Why Use If You Care Certified Compostable Bags? Approximately 80 million tons of waste (U.S. EPA figures) which goes to landfill annually is material which under the right conditions, can be turned into compost, including food scraps, yard trimmings and non-recyclable paper. In a landfill environment, this organic material (food scraps, etc.) releases methane gas-a greenhouse gas-contributing to global warming. Diverting food scraps and yard trimmings from landfill to compost facilities-either municipal or commercial in areas where they are available-contributes significantly to preserving our planet and natural resources.
