Are compostable bags ok?

It depends on the type. Oxydegradable bags are just plastic bags that disintegrate into microplastics when they come into contact with air and sunlight and are therefore harmful to the environment. Compostable bags for food caddies might sound good, but the digester plants can’t break them down so they’re pulled out and incinerated.

It’s cheaper and easier to line your food bin with leftover newspaper.
