Cruncy, and recyclable

Imagine that – Sun Chips now comes in compostable bags, says Waste Recycling News:

Snack foods maker SunChips is now packaging its multigrain chips in compostable bags, the company said.

The new bags are made from plant-based polylactic acid. The bags will fully compost in approximately 14 weeks when placed in a hot, active compost bin. The new compostable bags, one of the latest sustainability initiatives from PepsiCo┬┤s Frito-Lay division, will be at full distribution in North America by April 22.

The bags feel kinda funny, but hey – it’s a start!
