Having a handy composting system at your home is not always possible, so for those who are usually forced to throw their leftovers into the garbage bin, the Re-Can offers a more resourceful solution.

If you don't have a composter, you may not have much of a yard, so perhaps you enjoy the company of a collection of potted plants? They may be sheltered from the nourishing natural sunlight and rain, but they can acquire invaluable nutrients from the supper you make for yourself.

Any scraps of fruits and vegetables you may have after a meal is over, the Re-Can is the perfect receptacle to give them a second life. Once you add a bit of water and get those blender blades churning, this Electrolux invention by Kenneth Van Steenberge will produce the perfect food for your flowers that you can pour right into the planter.
