As assembled, the Urban Worm Bag may appear very similar to a product called the Worm Inn or Worm Inn Mega. And in fact, both worm bins employ the same continuous flow-through concept, are built wth similar materials, and feature a breathable environment where aerobic conditions can be maintained throughout the vermicomposting process.
But the similarities end there.
The Urban Worm Bag is priced drastically lower than both the Worm Inn and the Worm Inn Mega, for a limited time.
While the Urban Worm Bag's suggested manufacturer's price is $109, we are offering an introductory 25% off during our launch on Amazon.com
with a price tag of $79.
When the Urban Worm Bag begins selling at its full price, it will still be much more affordable than both the Worm Inn and the Worm Inn Mega for the reasons listed below.
We are offering free shipping on any Urban Worm Bag shipped to the lower 48 US states.
The Worm Inn does not feature free shipping.
Frame: Included with the Urban Worm Bag, not so much with the competition
Purchasers of the Worm Inn may be fooled by the images showing it assembled on a PVC frame. Unless you want to create your own frame, you are expected to purchase
- the stand kit ($9.99 + 6.95 shipping)
- 3 x 10-ft lengths of PVC and cut it to size and glue it yourself. Those lengths of PVC will cost you another $10.
Just the smaller version of the Worm Inn (currently for sale at $69.99 will cost you $105 when you add up all of the extra costs.
Thanks to shipping and purchasing your own frame, your all-in cost of the Worm Inn Mega is not $109.99, but nearly $137.
The Urban Worm Bag comes with an attractive frame built from iron, yet engineered to be lighter than PVC. Assembly is simple and requires no modification.
Just remove it from the box, set it up, and start vermicomposting.
Both products feature water-resistant nylon and a mesh top resembling mosquito netting to prevent the entry of unwanted insects.
But the bottom of the Worm Inn features a troublesome drawstring enclosure that can never fully close and can be awkward to harvest castings from. And the Worm Inn is only supported (on whatever frame you're expected to build for it) by 4 corner straps attached with zip ties.
This can cause a droop and uneven stress on a do-it-yourself PVC frame.
The Urban Worm Bag is built to distribute the considerable weight of a full bag of vermicompost over the entire frame using tunneling built on to the worm bin using reinforced stitching, reducing wear and tear on both the bag and the frame.
The Urban Worm Bag also features heavy duty marine-grade nylon zippers closing both the top mesh and the flat bottom designed to prevent leakage while maintaining the ease of your castings harvest.
Cover and Moisture Barrier
Unlike plastic systems that tend to produce wet, anaerobic vermicompost, breathable systems can sometimes breathe too much, especially in dry climates.
For this reason, we designed a specially-fitted cover and moisture barrier (not included) for the Urban Worm Bag, an attractive Cordura material that will reduce airflow over the mesh top of the worm bin in order to slow evaporation.
The cover is easy to install and remove, and gives your worm bin an even cleaner look while also maintaining a dark environment, which is optimal for your worms.
The Worm Inn does not offer any accessories to slow evaporation.
Warranty and Return Policy
As of publication, the Worm Inn's website suggests no return policy or warranty.
