We honestly didn't know compost bins could be so pretty. This simple and discreet wooden container sits on a kitchen counter to remind you to set aside banana peels, coffee grounds and egg shells, for transfer into municipal green bins or your own garden compost. The box is crafted of salvaged walnut with a stainless steel pan and lid. It keeps messy trash separate, helps us stay environmental responsible, and spruces up our countertop -- what more could we want?
Due to the unique nature of each piece of wood, your compost bin will show varied coloring and grain. The piece is not stained, just oiled.
The interior is easily removable and lightweight for emptying and washing, either by hand or in the dishwasher.
This is a simple and gorgeous compost bin. We used to use a sealable plastic container but over time it started retaining odors. Having the stainless steel interior for this one makes it really easy to wash by hand or using the dishwasher.
