Composting is a great way to generate fresh food for your garden and keep scraps out of the landfill, but if you don’t have a yard or access to green waste pickup services, it can feel impossible to dispose of scraps sustainably. Fortunately, Vitamix has launched a gadget to help.
The new Vitamix FoodCycler FC-50 is a countertop device that can be filled with fruit and vegetable scraps. Once full, you let it churn for several hours and you’re left with a substance that looks like something between soil and extra-large fish flakes.
The produced material is high in nutrients and perfect for nourishing your plants. Plus, it takes a fraction of the time to produce viable compost when compared to a traditional backyard pile.
This nifty product is about the size of a beach bucket and makes the perfect addition for households looking to nourish their indoor plants or for anyone that doesn’t have the outdoor space for a full compost pile. It’s not cheap, but if you’re looking for a solution for healthier plants and greener cooking, look no further!
