Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 Convenient Compost Bags This product is easy to use. I don't feel bad lining the pail with these bags. Great choice for composters! Once I run out of my doggie bags I plan on trying that product as well. July 5, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by great idea to encourage composting I have used both the compost bags and the doggie bags. The doggie bags are sturdy and work well, although I agree with others that one must be careful in separating. The compost ones are thin and I have to remind myself to be gentle in placing items that are sharp so they don't break the bag and to not overfill as they do break with too much weight. I often put my bags in frig or freezer to diminish smell and not let things get too mushy which can lead to breakage. April 13, 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by Very Finicky These bags need CAREFUL handling; you cannot just rip them off the roll, because the material is so light-weight that they tear very easily. I use them as a liner for my compost pail, and they work ok, but one has to be really, really gentle in handling them...which of course one is usually "not" when handling garbage and compostable waste. I would love to see a strong paper-based bag, perhaps with some cornstarch in it to give it some liquid-proof capabilities, but with the strength of paper. These work but be very careful so you don't tear them! November 14, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Handy clean up We are using these bags to clean up our cat box. They are a nice size for daily clean up of our cat box. September 3, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product! Been buying large quantities of them for several years now. I fill a hanger outside of my house with them almost daily so that dog walkers can remember to pick up after their dogs and do it with an Earth-friendly product. Very handy! May 3, 2011

Answer: 
It just depends on how much you are trying to put into the bags. It would probably be fine for daily clean up but not for when you have to completely change out the box. The dimensions for the bags are:

11½"L x 7 5/8"W

Answer: 
No because once you add compost to the bag it will become to short for the bucket.

Answer: 
They aren't really big enough to hold the contents of the composting crock. You would want to use 14-9332 The Bio Bag kitchen compost liner.

We currently have a doggie dooley (large size) and use it for two large breed dogs with the doggie dooley additive. We've read that you can bury or compost these bags, however we don't have a large enough property for a compost and live in an urban area where we must be very careful not to cause rodent, insect or odor problems for the neighbors. If we were to use these bags while walking the dogs and put them into the doggie dooley septic system, would they biodegrade quickly enough to not cause problems with the septic (like overflowing)? Thanks for your help.

Answer: 
The rate at which the bags biodegrade depends on factors such as temperature and moisture. These would not be ideal for use with the Doggie Dooley, because they will not break down quickly.
