James Wood has designed a sleek and contemporary compost bin designed for urban green thumbs. Vedge is a multi-level compost bin featuring slots for planting vegetables and herbs.

According to Wood, nearly one-third of all waste in landfills is organic. This waste that is clogging up landfills could be better used to grow vegetables in home. Vedge is designed to cut down on the amount of organic waste thrown in the trash. Although small and compact, the bin can hold up to 20 liters of organic waste. The top shelf of vedge is scooped and can be used to plant small vegetables, with the scooped-out shelves being the perfect size for small plants and herbs.
