There’s something magical about the thought of eating an entire bag of chips during your midnight munchies craving, and instead of throwing the bag away in the trash, you throw it into your compost pile…don’t you think? I do, and that’s why I was pleasantly surprised to hear about Frito-Lay’s new SunChips 100% compostable chip bags.
It took 4 years of research and numerous field trials to make the 100% compostable bag, but SunChips finally did it! So, how did they do it? The company created the bags by using renewable, plant-based PLA plastic, which fully breaks down in compost in just 14 weeks.
