Home compostingis a great way to recycle yourfood waste, but it takes an age before you have something akin to usable fertiliser. A new gadget however, promises to turn your food into fertiliser, unbelievably, within 24 hours.
TheZera Food Recycleris fully automated and WiFi-controlled and works by dehydrating your food waste and applying heat to kick-start decomposition. Makers Whirlpool claim it can turn a week’s worth of food waste from an average US family (3.5kg) into fertiliser in 24 hours. The only sticking point currently is the price: $1119 per composting unit, unless you’re one of the first backers of the Indiegogo campaign, which launches in January, otherwise you can purchase it for £699.
