A pack of biodegradable trash bags for one less thing in your home that’ll sit for years in the landfill. These heavy-duty bags can withstand all the sharp edges that get thrown away in the kitchen just as well as your typical garbage bags but will break down quicker than their counterparts. Biode-GREAT-able if you ask me!
