|When used with the Fresh Air Kitchen Compost Collector the compostable bags can "breathe". This allows heat and moisture to escape, which reduces bacteria build-up and off-gassing, thus reducing odour.
Compostable bags are designed to degrade like the food they contain. While these bags are built tough, the degradation process begins when they come into contact with organic materials such as food waste, continuing to break down with time. Bag degradation will vary in relation to room temperature. During normal usage, you should replace bags every 3-5 days.
