Back in April of last year'10 I bought 2 of those compostable Sun Chip bags of chips,finished the 1st. one and put it in the compost pile about a foot deep,the 2nd one I decided to cut it into strips to see if it helped.Well today,2/07/11 I turned my pile and I'm sorry to say they both looked like I just put them in there yesterday,although the 2nd. one is starting to show the orange color of the bag rubbing off alittle bit. :cry:

Thank you for this great research feedback. I assume that you know that the compostable bag was abandoned by Frito-Lay several months after it was introduced. They got the PR and marketing impressions that they wanted by promoting and advertising their great new bag for a year - that it was coming soon. Then they just made it go away. They are doing the same thing now with thier "natural" advertising. It is amazing that a company thinks that it can con the public through a lot of advertising dollars. Hopefully your research and the good common sense of others will see through the Frito-Lay green washing about their "nutritious" and "healthy" snacks.

You know they did another screw-up last year,they(Fritolay),had an ad on the back of some magazines that showed people picking potatoes from a bush and not the real way.I called Fritolay and asked them where I could see this remarkable potato bush,the women who was on the phone said she didn't knowwhat to tell me/ :D
