    We got the cheaper white Thank You tshirt bags as well just in case these didn't hold up or would rip easy. In the end these have worked great for us for months. Although they do cost a bit more than the cheaper, generic white thank you bags, we were pleased with the green and biodegradeable features as well as how well they stand up. They are still priced very reasonably and well worth the little extra cost. Our customers are also happy that we have a 'green' choice for our bags.

    We like to provide bags for takeout items and these are a perfect guilt-free option. Our customers like the fact that they are biodegradable and that they are not flimsy. They hold up well to weighted items, do not tear, and can handle the rainy season.

    Love these bags, the color, and that they are biodegradable. We chose these as our new option over our brown paper bags. Won't hold things up like a paper bag, but for small items, it works.
    I gave this item a try because I’m trying to avoid using plastic as much as possible. Good looking bag even better that they dispose easy, at least that what’s description said. Wouldn’t use it for heave items
    I Bought these bags in large quantities believing them to be biodegradable. Unfortunately the website is misleading and less then 50% of the product will break down unless it is sent to a very specific composting facility not found in many areas.
    Thank you for your review, Jacob! We are sorry this Green Herc 1/6 Size Biodegradable Plastic T-Shirt Bag - 500/Case has not worked well for you. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you soon!
    I would highly recommend these plastic bags because our customers reacted really good because we have ordered a product that is planet friendly, green, and give awareness to others. Very goodbye because we have them still and we have ordered them few months ago. We also do go through a lot of plastic bags .
    We didnt want to use a plastic bag but needed an option for bigger purchases. Happy webstaurantstore has a biodegradable option. Perfect for us at markets
    The more earth friendly the better. We have been transitioning more and more to use less plastic and these are a part of that! Good price. and strong hold.
    Solid biodegradable bags! Especially considering the price point. They are strong, attractive, and they come in a box that allows easy access and is a good size for easy storage.
    I originally ordered these bags because they are biodegradable, but was worried they wouldnt be sturdy enough for us. Thankfully, I was wrong! I am so happy with these bags. Strong, sturdy, and biodegradable?yes please
    A HIGHLY RECCOMEND !!! BIODEGRABLE PLASTIC BAG THAT A VERY DURABLE cant go wrong you can put more stuff in these bags with out worrying if the bag are going to break like paper bag.
    Arrived undamaged and product is exactly what it says. Nice bags and since I am recycling everything they are perfect for to go orders! Would recommend.
    I like knowing that I am easing my footprint within the environment by providing my farmers market customers biodegradable bags. They're easy to open, do not rip easily and hold everything I need them to! Will purchase again! Be careful opening the box, as the bags are not in anything but the box. Knives could slice through many layers if not careful!
    I cannot believe how strong these bags are and these are far more durable than a regular plastic bag of the same thickness! I love these, and I love knowing that they are Earth and ocean friendly/ biodegradable. I wish everyone would use these if the need calls for this type of bag and help put an end to using regular plastic bags!!! )))
    but it came in a plastic wrapper with packing tape, and a plastic lined mailer bag. a paper wrapper would have been better. otherwise, actual bags are great
    I love these bags. They are durable and eco friendly. I use them for garbage bags in my bathroom and bedrooms. I'd been looking for these bags for a long time. The handles work great for tying up the bag when it's full.
    So these are costly but biodegradable was why we bought them. They do stick together so separating them can he a bit difficult. Wish they came in different colors
    We are working hard on trying to switch over to all eco friendly products. The Biodegradable T shirt bags don't cost much more than the other bags we were using so it was a really easy and smart decision.
