Compost On A Small Scale.

I long for the days where I'll have enough space to properly compost my food waste. But, until then, I can find certainly find room

Compost On A Small Scale.
for the Green Cone.

Solarcone's Green Cone is an enclosed system - a "four-part injected molded unit" -that helps release the nutrients from organic products back into the groundsoil. "The Green Cone reduces food waste to its natural components of water, carbon dioxide and a small residue. The solar-heated garden unit safely eliminates all cooked and uncooked food waste, including meat, fish, bones, dairy products, vegetables and fruit...The Green Cone system is beneficial to the environment. By using it, you can help conserve our precious landfill space and reduce the use of garbage truck fuel. Most importantly, you'll conserve our earth's precious natural resources, by decreasing the workload of large-scale treatment plants."


Use of the Green Cone helps:

  • Reduce your household waste by 20% or more.
  • Dispose of food waste immediately.
  • Keep your garbage cans clean and odor-free.
  • Keep remaining household waste clean and ready for recycling.

At $160, it seems a little steep, but as it may be the only option for folks with super-small yard space, it very well may be worth it.

I like the design.

If you're looking for a cheaper, but less visually appealing solution, you can spend about 9$ on a couple 32 gallon trash cans and drill a ton of holes in it.

I've used these two trash cans for about 2 years composting all my non-animal food scraps, newspapers, cardboard, weeds and haven't had to empty it yet. It's amazing how much the food breaks down.

Plus, i never have to purchase potting soil for my house plants, I have a constant supply of nurtrient rich soil.
