compostable quiet

Maybe you heard about this maybe you didn’t…or maybe you heard someone next to you eating SunChips out of the old compostable but VERY NOISY bag last summer. Well, Frito Lay just recently reduced the noise that the compostable bags make.  They found that by using a more rubbery adhesive to put the bag together, the noise level dropped from around 80 to 85 decibels to around 70 decibels.  Subjectively, a 10 decibel drop is about half as loud.  So maybe now you can sneak a snack at midnight without waking up your neighbors and then bury the evidence in your compost pile.  Happy Earth Day!
