100% Compostable Trash Bin Liners: Good for the Earth and Your Kitchen

Made of 100% natural cornstarch, Brabantia’s new bin liners are made to fit our stable of waste cans and recycling bins. Because they are made of completely natural materials, they will break down into smaller, natural components in a compost pile, making them one of the most environmentally friendly bags on the market – and, they come wrapped in packaging that is also 100% compostable. The new bin liners are simple to use – just match the letter code and color on the outside of the bag with the letter and color inside your Brabantia bin to find the perfect size. Boost your green profile by using these bags that are good for your kitchen and for the planet. Available in two sizes: 10 and 18 litre.

Price: $9.00 for a bag of 20.

Choose one or all of four different designs: iron (blue), coffee mug (black), tea pot (red) and soup tureen (white).
