Kitchen Compost Collector takes green award
The Full Circle Fresh Air Odor-Free Kitchen Compost Collector took home the Green House Design Award as part of the Housewares Design Awards contest.
The Fresh Air Odor-Free Kitchen Compost Collector turns kitchen scraps into organic matter to enrich the soil. Its design features a sealed container that allows oxygen to easily flow through kitchen waste. As the air passes through the organic kitchen waste, allowing for aerobic breakdown, food decomposes more slowly, and stays drier during the composting process. The result is less mess, less odor, and no fruit flies.
Four other green products were also recognized as category finalists: Ekobrew from Eko Brands LLC, JetMaxx from Electrolux Home Care Products Inc., Personal Cooler from PackIt LLC and Fizz Home Soda Maker from SodaStream USA Inc.
The product submission and judging process for the Housewares Design Awards program is managed by the International Housewares Association. The awards program was presented Jan. 31 in New York City by HomeWorld Business, with sponsorship by The Gourmet Housewares Show at NYIGF, Gourmet Insider magazine and Whitford Corp.
