Flat Bottom Versus Star Bottom Bags
EarthSense black trash bags are made with a flat bottom, creating a two-dimensional bag that holds 30% more waste than star bottom bags. A flat seal provides more durable protection against leaks. Star seal bags may conform better to garbage cans with a more rounded shape, but they are more likely to fill up quickly.
What Is a Low-Density Bag?
These large trash bags fall into the category of low-density, which ultimately means it is designed to withstand rough waste and difficult transportation conditions. They provide a durable hold and are intended for storing potentially sharp and rough-edged objects through transport conditions that may toss it about. Low-density bags are more resistant to tearing and ripping than high-density bags.
Great for Spring Cleaning
