Go Waste-Free and Turn Your Food Scraps Into Fertilizer With This Stylish Container
If you've ever wondered how to correctly compost food, well . . . same. I'm constantly trying to be good about my recycling, but was never sure how to go waste-free when it comes to leftover food. On a recent visit to my parents house, I noticed they were putting all their leftover fruit peels and coffee filters in this weird bucket to compost and I thought, "There has to be a more stylish solution for this". Then I found the Living Composter ($199), and for the first time I was actually intrigued on how it all works. After telling my parents they needed it, it actually convinced me that going waste-free is better, too.
So, how does it work? All you have to do is fill it up with soil mix and a pack of worms (gross, I know, but it works) and then add leftover scraps. Scraps include everything from fruit and vegetable peelings to grain foods and tea bags. The worms can process over two pounds of food a week. All you have to do is wait, and then your soil is ready. There are other products like this out there, but not only are they not as stylish, but this one also has a no-odor design that'll make you forget it's even there. Keep reading to see how it works and why you need one.
How Does it Work?
Simply put food scraps into the container when you're done with them and wait.
Wait a Few Days
The worms will eat at least half of their own weight of scraps per day and the soil is ready normally within days.
You Can Now Fertilize
Fill up some of your plants with the new fresh soil.
