Look At The Earth2Earth 140L Compostable Bin Liners

How do you dispose of the organic waste that is generated in your establishment? This kind of waste, from the kitchen, office, all through to the yard and garden waste- can be a critical asset to the environment, when disposed of correctly. That’s where composting comes in. Through this process, the nutrient cycle is maintained, where the decaying organic matter provides nourishment for new plants to flourish. Using the Earth2Earth 140L Compostable Bin Liners enables you to take part in this cycle, putting in place environmentally sustainable practices in your premises. 

The Problem Of Organic Waste In Landfills

While it’s true that organic waste can compost, it needs the right conditions of oxygen, heat and humidity. These are constantly managed in the composting plants. However, at landfills, these conditions are not provided. The main problem is the lack of sufficient oxygen for the microorganisms to use for the decomposition. This is because the waste tends to end up being buried and compacted under mountains of more waste. The biodegradation will still occur, though through an anaerobic process, which is where the threat to the environment increases. Whenever the anaerobic decomposition occurs, methane gas is produced. This is a greenhouse gas, that has a great impact than carbon dioxide- in fact, going by the EPA, it is 25 times more potent. When the organic waste ends up in landfills, it actually contributes to global warming at a greater scale. This is certainly not something you want riding on your conscience. 

Ensuring that the organic waste actually gets to the composting plants, disposing it of in bags such as the Earth2Earth 140L Compostable Bin Liners, will enable you to reduce your carbon footprint. 

Value Of The Composting Process

It enables valuable nutrients to be reverted back to the soil, improving its health and structure.  This is looking at the aggregates of the soil particles with the crumbly texture soil that is ideal for organisms like earthworms, drainage, and where tender young roots get to penetrate the soil more easily. In fact, when compost is added to overly sandy or heavily clayed soils, it promotes a healthier substrate, while still allowing air to circulate. The humus itself encourages native plant growth by nourishing them, which has a net positive impact on the ecosystem. With a healthy and nutrient-rich soil, the need for inorganic pesticides and fertilizers is reduced. Aspects such as the water retention capacity of the soil are enhanced. Runoff is also decreased, since the compost also encourages the growth of healthy root systems.

After establishing the importance of using compostable trash bags, the next step is selecting the right product for your needs. There are various factors to consider. For starters, has the product been certified to be compostable by independent assessment bodies? This is not just by relying on what the company says on its advertisement banners- but rather ensuring that the product actually comes with the certification itself, which has been awarded by internationally recognized certification organisations, with approved and accredited laboratories. These are the likes of the TÜV-Austria OK-compost certificate, issued by the Austrian TÜV (formerly called Vincotte), and the DIN geprueft compostable certificate which is issued by the German DIN Certco where the products are tested on whether they have met the EN 13432 standard.

Size also factors in. After all, you want trash bags whose functionality is suited to your establishment’s waste management needs. It should also be compatible with the bin itself, that way it’s not too small such that it is rendered impractical, or too large that there are sections hanging too far out of the bin and being an inconvenience.
