FW: [GreenYes] composting paper bags?
Here's your answer: Yes, the paper bags are perfectly safe to compost as are all paper fibers that are not suitable for recycling.
 
This comes from Conni Kunzler, consultant for AF&PA and who helped conduct a study on paper in compost. If you need any additional information, AF&PA may have some info. on their website: www.afandpa.org - look under the recycling section they may have a white paper on paper and compost.
