Compost your food waste in the Green Cone. By using thermal and aerobic decomposition aids as well as microbial breakdown methods the Green Cone facilitates healthy (contained and safe, controlled odor and contact from human/animal sources) food decomposition in the yard of any home. The Green Cone reduces the volume of waste that must be transported to area landfills. This saves transportation energy and saves limited space in local landfills. The Green Cone uses solar energy to heat the contents which should be placed in the Green Cone on a regular basis. This ensures the food is decomposed quickly and does not fester with slower decomposition in a more exposed environment (i.e. open air). With aid from your yard or garden soil the Green Cone can turn your old food into energy and sustenance for the greenery that surrounds you!

About the Author:
Doug is in perpetual motion and a self-proclaimed adventure junkie, that has had a longtime love affair with the great outdoors.
“I love being a part of the active world. The stuff that blows my hair back is adventure (all shapes and sizes), photography, mountaineering, Muay Thai, and seeing natural beauty in all its forms. The living earth is the framework on which I build my life and free time. My ideal trip would be BASE jumping at Sotano de Las Golandrinas in Mexico (closest I could come to skydiving through the jungle!). I work towards keeping it real, green, and healthy. ”
Doug is the co-founder of LiveOAK, although he says he didn’t know what a blog was until a couple months after he started.
