Another Compost Experiment

Remember that test I did with the supposedly compostable drinking glass from Pizzeria Pagliacci's a couple years ago? Well, I ran across another product making the "compostable" claim, only this time to a greater degree (to see the info, go here and then click "compostable packaging"*). Call me a skeptic if you want, but I just had to try it.

It turns out that the timing is such that the Sun Chips bag is the first item in this year's bin, having just emptied the now well composted soil into the gardens. This means maximum compost time, pressure, and heat. I'll check on it in 12 weeks or so, maybe a little longer to allow for enough other food stuff to really get the party started. Then I will report back.

This is skeptical environmental consumer lookout guy signing off.

they do say it is going to take at least 14 weeks...but i'm going to stand by what i said in the last prediction, won't get hot enough in a-train. but i could be wrong. on another note, how freaking annoying are those bags? soooo loud!

awesome! i can't wait to see the results. i'm thinking that bag will look the exact same, with a little dirt here and there.
