Shred kitchen scraps, make compost faster

The Green Cycler shreds food scraps to an ideal size for making compost, which could speed up the process for making soil-enriching “black gold” for your garden by as much as 10 times, according to manufacturer Ecotonix.

Making compost can cut down on food waste going to landfills and into a garbage disposal.

As you crank the Green Cycler’s handle in forward and reverse motions, the shredded scraps drop into a storage drawer beneath the blades. Suction cups hold the unit in place as it works. The shredder cartridge can be removed for cleaning.

Prices for the Green Cycler range from $99.99 to $149.99. It is available online at Amazon.com, CompostMania.com, Smarthome.com and GreenCycler.com. – Karen Sullivan
