Another reason to eat Sun Chips!

Wow!  Way to go Sun Chips.  100% compostable packaging.  They even show you a cool video of it decomposing over time- just 14 weeks.   Well this is the start of our journey- guess I will report back in 14 weeks. 

Waiting to go out the compost bin.

The compost bin. You can get them at your local town dump and surprisingly they really don't smell. I think ours cost $45 or so? It is amazing the amount of stuff you can compost vs. throwing it away in the garbage. It is double worth it when the town you live in charges you $1 a trash bag and you HAVE to use town trash bags to dispose of your trash. 


  1. That is such a smart way to create an incentive so people recycle and compost rather than throwing things away. I think we would be paying at least $5-6 a week every week...

  2. Wow - can you tell me what you do with the compost? I don't have one...I'm afraid it would be smelly (I know, you tell me it doesn't but...) My sister in law is getting a worm bin - I say no to that but maybe you could convince me to do the compost are my partner afterall ;)

  3. Holly, thanks for your enthusiasm for the new SunChips compostable bag – we’re thrilled to hear that you compost at home! We’re trying to spread the word, so please visit to learn more, and become a fan of SunChips on Facebook.
