The EnsoPet Waste Composting System from Bokashi is an in-ground animal poo composting system which is environmentally friendly. 

The most popular method of collecting pet waste from parks, beaches, nature strips and footpaths is using plastic bags and disposing these into landfill. Composting pet waste with EnsoPet would successfully reduce tonnes of plastic bags and pet waste ending up in landfill.

The EnsoPet is a bottomless composter which is buried, leaving the lid exposed. The EnsoPet Starter mix uses bacteria and enzyme cultures to accelerate the composting rate of the animal waste. It’s easy to use by simply picking up stools with the tongs provided and placing them inside the system then sprinkling the EnsoPet Starter mix on top. 

RRP: $75.90 (Kit) from
