Yard waste bags are not created equal

I hate Home Depot yard waste bags. Every single one I have used has torn. I cannot even tamp down the yard waste in it without the sides splitting.

I find the ones sold at Canadian Tire or Loblaws to be much more robust. Heck, I can jump on them and the don't rip.

Makes me wonder were Home Depot gets theirs, because there cannot be that many different manufacturers of yard waste bags.

It's not where they get them from it's how much they pay for them. The cheaper the bag the thinner the plastic. I have noticed it over here in Lithuania. One company is obviously making a bigger profit from their bags than the other.

carra: they are large, double-ply, 1 metre high, brown paper bags. They feel the same to the touch (maybe I should measure the thickness with my micrometer). The Home Depot bags seem more ... brittle.
