dsolv is a user-friendly, compostable lawn waste management system. The system is centered around the dsolv bag; a sustainable, compostable mesh made from a plant-based resin. dsolv bags are rain-resistant, ventilated, and have a higher capacity than standard lawn bags. The dsolv system also features a reusable dsolv barrel that helps support the mesh bag in use. One person, working alone, can fill and carry bags with ease. A handle is also included for easy transport to the curb. Once picked up and delivered to a commercial composting facility, dsolv will compost in less than 12 weeks providing a simple and sustainable way to take care of yard waste.
In addition, we researched and explored dozens of packaging technologies and settled on the most environmentally friendly and practical solutions we could find. The durable zippered carry case has our product and contact information right on it. It even includes a QR-tag directing consumers to video on our website. Its a durable bag that includes no overpacking. The consumable mesh bags are shrink-wrapped in PLA (compostable resin of which our mesh bags are made) and compressed as small as possible. Since they are compostable too, they can go right in with other yard waste. Both packaging solutions cost a little more money, but are more environmentally appropriate and support the overall product.
