The Compost Wizard Dueling Tumbler combines the most popular composter features to create a compact tumbler that does it all. The dual chamber design lets you compost continuously - one chamber can be left to finish for 2-4 weeks while the the other chamber still collects scraps. This eliminates compost down-times, batch planning, and waste storage. The Dueling Tumbler also has a compost tea collecting base which collects nutrient rich composting liquid to spread on your garden with a watering can or drip system. As with all featured Good Ideas composters, the Dueling Tumbler is manufactured using recycled food-grade polyethylene (PE) in Lake City, Pennsylvania. This plastic is BPA free and FDA approved for contact with edibles, so you know that you aren't adding harmful levels of plastic additives to your family's yard or garden.
Setting up the composter is easy. It comes fully assembled, so simply place it in a sunny spot (or partial shaded in desert climates) and you're ready to start composting at home!

Good Ideas, Inc.
Good Ideas, Inc. focuses on selling high quality, sustainable and niche products. They seek out exciting new markets with high potential growth. Founded in 2001 by Greg Cronkhite, Good Ideas has steadily become one of the top composter and rain barrel companies in the US market.
All featured Good Ideas composters are made from 100% recycled polyethelene (LDPE or #1 in the recycling code). They are made in Lake City, PA - so we know they are produced by qualified staff under all federal and state environmental restrictions. Being made in the USA also carries an additional environmental benefit in that the carbon impact of shipping and distribution is much smaller than a composter made overseas!
Home composting drastically reduces the amount of GHGs produced by landfills, as well as our use of fossil fuels from transporting trash and producing fertilizers. We estimate that when a person composts all of their food and yard waste instead of sending it to a landfill, it will save up to 500 lbs of CO2 per year, or 2.5% of the average American’s carbon footprint. Compare that to the fact that growing, shipping, and preparing foods makes up an additional 13% of the US's carbon impact.
In addition to being made from recycled materials, these composters can also be recycled in most municipal recycling programs once they reach the end of their usable life - which should be 10-15 years.
ClimateStore loves this no-waste, no-fuss composter. We think that this is the easiest and most carbon friendly way of disposing of your trash!
*These estimates for carbon savings were derived from a number of sources. The EPA's EPA's WARM Model provides estimates of GHG avoidance from composting versus landfilling. The EPA's 2012 Municipal Waste Report provides estimates for non-recovered food and yard waste volumes in the US. The EPA also estimates the typical US carbon footprints and the required population data was available from the US Census Bureau.
