Frequently Asked Questions

How is Green Cycler different from other compost crocks?

Unlike typical crocks, Green Cycler shreds your food scraps to the ideal size for composting. The resulting shreds are stored in an oxygen-rich environment that retards unhealthy bacterial growth while promoting healthy decomposition.

Do the blades need to be re-sharpened?

Hardened stainless-steel shredders grind through rinds, peels and cores. Pre-composted morsels are ideally sized for your composter or worm bin.The blades are not sharp and never need to be re-sharpened. They were engineered to safely chew through food scraps from apple cores to squash tops.

How long can I store scraps in the Green Cycler?

You can store shredded scraps inside your Green Cycler for up to a week. Most people only empty their EcoDrawer when it’s full to the brim.


How does the filter work and how often does it need to be replaced?

The filter is packed with natural odor-absorbing zeolite–a volcanic rock that’s 1,500 more effective than activated charcoal. Zeolite’s pores trap moisture and odors inside and releases them when exposed to the sun. You can effectively recharge your filter over and over for years.

191ac1b6-b91c-4cf9-add0-a7cd71263bce_jpg_w240What’s the benefit of shredding?

Grinding, chopping or puncturing organic material before composting greatly reduces decomposition time. When chopped to the ideal size, microbes and other composting elements can more quickly consume the material. Your Green Cycler creates hundreds of nicks and cuts in food scraps which weakens the cellulose fibers and magnifies the surface area that microbes can attack thus increasing compost speed by at least 10 times.

Why compost?

Compost is health food for your soil. Studies have shown that compost used as a mulch, or mixed with the top one-inch layer of soil, can help prevent many plant diseases. Particles of cured compost contain natural antibiotics produced by beneficial bacteria. Compost naturally conditions your soil to make it more hospitable to plant roots, helps plants to absorb soil-borne nutrients, and reduces the likelihood that your garden will be plagued by pests and disease.

I don’t have time or space for composting, how can I use my food scraps?1596a599-0a4f-40ef-a60d-713186dc5425_jpg_w240

Simply pour your food scraps in a shallow trench in your yard and cover with an inch or two of soil. Worms and other composting helpers will do all the hard work and your soil will benefit from the addition of organic material and increased microbial activity.

What should I NOT put through my Green Cycler?

Quite simply, anything you can eat, can be shredded with your Green Cycler.

What’s the big deal with food scraps?

Food scraps and food-soiled paper are some of the most-plentiful resources on earth. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Americans generated a staggering 36 million tons of food waste in 2011 and 97% of that waste went straight to a landfill. Food scraps, when rotting in airless landfill conditions, are a potent source of hazardous methane gas and a serious space concern. Down the garbage disposal, they create grave water-quality issues. In your garden, they boost healthy soils, plant growth and vigor. By composting, you can convert almost 50% of your trash to super-healthy plant food.

Can I add citrus to my compost or garden?

When shredded, and mixed with other food scraps, citrus is perfectly safe for your compost or garden. Use caution when adding large quantities of citrus to an enclosed worm bin.

Can I use compost for my indoor garden?

Yes, compost tea is an excellent nutrient source. Further, compost is one of the few proven methods of reducing mites and other pest that plague indoor gardens.
