Primode 100% Compostable Bags : Perfect size for my 13 gallon compost bin

Have been using these for about two weeks, and they appear to be stronger than the competition. They do not break or tear easily when trash/compost is added to the bucket, and they seem to not dissolve when wet. So far i am very pleased with the product, waiting to see how well they survive on the shelf, since some of these kinds of products break down over time.

Item arrived on time and in good condition. These environmentally friendly trash bags work great for us. They are more sturdy than others we’ve tried.

Great bags but they need the bpi certified label. Otherwise commercial composting haulers won’t accept.

Excellent, holds a lot of trash, just don’t over stuff. Everyone should use these as an alternate to regular plastic.

  • Highly recommend these kitchen-waste bags over pure plastic bags
  • Strong and a large size.
  • Perfect size for my 13 gallon compost bin

Perfect size for my 13 gallon compost bin. Also bought compost bin filters which are awesome. Rarely do i write reviews, however, this product is definitely a keeper.

They get the job done but still need to double bag to prevent leaks.

Great bags and love that they’re compostable. Also bought them at a great price.

Totally biodegradable and very useful.

Thickness was good and they hold up to food scraps. Too small at top for city receptacle. Need bigger and garbage guys prefer a green color to know they are compostable.

My order arrived promptly, and these tall kitchen bags fit well in my trash container under the sink, with enough extra to fold over the edge at the top. They are sturdy enough to hold the trash without tearing, and yet compostable–so they won’t end up floating in the ocean or sitting in a landfill forever. The price was very reasonable, and well worth protecting my planet and yours. I plan to discontinue using 30-gallon bags, and just use these. I cut a slot in the box, so i can dispense from the roll easily.

Best price per unit for a garbage bag. Very sturdy, haven’t had a leak yet.

This is the next generation of biodegradable kitchen garbage bags. There are bags enough to last a year when the household is conscientious about reducing the purchase of excess packaging and general household waste. They are more delicate than the typical grocery store purchased brands; after all, they are supposed to breakdown eventually.

I’ve been looking for a good non-plastic trash bag and i found it with primode. This product helps me to do my part to reduce plastic waste. It works great and it is well priced.

Happy to find a compostable trash bag for our kitchen waste.

We love the bags because they are compostable. They are more fragile than non-compostable ones, but i feel great using them for the earth.

Primode 100% Compostable Bags 3 Gallon Food Scraps Yard Waste Bags – I like these bags

We live in san francisco and the bags that the stores sell are so flimsy and disintegrate quickly. These still meet the criteria for the city and are amazing.

With these i don’t have to double bag. I use less of these bags than the other ones i’ve tried.

I recently bought this item and so far the bags seem to be much stronger than the ones i previously used. I have nothing to complain about. Here are the specifications for the Primode 100% Compostable Bags 3 Gallon Food Scraps Yard Waste Bags:

  • THREE GALLON SIZE: Each of our compost bags has a capacity of 3 gallons, Measures 16.3 x 16.5 inch Extra Thick 0.71 Mil pack of 100

  • STRONG & DURABLE: The compost trash bags are much tougher than others which tear and fray easily.
  • EASY TO USE: The composting bags are easy to use and just the right size, perfect for compost pails on the counter top or small kitchen trash cans

They are a biodegradable plastic, just the right size, and work well in my garbage collection system.

Good bags but could do with some compostable printing on them to keep the compost lady at the farmers market happy when i drop them in her citywide compost bin.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • These are wonderful.
  • These bags are considerably tough
  • These bags work excellently with my new waste bucket. I saved 9

Thin bags which i suspect is necessary for biodegradable.

I use these for cleaning out the litter box, and they work perfectly. I’ve never had one too on me, and that was my main concern.

These bags are a lot sturdier than previous ones we had gotten. They hold a fair amount and don’t shred.

These bags are of good quality and are priced well. I find they sometimes tear after a couple days where my compost container lid rests, and i have not had this problem with other products.

These bags work excellently with my new waste bucket. 00, instead of buying the bags that were sold by the company i purchased by new inside cupboard waste bucket system. The size is perfect and i love that i can toss the bag with all it’s contents into my yard waste bin for my garbage company to take away.

I have tried three brands of compost bags and this is the best one that does not break when there’s a lot of food and even some liquid in it.

Bought to replace plastic grocery bags used for kitchen scraps. Like the fact that they are compostable.

Contents go through to the container. I have to double and in some cases triple the bags.

They’re great and eco friendly.

I enjoy using these compostable bags to line my compost container. I used to use the name brand ones but after the moisture got to them they just fell apart. I’m happy i found the primode ones are a lot tougher and make composting much more affordable.

These bags hold up pretty well. I have filled them up sometimes too much and they never leaked. Since i don’t have to changethe bags that often they are actually cost effective. Ive used other compost bags that leaked with less waste in them. Product arrived as promised.

Right-sized, uncomplicated (no odd finicky unfolding like my previous compost bags), strong enough.

They fit our 3-gallon compost bin perfectly and hold up very well.

Good price, strong, and easy to use.

Liked the 3 gallon promise bag.

Can’t tell how compostable they are, but they appear to work as advertised.

Primode 100% Compostable Bags : Great size for bigger bins

I was skeptical about the load of kitty litter i put in the first one. So i carried it from the top and bottom of the bag. But i didn’t need to worry at all.They are stretchy and accommodated the load just fine. I like the idea of less plastic in our environment, but i still need a bag to use for the cat box. I also plan on using them to collect and transport the compostables from my kitchen. I will have to see if i can use the in the composter.

These bags are just the perfect size for me &, they are sturdy. I also like the fact that they aren’t clear but are a light green color. My only problem occurred when i tried to remove the tape, to start the roll. The tape didn’t come off clearly & left a small hole in the first bag: fortunately, this was higher up on the side of the bag & not on the bottom. I certainly plan on buying these again.

Nice, thick compostable bags. It’s more expensive than thinner ones, but i think i will stick with it.

These are working well for us. My pail is 5 gallons these are a little too big, but that helps me wrap up the bag.

The bags are great, this is my second box of 100. They’re the perfect size for a tall kitchen waste bin. My order arrived promptly — even coming to canada from the states, which is special.

Primode 100% Compostable Bags, 6 Gallon Food Scraps Yard Waste Bags, Extra Thick 0.87 Mil. ASTMD6400 Biodegradable Compost Bags Small Kitchen Trash Bags, Certified By BPI And VINCETTE, (100) : These compost bags are of good quality. Have recommended to my neighbors for nyc sanitation compost collecting. No odors noticed when bags are sealed.

What i don’t like is that these are made in china. Also that the box does not tell you what they are made from or why they are compostable. ???only industrial compostable it says on the package. But didn’t highlight fact before we purchased them or the reasons why. I would buy usa next time because it doesn’t seem right to waste the fuel and not promote usa goods if we ship this over from so far away, fuel use, costs etc. They are soft and we bought & use them as regular waste paper basket liners to help eliminate plastic use.

It’s so nice to have an option to not using regular plastic and to satisfy my environmental concerns.

I use these bags to put my compostable dog poo bags in. . Inside a 5 gallon bucket with lid keeps the smell down. So far they have held up and work well.

These are great for my garbage cans in the bedrooms and bathroom. It makes me happy using these instead of the plastic bags from the grocery store.

I really like the thickness of these bags for my compost can. Strong, no leaking, no breaking. I will be ordering larger ones for my larger trash can as well.

Perfectly fit my small trashcan. Not as tough as regular plastic but that is expected by the nature of this product.

Good product and did exactly what it said it would do.

Product exceeded my expectations.

Perfect use for our 20l / 5. 3 gallon simple human trash can that we wanted to use exclusively for food waste.

Excellent product that i use for garbage bags in the hope to help saving our environment. Also for normal compostable recycling of fresh products.

Break down quick, we like that.

Thicker than the other bags i’ve used in the past.

In the stores you can get only 3 gallon food scrap bags, however, i like having a bigger bin, so it’s a perfect fit. And they are also durable, so a bigger amount of waste is not a problem.

Very useful, please buy this, like it lasts very long and it’s very strong.

Delivered very fast quality product on time and had a very good price will be back highly recommend thank you.

Living in san francusco, recycling is very important. Because these bags are bio – degradable, they are perfect for handling compost as well as other recyclable items. I received them within just a couple of days , and the price was the best i found.

Primode 100% Compostable Bags : Strong and stretchy

These are strong, stretchy biodegradable bags that do the job. Prior brand we used had a problem with tearing. Our city added collection of food scraps recently so we use 3-5 of these per week.

Great bags, very high quality. This is something you really don’t want to fail and these fell very strong and give no impression that they might rip or leak.

The product arrived promptly in great condition. The bags are perfect for the little garbage bins we leave in the bathrooms. They are thick enough that they don’t rip too easily. I was happy to order compostable bags to eliminate some of our waste.The container boxes are easy to tuck in the cabinet out of the way.

Thicker than most compostable bags so less likely to tear.

  • Bags Work Great!
  • These work fine for me
  • Securely fits the rim of a 3.5 gallon (small) trash can

I just started putting food leftovers-food covered paper in the compost barrel. Always just put them in the regular trash. Guilt finally won out and i ordered the green barrel from the trash company. I live in a condo so have little outside leaves, etc. I was afraid the food scraps would smell by the end of the week and it’d be very messy. These bags have worked perfectly. They’re the right size to fit in a covered small bucket under my sink. Surprisingly, there is no smell. The bags hold quite a lot and still have enough at the top to fold over or twist before depositing in the barrel.

These bags work well in my little kitchen garbage can, not my compost can, my garbage can. I take the garbage out every other day – i don’t make a lot of garbage. I don’t know anything about how they compost, however.

I have a little compost container in the sink and empty it into these bags right before tossing them into the compost bin outside. It feels really flimsy, like it’ll break at any second, but (crossing fingers) bags have not broken yet during transport. Easy to dispense and tear off.

I really like these bags: first of all, the prize is excellent. You can’t find anything like it at the local supermarkets. The bags are very strong of very good quality and were delivered on time.

Great for composting, we fill a bag after dinner and/or lunch and can place in the outside bin immediately. Great size so we don’t have to keep rotting items inside.

They are exactly what i expected. I live in the country, so i toss biodegradable waste in the fence line, or i take it to the farm so it goes out in the manure spreader. I wanted a bag that would hold my garbage until i can dispose of it properly. Your compostable bags are not as flimsy as some i bought in the past.

A little more comfortable to use than the 2. 5 gallon, this is similar in size to the old plastic grocery bag. Very strong, and very inexpensive- i use them for scooping cat litter, lunch bags, whatever- very superior.

Really nice bags – sturdier than other similar bags i’ve bought in the past and better price too. They also do not seem to have the issue of sticking together as some other bags i’ve tried before have done.

People have complained that the bags fall apart from moisture. Correct that problem by throwing a paper towel or napkin in the bottom and adding another occasionally.

Good so far, nyc just recently handed out brown bins for food scraps and all. Just have issues with a bit of leaking and smells from the mixed up food. Been using soiled paper towels to help absorb some moisture. A good buy plus won’t run out anytime soon.

Primode 3 gallon bags fit perfectly in the “simple human” 10l step can which we had been using with grocery bags with handles. Bags are big enough to flap over the edge of the removable inner bucket so they don’t slip down. So far the bags have held up even with wet cooking and table scraps and coffee grounds. They do feel wet on the outside when we remove them (every 3-4 days), but that’s just from condensation. We continue to use a plastic bag as a can liner, just in case, but haven’t had to remove it, yet. Our nyc apartment building is now composting, so we have to take the bag on a little journey in the elevator down to the ground floor and through the service area to the compost bins, but so far we’ve made it bag intact. Box is as compact as can be expected, and bags pull out without incident.

These bags are just as advertised. The thickness works well and they are easy to open.

Well, i don’t really know what to say about compost bags, but the supplier asked me very nicely to review them, so here goes. The box has a nice easy access opening. The bags seem to be appropriately strong and not leaky (compostable bags don’t seem entirely waterproof, unlike the nasty non-compostable bags). So i will order these again & i recommend them.

I use them for a spring loaded pooper scooper, fits around it perfectly.

I love this size of bag for my compost. I juice a lot and the weight of the compost is heavy. This size allows me to have a good enough amount of space to tie off. I use with a breville juice as well as my compost container in the kitchen. Will add to my favorites list.

Inexpensive, but they allow me to carry rotting food leftovers down to the building’s compost bin without making a mess along the way. At the bin, this bag goes in along with the outer paper bag i use — no muss no fuss.

Fit perfectly in my container. Slightly thicker then any other compost bags i’ve found, and it makes a difference. Far fewer burst or torn bags. Still happens, just less frequent.

The bags arrived on time and as ordered. They were ordered specifically because they are compostable – for my small waste baskets in the house. I am pleased to say they are very strong, as well as quite expandable. They are the perfect size and strength for these trash buckets, and the quality is much better than the quality of the bags that i used to use. I love them and highly recommend them.

Primode 100% Compostable Bags 2 – Impressive product

Love that they are compostable. I hate thinking about trash bags just polluting everything, so nice to have an option of something that will decompose. Be sure when you buy compostable bags that the box says ‘certified compostable’. Some bags advertise themselves as natural, but that doesn’t mean they will compost.

Sturdy bags and still home compostable, i have looking for small sturdy compost bags and we found them on amazon good priced. These bags are good for earth and the planet, practically for kitchen compost bins and home composting. Thanks amazon for helping use.

We go through about a bag every 4 days, but sometimes i’m on the road and my wife forgets to take the compost out and the bag is still a bag after 8 days. They don’t hold in all the liquid but i’m just happy not to have the veg bits fall out on my way to the compost pile. They breakdown great in the compost, though since i use the biodegradable coffee pods, i toss on some compost booster once a month. Here are the specifications for the Primode 100% Compostable Bags 2:

  • THREE GALLON SIZE: Each of our compost bags has a capacity of 2.6 gallons!
  • 100% COMPOSTABLE: The food waste bags are fully compostable.
  • BPI-CERTIFIED: Our compostable bags meet BPI requirements for safety standards.
  • STRONG & DURABLE: The compost trash bags are much tougher than others which tear and fray easily.
  • EASY TO USE: The composting bags are easy to use and just the right size,

Generous size, strong and they don’t add to the plastics in our environment. We are minimizing the use of non-recyclable plastics in our lives, so these are ideal. We live in a condo where we aren’t able to compost, but it’s a comfort to know that they are made of plants and vegetables that will decompose in the garbage processing.

I don’t use these for the intended purpose. My apartment complex requires all cat litter to be individually bagged and disposed of. While it specifies plastic bags, i can’t in good conscience use that much plastic. Enter primode compostable bags. Strong enough to hold the litter and even stack up for a few days in the waste bin. They end up in the landfill, but since they decompose i don’t feel guilty.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • Perfect for backyard composting
  • BPI certified compost bags
  • Great answer to my municipalities composting requirements

Our municipality has just approved the use of these compostable bags, and it is so nice to not have to deal with wiping goop out of the compost bin. Seems like they hold up fine for the few days each of them spends in the kitchen, though a couple of them have leaked if there’s a lot of liquid.

They are strong enough to hold an entire compost pail and they are big enough to yank them out without having to push all the food waste down to get a hold of the bag. I bought some compost bags from target (you really can’t find them anywhere) and they tore immediately after opening the box.There is no comparison to the ones i got on amazon. You won’t be disappointed.

I just ordered my second box of 100 primode compostable bags. I can use them in my countertop compost container. When it’s full, i just knot the top and drop it in my outdoor compost cart for pickup. They are approved by the city and the bags help control the smell. I’m sure i will continue to use them.

Nice bag, fits my small stainless compost bucket well. Had some seepage of liquid from coffee grounds, but have had that with other brands also. Not sure how well they will compost in my compost pile since i’m just a few weeks in, but bag seems thinner than the last i used so i am hopeful. The price per bad was very good on this product. Will buy them again when i run out.

They don’t tear easily, which is a bonus. It helps because our compost pile is in the back of our property so my son has to carry it out.

Ok, but they seem to leak a bit with wet garbage in them (i use them to dispose of wet tea bags at work and it always seems that the bags are damp on the outside when i go to change them).

These bags are just big enough and just small enough for a counter-top compost collection bin. I use the oxo compost bin and these bags are definitely a little bit for it but that means when the bin is very full, i still have room to tie it up so i’m okay with them being slightly larger than the container they line.

I filled up my first one over the course of about a week or two and it held up well even though it was really full. I’m now on my second and haven’t had an issue. Update: i’ve been using these for a few months and am consistently surprised by how well they hold up. I don’t put anything too liquid in them, but i stuff each one to the point they won’t close and they haven’t stretched or broken yet. Very impressed and will buy again.

Wonderful, compostable waste bags. I highly recommend over ‘traditional’ non-degradable, chemical-ridden plastic garbage bags. 6 gallon bags fit perfectly for the trashcan i have (medium-sized, not a big tall can). There may also be other sizes available to fit different can sizes. These work for bathroom or kitchen trash. I urge you to choose biodegradable and post-consumer recycled products. We have the technology to reduce our consumption and gradual destruction of the earth. Yes to compostable trash bags.

I bought these to ‘blend in’ to our white ceramic countertop compost canister. I really bought these to keep me from having to wash the compost canister out every time we empty it (like every day – we drink a lot of coffee and eat a lot of fruits and veg) because it’s heavy and awkward to hand wash. Well, these bags look good and are sturdy enough to stuff full and carry across the yard, but they aren’t exactly water tight. There is always some fluid on the sides or bottom of our ceramic canister. I guess part of being biodegradable is that they are porous?. I just line the bottom of the bin with paper towels and toss them each time. Not ideal, but it’s better than not using the liners at all.

Our condominium start recently with food composting program for food waste they required to use only certified biodegradable collection bags, these bags are bpi certified and thick bags, it keeps our bins dry and free from odors.

The piece of mind these bags give me is priceless. I stopped using regular bags on my trash can in the kitchen but unfortunately by just emptying the contents in the main trash can it started getting very smelly and attracting a lot of flies. Now those problems are gone and i don’t have to worry about hurting the environment. This doesn’t have anything to do with how good the product is but i have to say and i absolutely love how the bags feel to the touch.

It’s nice that it is compostable. But, the bag can not hold a lot of items. Though stretchable, it breaks easily. Also, like other reviewers mentioned, liquid seeps through. So, i had to pad the bottom of the container with sheets of paper towels before i line the container with the bag.

Switched to these recently from biobag (3 ga) and honestly can’t tell the difference. This is a good thing as the pricing on the primode was much better (less than half on a per unit basis). I’m happy with the durability (we typically switch out bags 2-3x weekly) and the size.

Like reviewers have remarked on all compostable bags, they tear easily. But having been warned, i am happy with these bags. 5 gallon kitchen scraps bin with extra room to be tied off.

These bags are environment friendly, they are perfect for backyard composting and they actuality have the vinccette certificate and approvalwe had great experience using these bags they do not leak, strong bags, perfect size for our countertop bucket, and 100% compostable.
