How does it work?
The Green Cone food waste digester looks kind of like a home composter but is much more. It takes all types of food waste – meat, dairy, bones, vegetables and even animal feces – it basically allows you to take everything from the kitchen table and dump it directly in.
You don’t need to turn it, or empty it more than once every few years.
Using solar heat in combination with macro bacterial activity, it breaks the waste down aerobically into nutrient rich water that is absorbed into the soil, and a very small amount of residue. As an enclosed system, it doesn’t attract vermin or any other animals. It’s easy to install, the hardest thing is digging a shallow (2′) hole. All it needs are decent drainage and sunlight. A Green Cone can accommodate all of the food waste of an average family of four or five. It’s a solution that can deal with the waste where it’s generated, and that’s just the best possible option.
