Certified by Oceanworks https://oceanworks.co/ though i have no real way to verify their usefulness, or how they interact with communities.
Seems like there's certainly a need in Thailand to subsidize waste management, inc improving waterway pollution and reducing the amount of plastics reaching the ocean,as of 2016 nearly half of Thailand lacked formal waste management https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waste_management_in_Thailand

  • isn't Aldi stil cheaper?

    • +4

      Had no idea Aldi delivered, or sold Glad for that matter. Haven't been there in a very long time. 20 min drive to Aldi and last i checked no internet ordering/packing/delivery/service of any kind. Coles is basically opposite my driveway and Woolies is another 200m.

          Watch the Chaser, he put a tag on the bag, Most of aussie garbage is not processed in Aus, ends up overseas, and who knows what they do with it ?

          Pretty bad that we cant process our own shit.

          • -6

            @kzrocky: That's recycling isn't it? General waste mostly gets buried or burnt.

        • Aldi/Coles/Woolies stuff even on sale isn't cheaper for many items.

          • -2

            @thestig: And?? Their bin bags are cheaper then this. Which is all GY666 was saying

        • In Australia, no rubbish from your garbage bin ends up in the ocean.

          Not even a single gram?

          • -3

            @spaceflight: Not from your kitchen bin.. unless you take it to the ocean & dump.it there.

            • -1

              @M00Cow: How can you be so sure that not a single piece of plastic has ever blown from landfill into the ocean, been carried by a seagull, blown from the bin or truck etc in the entire time we have been sending things to landfill?

              • +3

                @spaceflight: Because landfill in Australia has been designed for decades not to do that. That's why they're inland, and processed daily My old.man works in one for 30+yrs. Councils don't want to clean up the foreshore. Next time you're at the beach, ask the guys who clean the beach in the morning how much household waste ends up in the beach. It's mostly washed up stuff from storm water pipes, stuff from sea containers and then a distance last, stuff dropped locally. You get the odd pollution from floods/storm water of course.

                • @M00Cow: Id like to have some of whatever you've been smoking.

                  Might need to detox on all the propaganda you've been taking in.

                • @M00Cow:

                  Because landfill in Australia has been designed for decades not to do that.

                  So landfills are built to be completely indoors? That seems expensive.
                  Or do they build them in areas where there never is any wind?

                  That's why they're inland, and processed daily

                  So it's completely impossible that a piece of plastic can be carried from inland to the ocean by the wind, animals, vehicles?

                  What about from a processing centre like this.

                  Maybe because it's across the road from a beach you are going to call it inland

                • @M00Cow: Yep, those plastic islands are mainly run out of two or three rivers from a country with a quite different approach to the environment. Amazing how the problem is actually quite localised.

    These are my favourite garbage bags! Very strong

      What's your favourite brand of prophylactic? You don't seem like the type who double bags.

      • +1

        Lot of people just take them and don't pay but yes, they're supposed to be 15c and they also announced today those will be gone by end of June next year.

        • +6

          If they just take them, wouldn't that make anything in the supermarket free?

          • +1

            @thestig: Harder to steal though as you can’t just tap ‘these are my own apples’ rather than ‘I’m using my own bags’.

            • +1

              @Ridiculous Panda: At that point why are you even waiting at the checkout lanes? Theres a door, it usually opens for you as you approach.

          • @thestig: Well the staff often just tell customers to take them (I've been told heaps of times just to grab a few bags) , the supermarkets don't even pay 1c for them. Also when you do a C&C or he.delivery, they chuck them in (for me at least).

            But otherwise, yes you're stealing and it's wrong. But it doesn't make this a deal.

    These are slightly different to the ones available at Coles, and cheaper (Coles ones are $4.80).

    https://shop.coles.com.au/a/national/product/glad-to-be-gren...

    However the Coles versions (Glad to be Green plant based), are also available on Amazon here:
    https://www.amazon.com.au/Glad-Based-Kitchen-25Pack-kilogram...

    You get 30 medium bags instead of 26, and they are currently $3.60 (or $3.24 S&S).

    In a nutshell, no deal… get these ones instead. More bags and cheaper, and still environmentally friendly.
    And they are available now… you'll get them in a couple days. OP's bags aren't coming for a few weeks.

    Plus… Made in Australia!!

    • +1

      You need to buy 5 bags or more and get 20% extra and it will be cheaper. I use the green bag. Really good quality no rip from heavy load, but going to give this version a try due to discount.

    • +2

      Those are actually more expensive than the $2.91 if you buy over $20.
      I dont see the massive advantage of 50% plant based plastic? This is 50% plastic that was destined for either refuse or the sea, but more importantly (at least to me) its cleaning up the waterways of Thailand where millions of people live. And the premium over the cheapest possible option with who knows what consequence is REALLY small at this price as people have shown.
      If the petrochemical origin of the plastics is your main concern the 95% recycled may be your choice, theyre also 20% off over $20 https://www.amazon.com.au/dp/B08HDR7CXM
      Theres also a wealth of biodegradable options if plastic pollution of landfills is your big concern, i figure we will probably be mining them soon enough.

      • +1

        I dont see the massive advantage of 50% plant based plastic?

        Especially because it's still plastic.

        Theres also a wealth of biodegradable options if plastic pollution of landfills is your big concern,

        Except that things don't biodegrade in landfill, and "biodegradable plastic" is generally biodegradable in commercial compost facilities built to process "biodegradable plastic", not your regular green waste composting facility

  • Anything cheap for organic bin caddy

    Thanks. It's nice that they're "green" but really I use these ones because they're the best fit for my bins.

  • Sooooo making more plastic with plastic?……

    Just because you're claiming to recycle 50% of the ocean's plastic, doesn't mean the product is any better than other bin liners.

    • If you read the small print its actually plastic recovered from communities within 50km of the ocean who have no formal waste collection facilities. Plastic they consider otherwise destined for the sea.
      But the encouragement of the development of waste management infrastructure in the third world and the reduction of waterway pollution for millions seems at least as big a goal to me. Honestly theyre poorly marketed.

      • The small print on the back of the packing says they are "made from 50% ocean recycled plastic" which is not true and somewhat misleading.

        It doesn't match the other fine print about coming from coastal communities.

        • Yeah the marketing is honestly 5#!7house and half the reason i looked into it was it seemed so kinda iffy.
          Hidden down the bottom of their info page https://www.glad.com.au/ocean-recycled/
          is teh reality that it doesnt come from the ocean at all, but comes from

          "Oceanworks® partners with local entrepreneurs to collect ocean-bound plastic waste in developing countries that lack waste management infrastructure. The extracted plastic waste is recycled into pellets and used to make our Ocean Bound Recycled Kitchen Tidy Bags.

          Oceanworks® aims to turn off the tap on ocean plastic and improve lives in collector communities by boosting incomes and incentivising the permanent removal of plastic waste from the local environment."

          Which honestly seems a bigger deal than just ocean plastics. Honestly it makes me VERY uneasy defending any form of conscious consumerism, change has to come from manufacturers and governments. But honestly this seems to be the intersection of al that and its not costing me any more, so why not

    • Sooooo making more plastic with plastic?……

      What's the alternative?

  • Ocean bound plastic is collected from communities with no formal waste management system within 50km of the shore line.

    Isn't collecting plastic to make it into bags then a formal waste management system?

    • That would be the effect/point of encouraging infrastructure development in countries that lack it i believe?

      • But how can they collect the plastic from communities with no formal waste management system when setting something up in the community so they can collect the plastic means that the community has a formal waste management system.

    Glad to be green my ass… get your bin bags individually delivered, by a van, to your front door, in a plastic bag or box that is going into waste…

    Get from Coles/WW on your next trip to the supermarket

    • in a plastic bag or box that is going into waste…

      I recycle all clean soft plastics & cardboard, so no, it isn't.

  • Damn the medium is OOS! This fits my bin the best :(
