Alternatives to garbage bags

One common Earth-friendly goal is reducing our use and disposal of plastic. When it comes to getting rid of our household waste, plastic garbage bags are a necessity.

Since COVID-19 reared its ugly head, many items have been flying off the shelves — so, what happens if your store is out of stock? Are there viable alternatives to your regular plastic garbage bags?

Most stores will sell a compostable alternative. These bags are made of materials that reportedly break down within a specified period of time — reportedly up to six months, which beats the several hundreds of years it takes for plastic to degrade. If you choose to take this route, look for bags made from plant-based materials or cornstarch to reduce the amount of chemicals leaching into the earth upon breakdown.

Other suggestions for disposing household waste are reusing large empty animal food bags to line your garbage can, or even paper yard waste bags — for garbage that is on the drier side of the spectrum.
