PRODUCT OVERVIEW

The Composter Sack Composting System is the cost-effective, easy way to create compost right in the comfort of your own backyard with your family. This Composter Sack works like other hard sided composting bins - you put in your nitrogen and carbon rich materials, turn them from time to time, and let them decompose and turn into fresh, rich, black gold for your lawn and garden. Measuring 28 in. W x 34 in. H, this compost container has over a 60 gal. capacity. The key to the Composting Sack is the rot-proof outer material that allows for air circulation and moisture to enter the Sack. The inner liner helps to keep the moisture inside the sack, which is a key component of composting. The design also helps to keep odor down. The dark black color attracts heat which helps to speed up the composting and decomposition process. This Composter Sack is also very portable allowing the homeowner to easily move or re-use the Composter Sack at another location. The Composter Sack Composting System is ideal for learning how to compost with your family. It is cost effective and easy to use generating the same end results. Due to the low cost of the Composter Sack System the homeowner can purchase multiple units for the same cost as a single unit from our competitors.

  • Portable fits inside an average shoe box
  • Easy to use - set-up takes under 1 minute
  • Holds over 60 gal. of composting material
  • Made from rot-proof material for years of work use
  • Custom pull cord locking system

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 2.3 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by compost bag Too early to know about the quality of the compost but the bag is simple to use and mobile. We can easily roll it around to mix up the compost. We expect to get a second bag in the future and allow one to compost while we are filling up the other. No reason to get some large, plastic container that will end up in a landfill someday. We chose the 60 pound bag over the 100 pound for ease of use. July 3, 2013
Rated 1 out of 5 by Compost sack Awkward and cumbersome bag. It doesn't retain moisture; additions to the bag dry out quickly. Added water runs out without soaking in to compost. November 24, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Unhappy Beginner I am a beginner in composting and I am incredibly unsatisfied with this item. I chose this composting bag because I do not have a big yard and figured it would be better than having a huge metal or plastic bin in the yard. I've had this product for about 4 months now and it looks terrible. I have this sitting on my walk way in the yard rather than in the grass because I didn't want it to create a bald spot. In the first couple weeks, bugs had chewed a hole in the bottom of the bag to get in. I attempted to contact the company twice to see if anything could be done about my purchase because I did not want to put a used compost bag in the car and drive to Home Depot. Both times I had to leave a message and no one ever returned my call. Since then, the bugs have chewed several quarter sized and bigger holes in the bag, allowing even more bugs to get in. The bag is unable to cinch completely shut, creating another opening. The porous material allows rain in which seems to make the process go faster but it also creates a nasty film under the bag as it drains though, which attracts ants and flies so you end up with maggots all over the underside of the bag. As a beginner, I understand that composting attracts bugs because the food and plant matter is decomposing but I didn't think I would have to deal with coming in contact with them. I've read my fair share of composting info to get started and learn how to maintain a low odor compost with sufficient amounts of brown and green material, which I hoped would keep flies and fruit flies away for the most part, but it has not. The bag in the beginning attracted tons of flies and over time I had countless fruit flies inside the bag to deal with as well. I had to get into the habit of jiggling the bag, opening it and stepping back so the fruit flies could escape quickly and I could dump my new waste in or else they would fly in my face. Now that I've had it for more than a few months, the bag has gotten heavier so it is more difficult to toss around to mix the old compost with the new compost, and because of the holes, I end up with remnants of waste around the yard. In heavy rain, it's even harder to mix up because everything is literally plastered to the bottom of the bag and dries that way. I am a gardener and don't mind bugs and getting dirty but this bag has grossed me out on several occasions and I have not been satisfied with anything regarding it or the company that created it. I lucked out and obtained a metal composting barrel with a crank that a family member was getting rid of. No more nasty ratty old bag. November 7, 2014
