Pros: Very sturdy; compostable!

These bags are so great.  I was worried that they'd be not too sturdy.  But they're fantastic.  They hold their contents well, and they actually feel fantastic to the touch -- not as "rough" as traditional plastic bags (try one -- you'll see what I mean).  Moreover, it frees you from the guilt of using traditional plastic when you're taking out the garbage.  Highly recommended. Also, just found out:  Residents of San Francisco (city and county) can purchase BioBags at any Albertson’s, Cala/Bell’s, Cole Hardware, Rainbow Market, Real Foods, Whole Foods, or Walgreen’s Drug stores.  Otherwise, can get them online!

Pros: compostable, water tight

Cons: very expensive, wish there was a 5 gallon size

This product is definitely a breakthrough: a completely compostable plastic bag that can handle wet trash and animal poop. They are easy to handle and they don't smell toxic or anything. Being able to use a plastic liner in our compost bin really helps us keep it clean. In the past we've used paper bags, which are no good because they soak through. Or we've simply placed our food scraps directly into the plastic bin, which is nasty because you need to scrub out the slimy bin each time you empty it. Taking the compost out used to be a really disgusting task. And you know the story: if you hate doing it, sooner or later you'll probably quit. So here's where the bio bags come in. They seem...

Pros: Strong, green

These are a very nice option to plastic bags.  I wish they sold the ones with hadles @ the store too.  I just got the black bags for pets; nice size and strong.
