The Green Cycler From Ecotonix May Have Your Kids Fighting To Grind The Pre-Compost

Designed by gardener Gail Loos, the Green Cycler is a cool idea that could make pre-composting fun. It’s a hand-cranked composting aid that speeds up the process by grinding up your plant waste before you add it to your compost pile and I could definitely use one. The compost in my Sun-Mar drum composter looks like an un-fruit salad with intact apple cores, pineapple skins and orange peels that aren’t breaking down because they’re too big. With the Green Cycler, I have no doubt that my kids would grind our compostables down and they’d even fight to be the one doing the cranking.

As useful as the Green Cycler seems, I’m not ready to shell out $139 to get one. I think the only way I could justify the purchase of a Green Cycler is if I made it a Christmas gift and gave one to my kids. [Treehugger]
