Have You Heard It? SunChips New Sustainable Bag

by Rob Busse, CPP - Chainalytics

We are very excited about SunChips new 100% compostable chip bag. It’s made from PLA (polylactic acid), which is a derivative of corn starch and decomposes in 14 days under prime composting conditions.

This is a great step forward with sustainability; the only thing to mention is that the new bag can make eating chips a little more noticeable. The crisp bag is so loud when touched that we suggest transferring the chips into a resealable bag or bowl right after opening. That way you can get the bag into the compost pile as soon as possible.


  1. We know the bag is noisy, but like you, we’re trying to spread the word on why making a little noise to help the environment isn’t such a bad thing. Thanks for the posting check out for more information on the bag and how to compost it.

  2. A little noise pollution seems like small price to pay to save real pollution :)

  3. I'd hate to be the truck driver for a full shipment of these bags! Hope he has some industrial ear plugs!
