Melcourt® Bag for Life

The Melcourt Bag for Life is a unique system of compost buying which allows the consumer to use the same packaging for their SylvaGrow purchases, over and over again. The bag only has to be used twice before less plastic has been consumed than with traditional plastic packaging.

Participating garden centres buy large maxi-bales of SylvaGrow from which the compost is transferred, 40 litres at a time.

RHS endorsed.

Product Description

The customer chooses a product and you fill the Bag For Life from the Maxi Bale. Customer pays for the growing media and a Bag For Life (if a first-time customer). Customer uses the product and returns to store to buy more product using the same Bag For Life.
