New research exposes that almost half of the food waste in our rubbish bins could have been composted!
“The HOTBIN is remarkable and needs to be experienced to be believed. Like all the best ideas it is simple. How come no one thought of it before”.
Luckily Tony Callaghan did and the good news is 94% of all HOTBIN users are diverting more food waste than they did before. (April 2012 Customer Survey)
HOTBIN composting started trading last November in Morpeth. It has grown significantly and now retails online across the UK, has securred several significant retail partners and is working with some interesting community composting schemes.
Next week is Compost Awareness Week which “aims to encourage more people to realise the benefits of home composting and the great results that can be achieved by using peat-free composts containing recycled material.”
So if you are a keen gardener or interested in helping the planet as one of our customers recently put it; the HOTBIN "Looks smart & tidy, works well and is a very useful toy for gardeners and anyone interested in reducing their waste footprint.”
Described as a ‘Handsome Beast’ and rather stylish by Lisa Tarbuck on Radio2 the HOTBIN can help households reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill by transforming it into nutritious compost that won’t cost the earth. Recycling your waste is good news for the environment because it helps to cut down the amount of organic waste that is sent to landfill and its good news for your garden too.
“An excellent idea, I have enjoyed the process of composting since ordering my HOTBIN. It significantly reduces the amount of food and garden waste that we regularly threw away each week.”
The HOTBIN has been specifically designed to reverse overnight how much waste a household sends to landfill. Its clever design ensures all food waste including meat and fish, not just fruit and vegetable peelings can be composted efficiently with less odour and fewer flies in your own backyard.
Designed to help maximize what nature does naturally by bringing together the right conditions to make hot composting easy. The HOTBIN works as you can actively achieve temperatures between 40 -60C. These higher temperatures along with the effective aeration allows the HOTBIN to effortlessly reduce and recycle a wide variety of food and garden waste into great compost all year round. In fact at those temperatures you can expect to harvest a batch of beautiful ‘black gold’ every three months.
The HOTBIN has been independently tested by Garden Organic for ease of use, effectiveness and quality of compost produced, confirming that high temperatures can be maintained to provide sanitation of waste, including cooked food.
This is why the HOTBIN is a home composting system that recycles a whole lot more than potato peelings!
Just think how many of those lovely nutrients you will be returning back to the soil. You can even save water too as using compost can increase the ability of your garden to hold water.
“Brilliant! – How did I live without HOTBIN. My three composting bins have been reduced to one, reducing domestic waste and composting time.”
The HOTBIN is 200 lire hot composting bin made from a robust engineering material called expanded polypropylene bead that is also used on car bumpers. It has been chosen for its hardy and insulating properties. The HOTBIN is made in the UK, 100% recyclable and was invented in Morpeth.
In our recent customer survey more than 90% of users agreed that it was important to have the ability to compost cooked food waste; 61.5% of users are adding all food waste to their HOTBIN and 64.9% are now diverting a lot or nearly everything from Landfill.
