Compost-Turbo™ Helps Make Fertile Compost Fast

Compost Turbo, a new startup company located in the scenic hills of north Georgia, announces its new product, The Compost Turbo. This affordable new product allows you to use the proven method of compost aeration on a backyard compost pile or bin, without the heavy, back-straining hassle of turning the pile. The Compost Turbo lets you pump air into your bin, barrel, or pile of compost, and the air works as a catalyst to speed up the decomposition process. In essence, this invention works in place of a fan, large air-holes, or any other similar process to get the necessary air into your compost container, at an affordable price. At $29.99, the Compost-Turbo is something you will want to add to your organic gardening toolbox.

“A few years back, I noticed that my compost pile was not thriving, so I began investigating the science behind good composting.  I came up with a way to put a clean, lightweight aeration tool, the Compost Turbo, into the hands of every backyard organic gardener.” -Owner Paul Eison

The way to use this handy invention is simple, and virtually anyone can use it. Using the Compost Turbo takes less energy to aerate compost than inflating a bike tire with a hand-held pump. Simply insert the long narrow end of the Compost-Turbo into your compost container, pull the handle up, and gently push it down again. About five reps a couple of times per week should be satisfactory for most household compost containers. The designed and made in America Compost Turbo is light-weight and simple to use.  We think you will find that it is easier to speed up your composting by moving the air, not the compost.
