Product review: Ucan Compostable Trash Bags


I have gone back and forth ... trash bag or no trash bag? If we're trying to eliminate plastic from our weekly trash, then maybe not using a trash bag is a good idea? When we ran out of trash bags, I decided to give no bag a try. We put all of our leftover food scraps in our worm bin composter and our trash consumption is down. I tried to suck it up but it just wasn't working for me and was too messy. So I really needed a liner and compostable was going to be the only way to go.

Enter my monthly Ecocentric Mom Box (more on that soon). It's a box of goodies I subscribe to that I get each month featuring some amazing green and eco-friendly products. Just so happens that UCan had samples of their compostable 13 gallon trash bags in the box that month when I ran out of my regular trash bags. I was instantly in love! So much in love, I ordered 4 boxes from them with the discount code provided in my box.

Here's the scoop:
  • Ucan sells 13 gallon, 3 gallon and sandwich compostable bags
  • Their made of strong and durable compostable materials
  • They provide the convenience of traditional plastic 13 gallon garbage bags without the negative environmental impact.
  • The bags won't deteriorate until bags reach a commercial composting facility.
  • The bags simplify food waste collection in a cleaner, more user-friendly way.
  • They're BPI and ATSM 6400 certified.

Since I purchased this product on my own, I emailed UCan and they offered to give my readers 25% off their purchase of UCan products! Visit their site and use code greenmom!

I will say, it does take some time to get used to not having a drawstring but it's worth it for the environment, right?

Question: Do you use trash bags or do you go bagless?

This product was in was part of my Ecocentric Mom Box that I pay for each month. I purchased this product with my own hard earned cash. Opinions are my own!

  1. How is it holding up? I've struggled with biodegradable kitchen trash bags because so many of them are so thin they tear easity. The one brand I loved apparently went out of business.

  2. No problems or tears at all. I used BioBag and was not impressed with them.
