This is the start of week 2 of my Sun Chips compostable green bag experiment. On the back of the bag it advertises that the bag will fully compost in 12 weeks. I am going to test that out.
At the end of week 1, after 7 full days, I noticed no deterioration whatsoever. This does not mean that it won’t happen. It just means that there are no visible signs so far.
For those of you who are skeptically minded, I have placed an active compost mix both above and below the bag. This compost mix is a mix of full composted material, uncomposted organic material, and everything in between. The compost is in various states of breakdown and some of it has been composting for 6 months. The box is placed outside in the elements where it is affected by both rain and sun.
Here is the video of what I found after 7 days.
