Compostable bag decomposing in desk top bins (1)

This month I am hoping to be able to show compostable bags decomposing before our eyes in my desk top See-Through Compost Container.  I have taken  samples of  three compostable bags,  two of which where wrappings round magazines while the third was a compostable garden refuse sack.

Each sample has been stretched  across an 10cm special design plastic frame ( the lid and top 2com of a yoghourt  pot) so that any decomposition can be observed.

The compost materials will be mixed before being added to the “ mini bins”  and will be moisten once mixed.  The materials will be removed occasional to be topped up, remixed and moistened. Th Photos will be regularly posted on this blog with the full set being shown on the  Compostable bag page of http://www.carryoncomposting.com/416920209  ( link from this blog Compostable Bags)
