Earth Tub Composter Project

Earth Tub Composters are small on-site composting systems that can be used to recycle food waste from school lunch programs or smaller businesses into compost. This reduces garbage volume and costs while providing an education on recycling for students. Compost produced can be used in landscaping or sold to employees and student families.  While the Earth Tub no longer made, check out the similar ♣ Earth Cube which is also from Green Mountain Technologies.
