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.
