Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RED Good stuff!
This company collects people's uneaten vegetable scraps to make its products. Great way to contribute to sustainability!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by koshkaqueen what happened?
this is a good product but has been out of stock at my local store for about a couple of weeks. not only that, but, the shelf tag has been scraped off and something else stocked in its place (with no shelf tag for that item). the website claims that there are over 100 bags available. home depot is the only store i can find this and they seem to have discontinued it. such a shame.

I really wanted to like this product because they divert food waste from landfills, but the product isn't consistent or good in my experience. I don't use chemical fertilizers in my yard and like to add compost to my raised beds every spring to replenish nutrients and organic matter. I make my own compost, but rarely ever have enough and need to buy a few bags to supplement. The first time I bought a bag of this it was very heavy. The product was very dark, wet and clumpy. I thought I'd give them one more shot and bought another bag nearly a year later. This time the product was loose, but course, almost woody. The smell when I opened the bag almost knocked me over- ammonia! It had either not been composted enough or properly. Will not purchase again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by April Great company, terrible compost
While I love what the company stands for, the product is poor. We purchased several bags and each one was full of super dry fine powdery dirt, not soil, not compost, just dirt. Water would run off the compost and pool up leaving the dry dust patches everywhere. Where soil is concerned you get what you pay for I guess.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by VegasSlacker Home Depot is the only store that stocks Ecoscraps in Vegas
Yes, Vegas is in the desert, but there are many benefits to setting up an organic garden because of the unique climate here. I've been searching high and low for organic...much less veganic compost to start my raised bed garden and have been frustrated as to how little is available compared to other areas of the country. I discovered that Home Depot stocks EcoScraps in only two locations, so I drove across town to the closest location to me off of Decatur and Tropicana. I picked up 10 bags and was also very impressed with how knowledgeable the staff in the garden section was. I can't speak to the effectiveness of the compost yet, but I do hope that Home Depot continues to stock OMRI certified mulch and soil.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by HVNguyen Not great but better than other bagged products.
Smells neutral with no manure stink. Some bags were rich and moist. Other bags were like ash. There were quite a few pieces of plastic in all of them. No, I'm not talking about the bag the compost is in, but bits of other plastics. There were also some bits of yard trimming.
This is about 4 time pricier than similar product from bulk garden supplier. If I have time, I'll be going to them instead. First time using it so time will tell how well my vegetables will grow.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Michelle Inconsistent quality, but if you get a good bag....
In the good bags-- this stuff is great. Was dark, fluffy, and moist like a chocolate cake. (even have to keep the dogs from eating it) However, the quality is inconsistent. I purchased at least 20 bags from 3 different stores this month. 4 of 6 bags purchased at a particular store were sour smelling, contained bits of plastic, were dry and had white mold across the top. It was covered in flies by the next afternoon and the smell is still there. I covered it with an additional 5 [good] bags in hopes that the bottom layer will continue decomposing. A few other [good] bags were used for tropical plants/trees so we'll see how they fare. All but two beds of my garden were planted with this stuff, so despite the 4 bad bags, I liked the product enough to continue purchasing.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Expressionsoftheheart Good but not good
I normally, as a veganic farmer, do not buy compost but make it myself, plus I have worm trenches. However, I heard of this product and decided to try it for my greenhouse plants. To preface my opinion - I never have had aphids in the decade on this farm. I planted everything using this compost; in air pots. I started having a huge aphid population. So they must have been on the produce they composted, and laid eggs. After about two months and no let up I took everything out of the pots, scoured the pots and re-potted with coir. No aphids. I am now using the rest of the pallet I bought in my no-till gardens. It will be under 18" of hay so the chances are that there will not be a aphid problem. I would recommend this product only in a no-till garden type of situation.
