Paper Bag Princess
We've always thought it ironic to send our compost to the city in plastic bags – especially once the now-defunct bag tax put them in shorter supply.
Canadian eco-friendly manufacturer Cascades has come to the rescue with double-layered kitchen waste bags ($14.99 for 40) made from 100 per cent recycled paper. I found them easy to use, leakproof and – best of all – absent of that unsexy eau de green bin that permeates the plastic kitchen container no matter how many times you wash it. Forget plastic fantastic – these paper bags have true green cred. —Kat Tancock
