Kitchen Compost Bins and Bags
Composting is a great environmentally friendly thing to do from the comfort of your own home. Putting food waste into a kitchen compost bin reduces the waste you send to landfill, plus if you make your own compost in your garden, it’s a wonderful way to look after your garden too.
It’s win, win. But is storing all that food waste in your kitchen or on your kitchen surfaces really all that hygienic? Well, yes it is.
Kitchen compost bins don’t have to be unsightly and smelly. Our range of small compost bins and caddies can sit happily on your worktop, where not only will they look smart, their vented designs and replaceable filters mean they’ll reduce odours too. And if worktop space is at a premium, they can be tucked conveniently away in a cupboard.
With brands like Joseph Joseph and Rotho represented, you can rest assured you’re getting style and practicality in equal measure (and matching recycling bins are available too, if you want a themed look to your recycling).
Featuring carry handles to take them to your compost heap, these conveniently sized food waste bins can be used with compostable caddy bags to make emptying and cleaning them even easier.
Why should you turn your food waste into compost?
By putting your food waste into a food waste caddy, you can effectively store it up until it’s ready to go on the compost heap. But why should you turn your food waste into compost?
As well as reducing the amount of waste being sent to landfill, creating compost in your garden enriches your soil, helping to retain moisture and suppress plant diseases and pests. It also reduces the need to use chemical fertilisers in your garden as it encourages the production of good bacteria and fungi that break down organic matter to create humus, which is a rich nutrient-filled material.
And with our range of compost bins and kitchen food waste bins, you’ve got a simple solution to transport your unwanted food to the compost heap.
Choose a kitchen food waste caddy from Joseph Joseph or OXO Good Grips
Joseph Joseph craft stylish and practical home and kitchen accessories, and their food waste caddies are no exception. First off, they’re great-looking and will be right at home with any kitchen décor. But secondly, they offer those clever little design touches that you’ll just love.
We’re talking odour filters to keep any unwanted smells at bay, wide top lids that make it easy to scrape kitchen food waste in, and removable tops so you can tip the waste onto your compost heap with ease.
OXO Good Grips also know a thing or two about developing unique and helpful kitchen products. And their Easy-Clean Compost Bin ticks all the boxes when it comes to a food recycling bin. As soon as the kitchen food waste bin is full, the sturdy handle makes it easy to transport any waste outside to your compost pile. And the contoured bottom of the food caddy bin and the fully removable flip-up lid (you just need to slide to detach it) mean it’s simple to empty. The smooth interior walls and rounded corners also mean it’s super-simple to wipe clean afterwards. It is called the Easy-Clean after all!
