Originally developed in the UK for breaking down and composting food waste, this in-ground, solar digester uses heat from the sun to generate high internal temperatures for faster microbial activity.
The air chamber created by the dual cones allows for passive convection currents to continually move fresh air through the system, providing the necessary oxygen to maintain aerobic conditions, which helps to mitigate foul odors.
Protected, underground basket is difficult for hungry critters or curious pets to access - but easy to empty when filled with finished compost.
The system provides sufficient capacity to digest 1.5-2 lbs of food waste per day (scraps from 3-5 adults).
The Green Cone may also be used to effectively break down solid pet poop and during emergency situations, human solid waste.

PLEASE NOTE: The top bar on the outer green cone piece is for stability during the manufacturing process. Some have been pre-removed at the factory, while others still have them attached. If yours comes with one, you may remove it or keep it attached - it does not affect the performance either way.
