Gempler's Leaf Burrito
Item # 231237-5

Reusable! Keeps single-use plastic bags out of our landfills
The Leaf Burrito is an ingenious new yard debris system that makes the arduous task of bagging leaves, hedge clippings, weeds, sticks, and grass clippings be an incredibly simple and eco-friendly experience! It starts completely flat for instant loading then burritos up with heavy duty zippers. Industrial-grade mesh will not tear or collect water like plastic trash cans and bags. Find it at or call 1-800-382-8473 to place your order.
