Composting is a great way to reuse your table scraps, eggshells, coffee grounds and vegetable peels. It also provides a rich source of nutrients for your soil.
It’s a great way to add natural fertilizer to your organic garden.
However, dashing out to the backyard compost bin every time you have a few bits of new material is a chore. Keeping this rotting food in your kitchen, in a plastic pail, isn’t the best solution either. In addition to the odor, caused as this garbage beaks down, this may not be the healthiest practice.
That’s because the hazardous chemicals found in plastics can potentially leach into your compost, which you use to enrich your vegetable garden. Also, plastic filled with decaying food matter is not an appetizing sight.
Stainless Steel Compost Crocks
One solution is to employ a smaller temporary compost storage pail. Ideally, this should be made from non-toxic stainless stell.
The Epica Stainless Steel Compost Bin is designed to be an attractive addition to your kitchen. It will also hold one gallon of compost material. A charcoal liner that fits inside the lid prevents odors from escaping. This compost pail is 11-inches high, so it should fit nicely by your sink, or elsewhere in your kitchen.
