Bag That Compost

By: Charlie Nardozzi

Composting has many benefits, including enlivening soil, reducing food waste, and reducing the amount of organic matter going to the local landfills. However, many gardeners find composting a messy, back-breaking process. Even with compost bins and tumblers, filling, turning, and emptying those composters can take work. Now a new product makes composting a little more portable and easier.

The Compost Comfort Bag is a UV-stabilized, polyethylene bag that is durable, reusable, and lightweight. Just fill the bags and stack them free-form in a pile or place them in a compost bin or tumbler. The bags have holes for air flow and watering to aid in the decomposition of the raw materials. Instead of moving the compost to turn it, simply flip the bag. When the compost is finished, open the bag and pour it into a garden cart to distribute or directly on the garden. Even if you have a composting system that you love, these bags can be used to store raw materials to be added into the compost pile later. The bags come in two sizes (9 and 18 gallons) and should last for years.
