It is estimated that in an average household, material suitable for composting accounts for over 40% of all waste. Keeping compost is one of the pillars of ecological life. It allows you to produce less waste and produce valuable fertilizer for organic plants. The project was created for everyday use in small habitations and it aims to change habits. Thanks to the modularity, it takes up little space and allows you to process a large amount of waste. Composter construction guarantees good oxygenation of the compost, and the carbon filter protects against an odour.
