BACKGROUND

Designed and made in New Zealand, hungry bin is a fast and convenient way to compost your food scraps. The hungry bin is a high efficiency composting system designed to make the disposal of food waste clean, simple and easy. The outputs of the product are very high quality natural fertilisers. The system has applications across a range of situations from domestic households to large industrial waste streams.

HOW SUSTAINABLE INNOVATION IS AN INTEGRAL PART OF THE ORGANISATION

In most Western cities food waste makes up almost half of the waste stream. Food waste is expensive to collect, transport and dispose of. Even using a waste disposal unit requires a lot of water, and creates a burden on the sewerage system. When organic waste breaks down in a landfill, it generates methane, a powerful greenhouse gas. Once it is buried, the nutrients contained in food scraps are lost to the environment, and cannot be reused.

One of the best solutions is to compost organic waste on-site, reducing handling and transport costs, and preventing valuable nutrients from being lost. Hungry bin is one of the most efficient and easiest ways to compost.
