As a busy mom of four kids, I find it near impossible to get away from plastic bags. They’re just so convenient! So rather than steering away from bags altogether, I wanted to try out compostable sandwich baggies instead.
Compostable sandwich baggies are just what they sound like — sandwich bags that easily break down/compost when they’re in a landfill. They’re a much more eco-friendly product than regular plastic bags, but perform a little different: Some of them are less stretchy, less transparent, and a little more difficult to open.
So which compostable sandwich bags really work? And are they worth the price?
I decided to find out by putting six compostable sandwich bag brands to the test!
Check out the results below to find out which brand won.
Compostable sandwich bags come in a wide variety of materials, styles, and price points. So I I wanted to make this a fair test! Here’s how I went about it:
Curious to know which brand one?
Matter compostable bags won first place! These bags are the most affordable, pretty easy to open and close, and more transparent than most compostable bags. You can find them at Target.
For Good compostable bags were a close runner-up. I also liked these bags a lot and think they are worth the price. You can find these bags at Walmart.
