Ecobarrel / Compost Barrel


「Ecobarrel」is a new type of recycle compost barrel. We can put organic trash into the opening at the top just like leaves, coffee grounds, wastepaper, Eggshell, tea bags, fruit core in our daily life. By the design with spiral body, the organic matter will slide slowly into the bottom with time and achieve the purpose of mix.
In the slide and mix processes, the organic matter is decomposed to become the organic compost by the creatures-「red wigglers.」
Finally, we can take the organic compost out from the opening at the bottom. The organic compost is full of nutrients. We can use it to plant more trees and make our environment sustainable.
