Compost Wizard Jr.
Composting is a great way to recycle all those nasty leftovers, kitchen scraps, and garden clippings that you find around the yard into rich top soil that also doubles as mulch. That's a double whammy of earth-friendly,trash-reducing action. The Compost Wizard Jr. is a 7 cubic foot tumbling composter. At that size, it can sit discretely out of the way yet it's big enough to handle your all of your family's compostable food waste, like vegetable scraps, coffee grounds, and eggshells. It comes in two pieces, already FULLY ASSEMBLED! There's no waiting to compost, you can start the second the composter arrives.
Thinking of using one of those crank composters? Why bother when the handles on the Compost Wizard Jr. provide excellent grip for turning and won't break apart. . It turns easily because of the ingenious wheeled base the compost bin sits on. It's simple and it works. And if you want to roll the bin around the yard, it can be taken right off the base. Now you can roll compost from your prime composting spot all the way to your garden.
Another great advantage to this composting unit is the 12" twist off lid. This lid keeps your compost safely closed off from rodents and other animal pest. The lid also keeps out all but the smallest bugs (Bugs are awesome for compost. We like bugs.). Each end of the compost bin has plenty of aeration holes which provide much needed airflow for the compost batch. You can even drill more if you live in areas that don't get as much moving air or get really hot.
The compost bin is made with 100% recycled polyethylene. This isn't your typical plastic either; Good Idea's PE is BPA free and FDA approved for contact with edibles. That means there aren't harmful levels of plastic additives into your compost, so you can feel free to use it for your kids or in your vegetable garden.
This composter only comes in black. as it is the most efficient at absorbing the sun's heat, keeping your compost at a nice hot temperature of 100-150 degrees F (38-66 C). Is these temperatures, the only thing you have to do is rotate the drum once a week. If your batch of materials is balanced properly and conditions are good, you can see compost as quickly as 2-4 weeks!

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 were 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.
*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.
