Rather than make daily trips to the compost pile because of smelly, compost-bound scraps, this counter-top or under-cabinet Compost Bucket has built-in, activated-carbon filters to absorb odors. Toss in vegetable scraps, tea bags, eggshells and other organic materials, then take to the compost pile later. Includes (1) carbon filter, snap lid, easy carry handle.
Composting benefits the environment, your garden and your community. Making compost reduces trash, creates free soil fertilizer, helps soil to retain moisture and resist erosion, improves garden yields, turns waste into a valuable resource, saves limited landfill space, and recycles nutrients back into the soil.
Composting is also surprisingly rewarding and enjoyable for many people, even people who thought they weren't the composting type. Watching your kitchen scraps and yard trimmings transform into rich, nutritious fertilizer for your garden is a thrill!
What's wrong with stuffing your kitchen scraps down the disposal, you ask?
It's not really wrong; just wasteful (and hard on some plumbing). There is so much energy in organic waste like vegetable scraps, and composting so easily harnesses that energy and directs it back into the ecosystem, via your garden. Rather than putting synthetic chemical fertilizers on your lawn and garden, why not use the organic materials you've already got?
