Making the best compostable trash bags is our calling

Why? Because plastic is a problem. Trash bags might not be the most glamorous calling. But taking out the trash is a dirty job, and someone’s gotta do it. By bringing you the best compostable trash bags possible, we make it easier than ever to say no to single-use plastic bags. Here are a few facts that motivated our mission.

Stretching a Plastno compostable garbage bag


We say no to plastic

Once we learned the cold hard facts about single-use plastic bags, we set about doing something about it. We knew trash bags were an essential part of everyday living, but we thought to ourselves “Do they need to be made from plastic? No, they don’t!” And that’s how Plastno was born. 

Our goal is to keep investing in eco-friendly innovation to bring you the best compostable trash bags possible. Bags that are just as strong and durable as they are safe for the planet.

A tough bag to follow

Unlike any old biodegradable garbage bag, ours are fully compostable too. This means they meet strict requirements to break down within a specific timeframe, leaving nothing toxic behind. 

We believe they are the best compostable trash bags you can buy because they’re super strong (just read our reviews), and fully decompose both at home and in commercial facilities. Also, unlike other brands, we made ours white – so your garbage doesn’t stick out like a green thumb. 

Our certifications

When considering any eco-friendly alternative to trash bags, it’s important to check their credentials. Our bags are BPI and TUV-certified for composting at home and in commercial facilities, which means they are independently verified to meet the highest standards of compostability. Once disposed of, they’ll disappear within just a few weeks, leaving nothing toxic behind.

BPI Certified

BPI Certified

Setting the standard for industrial composting in North America, BPI ensures our bags are safe for commercial facilities. They are rigorously checked to ensure they leave no synthetic residue behind.

TUV Certified

TUV Certified

Globally recognized, TUV-certified means our bags have passed multiple tests for safe home composting. Put simply, they will break down cleanly in your own backyard – into organic matter safe for use on plants.
