I know this post has nothing to do here, but I didn't know where to ask.

I think I remember reading on your blog something about incinerating biobags is worse than incinerating plastic bags. Did I read wrong? Please help. :)

Thank you Beth!

Actually, it wasn't about incinerating but landfilling. Organic matter, like food or other bio-based products, will create methane gas in the anaerobic conditions of the landfill. Finding a way to actually compost is better.
