This article will tell you if it’s time to upgrade your indoor compost game, because everyone needs to be recycling their food waste in 2020. DID YOU KNOW that methane gas is 30X worse for the environment than the CO2 from our cars? Food waste (which generates methane) comprises 20% of all landfill volume. Even if you don’t have the space for a traditional compost pile or compost alternatives, you can still cut your food waste completely with an electric composter.

It's time to buy an electric composter when:

1. You live in an apartment

If you live in an apartment or condo, composting will be pretty difficult. Limited indoor space and zero green space might mean that there is really only one option for you to compost in an apartment.

2. You do not have time to turn a compost pile.

Unturned compost piles are stinky, nasty messes that attracts pests. Cold compost piles also take up to a year and a half to break down. Electric composters turn your pile for you, so all you have to do is push a button.

3. You eat meat.

You cannot add meat of any kind to a traditional compost pile. Rotting meat will generate dangerous pathogens and will absolutely attract unwanted pests.

4. You eat dairy.

Same deal as meat!

5. You eat junk food / have leftovers from a restaurant.

Processed foods with oils, grease and other icky stuff will not break down well in compost piles. Electric composters, on the other hand, have no issue turning that stuff into fertilizer.

6. You have little kids.
