Sleek Indoor Decomposers

The Compto Composter Requires No Yard and Won't Cramp Your Style

— October 13, 2012 — Eco
The market needs more products like the Compto Composter to enable more people to discard their organic scraps in an environmentally friendly way. One of the major benefits of this hi-tech receptacle system is that you can carry out the entire process indoors.

Now don't be turned off by the idea of rotting food sitting stagnant in your kitchen because this gadget promises to take care of it. Cris Orozco's invention incorporates a strong seal within its lid, but it also maintains the ideal conditions inside.

The Compto Composter cleverly manages your discarded morsels of fruit peels and uneaten leftovers. Temperature and moisture are adjusted appropriately and the entire decomposing process can be completed in 21 days. With two lots on the go at once, the appliance will be regularly producing nutrient-rich pellets to feed your plants.

Industry Implications

3. Environmental Services - As the trend towards sustainable living continues, there is a growing need for companies to provide environmentally friendly waste management services such as composting, creating opportunities for environmental services providers to disrupt traditional waste management methods.
