The Stylish Urban Composter

February 22nd, 2012

Cleverly designed for the kitchen, the new Urban Composter is an airtight bucket which allows you to throw all types of food scraps including coffee grounds, dead flowers, meat, fish, dairy products, egg shells, fruits, vegetables and more.

It looks good, so won’t ruin the look of a modern kitchen and there are 4 colour lids to choose from, and best thing about it? It’s designed and made in Australia!

Below is a quick run down on how the Urban Composter works (taken from the website):

Throw

Food scraps cut into small pieces are placed into the Urban Composter. All types of food scraps can be composted including: Meat, Fish, Vegies, Fruit, Dairy, Coffee, Wilted Flowers (no bones or excessive liquids).

Spray

A Compost Accelerator is sprayed on, assisting in the break down and fermentation of the scraps. The composting process is anaerobic which means that the food scraps don’t rot or smell while breaking down.

Drain

As the scraps ferment, liquids are released. This juice saturated in good bacteria and nutrients can be drained off every few days, as an excellent fertiliser for plants, or can be flushed down drains as it promotes septic systems.

Mix with soil

The scraps will break down in approx 4-8 weeks. Once the bucket is full, and all the liquid drained, the pulp can be added to soil. It can be: buried in the garden, in a pot or planter of soil, added to outdoor compost or to worm farms.
