BioBags are made of corn, a biodegradable material that is an innovative environmental alternative to regular plastic bags.

"BioBag is proud to be the best selling brand of certified 100% biodegradable and 100% compostable bags made from the material, Mater-Bi," the company says. "We are also proud to be the first 'bag from corn' to achieve national distribution of retail products through natural food stores across the country."

It's estimated it would take 1,000 years for a plastic bag to decompose, which can leave you in shock when you think of all the waste produced by bags used for groceries, garbage or as poop scoop bags.

Now that we know how detrimental plastic is to the environment, it's time to make the conscious switch to greener products. BioBag makes 3 Gallon Kitchen Compost Bags, 13 Gallon Tall Kitchen Bags, 33 Gallon Lawn & Leaf Bags and even ones to take care of pet mess like Dog Waste Bags and Cat Pan Liners.

After San Francisco announced its ban on plastic bags, the city of SF sent out 10,000 BioBags to its residents.
