag when emptying your bin on a weekly basis.
It is recommended to wrapping your wet waste in old newspaper which may help increase the life of your bag by preventing moisture from building up.
Please be aware that even the bin liners do have a litre capacity then due to a gusseted bottom of the bag they might loose a bit in height, so the following bags are recommended to the following size bins:
8L/2.1 Gallon Liner – 5-6 Litre/1,5 Gallon capacity bins – 35.5cm long x 41cm wide/14in long x 16in wide.
30L/7.9 Gallon Liner – 15-20 Litre/4-5 Gallon capacity bins – 57cm long x 51cm wide/22in long x 20in wide
