Has anyone else tried using those compostable Sunchips bags? They're really noisy, but it's supposed to be because they're made to be composted. When I first saw them I had just gotten a compost bin. We got some (we do love Sunchips anyway) and put the bag in the bin when we were finished. That was sometime in the middle of May. I was just out stirring up my bin and guess what I found. That bag had worked its way down through the pile but is still in its original condition. There's not even a hole in it! The other stuff I have put in there is doing just as I would expect it to do. Other than the newest stuff, there is some lovely black almost soil looking compost in there. (I'm new to this, so please excuse my lack of proper gardening lingo.)
They say that these bags are supposed to be fully composted within 12-16 weeks. Am I crazy to be a little irritated that nothing has changed in 14 weeks? No, I'm not making a huge deal out of it, but it does have me wondering why the bag is practically reusable. Maybe it's just an ad campaign to make people feel better about tossing trash out the window.
