What you can compost

These specially marked bags are available at select retailers, visit the Off The Eaten Path website to find out where to find these bags!

Best practices

You don’t need to clean the packaging before sending it to TerraCycle, but please remove as much of the remaining product as possible. UPS will not accept dripping packages, so please make sure your items are dry.

What happens to your snack bags

Once collected, the snack bags are composted in an industrial composting facility. The packaging will be broken down into compost that can be used for gardens and farms.


For every Off The Eaten Path commercially compostable snack bag you send us between July 1, 2021 through May 30, 2022, Off The Eaten Path will donate $1 to Ocean Conservancy to help nurture the planet! (up to $192,000).
