Be Reborn / compost and water

Be Reborn
Be Reborn

Be Reborn is capable of putting unwanted compost to better use. Compost entering the apparatus from a passage is exposed to microbes passing through holes in the base. The microbes accelerate decomposition and utilize composting to produce organic fertilizer used to generate plant growth. In addition, carbon dioxide created during decomposition is converted into oxygen via plant photosynthesis, purifying the air, and thus achieving the goal of creating a sustainable environment.
