Goodbye, garbagey smell. See ya later, fruit flies. Say hello to the Fresh Air compost collector. Unlike sealed compost containers, the Fresh Air allows oxygen to easily flow through your organic kitchen waste, allowing for aerobic breakdown. This means that food decomposes more slowly and stays drier during the composting process. The result? Less mess, less odor and no flies.

Includes 5 compostable bags

What's so great about composting? For starters, there really is nothing better for soil than compost. It not only loosens clay soils, but it helps sandy soils retain water. And best of all, it contains no petroleum-based compounds, as many commercial fertilizers do. Gardens that use compost produce much higher yields of healthy fruits, vegetables and flowers.

Plus, landfills across the United States are running out of space. In fact, according to a recent EPA estimate, almost a quarter of the garbage in this country is composed of food scraps and yard trimmings. Believe it or not, that's about 60 million tons every year. So if you're not composting yet, it's definitely time to start. What if I don't have a yard? Maybe you live in a city apartment or in a home without a yard. Our cities are getting more progressive every day, and it's more than likely that yours has a community composting center. Check out Earth911.com or the EPA for local resources in your area.

Here's a list of household items that can be composted:

 

  • Vegetables
  • Coffee grounds and filters
  • Tea and tea bags
  • Crushed eggshells (but not eggs)
  • Nutshells
  • Houseplants
  • Leaves
  • Cardboard rolls, cereal
  • Boxes, brown paper bags
  • Clean paper
  • Paper towels
  • Shredded newspaper
  • Fireplace ashes
  • Wood chips, sawdust,
  • Toothpicks, burnt matches
  • Grass clippings, yard trimmings
  • Hay and straw
Responsibly Made in China
