The inspiration behind creating my own compost kitchen bin was purely environmental. This became a life style change. I have been recycling of my kitchen waste for years. I’d rather see my compost in my garden rather than in a landfill.
Did you know that every year Americans generate around 14 million tons of food waste? If we all saved our potatoes, oranges, apple and onion peels and egg shells, coffee grinds and old loose tea, we could not only add nutrient organic material to our gardens, but we could also help the environment.
I used a few recycled materials to create this bin. I highly encourage you to use as many recycled materials as possible. To date, I have not purchase even a bag of soil in over 2 years.
Mixing compost materials with soil will create a mineral rich environment.
