You might be wondering, “Can one truly love a composting bin?” When it comes to these smartly designed picks the answer is absolutely yes. These four bins will help you cut down on organic waste, and give your garden a boost.
1) The Countertop Composter
Home cooks will love this affordable, portable solution to composting organic kitchen waste. Epica’s countertop composter has an airtight lid and an activated charcoal filter to control odors, and the one-gallon size holds several days of coffee grounds, eggshells, and fruit peels. The stainless steel bin isn’t just stylish—it’s also rust resistant and easy to clean. At under $25, this sleek compost bin should be in every kitchen.
2) The Backyard Tumbler
Envirocycle dubbed their 35-gallon backyard compost bin “the most beautiful composter in the world,” and the cylindrical tumbler is aptly named. The composter comes fully assembled, and is built to withstand the toughest weather conditions. The smart design includes built in rollers, top loading, and removable plugs in the base that allow compost tea to drain out. For those with smaller yards, Envirocycle offers a 17-gallon drum.
3) The Worm Farm
The first thing that comes to mind when you hear the words “worm” or “composter” is probably not, “That sounds pretty.” For a tool that does an ugly job, this indoor worm farm from UrbAlive has a stunning modern design. The composter comes in grey and green with wooden legs, is easy to assemble, and blocks odor.
4) The More Bang for Your Buck Bin
There’s nothing fancy about the Redmon Green Culture 65-gallon compost bin, but it has the three qualities you need most: it’s affordable, it’s durable, and it works. Users praised the easy assembly, high compost volume, and speed of decomposition. At $50.99, this no-nonsense compost bin is a steal.
