The Pretty way to Compost your Kitchen Waste

crock-tomatoIf you have ever composted you will know that it is not the most glamorous of pastimes but things are about to change thanks to Lakeland.

Composting is something that most gardeners feel strongly about and regularly dispose of their gardening waste in a compost bin or pile throughout the year but you don’t have to be a gardener to compost.

Composting is a great way to recycle kitchen scraps that would normally be thrown away with the normal household waste. You can, of course, put your scraps in bowl or bag and transfer them to your compost heap or green bin but the prettier way is to use one of these Compost Crocks from Lakeland.

Compost Crock - Green ApplieYou can choose from fruit and vegetable shapes; Strawberry, Green Apple or Tomato or the ceramic crocks in White or Floral pattern.

All crocks have an activated carbon filter inside the lid which neutralises odours for up to 4 months; replacement filters are avilable. There are also compostable bags available which can be placed inside the crocks making it easier to keep them clean. The bags are completely biodegradeable and can be thrown on the compost heap where they will break down within 90 days.
