Description

If You Care 100% Certified Compostable Food Waste Bags are made from potato starch from non-GMO starch potatoes, blended with a certified, fully compostable polymer. No plasticizers are added. What makes Potato Starch strong? Starch is a mixture of a linear (amylose) and a branched (amylopectin) polymer of glucose. Potato starch has a higher percentage of amylopectin than either corn or wheat starch. The structural integrity of starch is due to amylopectin, so this helps make If You Care Certified Compostable Bags stronger than bags made from corn starch. Any other reasons for Potato Starch? The potato starch used to make If You Care Certified Compostable Bags come from starch potatoes, which are not grown for food but only for starch production. These potatoes are too high in starch to be good for food. Therefore, there is no diversion from food supplies. To produce the same amount of starch from these potatoes as from corn requires 40% less land. These potatoes require no irrigation, and need only normal rainfall. Corn requires much more water.

Warnings

These bags are for food waste only. Do not put liquids in bags at any time. Always allow food waste to cool before putting in bags.

Large corporations today employ between 200 to 400 times more people than what populated any of Europe’s most prominent medieval cities. It’s predicted that by 2020, the size of the global middle class will have almost tripled to 4.9 billion, from 1.8 billion in 2009.

At last count, the number of unique mobile connections operating across the internet outnumbered humans by1.2 billion. This dense interconnectivity removes the effect of the physical barriers (like oceans and mountains) that forced separation between nations. It also means that more machines than humans are communicating with one another to share information about and make decisions on behalf of humans in real time.

My relationship with yoga is a complicated one. I’ve become fast friends with some poses, while engaging in long-standing feuds with others. It’s taken me some time to accept that yoga is not about performance, but practice – both on and off the mat.
