Sun Chips Introduces World's First 100% Compostable Chip Bag


Sun Chips:
We believe small steps can bring about big change. That's why we're taking a step toward better packaging. Earth Day 2010, we plan to introduce the first 100% compostable chip bag of its kind.

We created this time lapse video from photos taken every 15 minutes as the bag was decomposing over 14 weeks in a hot, active compost just like one you could use at home. So you eat the chips. The earth eats the bag. And we all live in a cleaner world.
Poor plastic bag industry.
