We’ve used our 20+ years of commercial composting experience to make the Earth Cube the simplest, easiest, fastest, lowest-cost system for community-based composting of food waste. The Earth Cube is ideal for small scale operations that are passionate about being green. Through closed-loop composting you can keep vital food nutrients in your local neighborhoods and gardens. Why pay to have nutrients hauled away and then purchased again as soil amendment?
The Earth Cube is a completely enclosed composting system that:
Before adding any food scraps to the Earth Cube, it is important to add AT LEAST 12” of coarse bulking agent (coarse wood chips, chopped weeds, leaves, etc.) to the floor of the vessel. This provides a nice, fluffy bed for the compost and prevents food waste from sticking to the floor where it can become anaerobic and stinky. It also allows cool air to enter underneath the compost pile. This encourages a convective thermal loop that increases heating and speeds composting.

The Earth Cube can process up to 50 pounds/day.
