Yes, we're composting the new Sun Chips bags

A couple of weeks ago, some one brought a bag of Sun Chips to a friend’s birthday party. The new bags, as you probably have heard, are labeled as compostable.

I've tried composting items labeled as biodegradable or compostable many times, including the misguided attempt to compost hundreds of beer cups from the local Earth Day festival a few years ago. Smaller quantities and thinner items work much better so I took the bag home for another backyard science experiment.

The bag went in on April 20. Since then, it’s ripped once and it’s starting to look a little withered.

I’ll add pictures/updates as the bag changes.
