5.2 compostable bags
The "compostable bags" available which are available on the market sound "green", but unfortunately they are not. These can only be composted under industrial or laboratory conditions (after 12 weeks at 60 degrees, 90 percent must have broken down into parts smaller than 2mm). Such conditions are not found on any home compost.
If degradable bags (under "normal conditions") are actually available at some point, that would be an optimal solution. We would be very happy to receive relevant information.
The included bags are very thin and yet tight. The standard bags weigh 1.8 g per piece - that's really very little plastic. In addition, if properly disposed, the plastic is incinerated in the residual waste and thus used to generate energy and heat.
When considering the ecological balance in its entirety (from production over use to disposal), the use of a flexaport insert is significantly better than many "real" dry composting toilets: in 3,000 (!!!) sessions, around 5 kg are lost in the form of the above-mentioned plastic bags consumed - most TTTs available on the market are manufactured of more plastic (the disposal of the old toilet on top). If garbage bags are used to collect the solids in a composting toilet, it uses even more plastic. Compared to the chemical toilet, there is no need for chemicals or disposal trips.
Alternatively, paper-inserts can be placed into the flexaport container and collected in a separate (closed) waste bin.
