Norton, OH, Mar 16, 2021 /prREACH/ -- BelleMark has been hard at work designing the perfect bin to make composting in any space a possibility. Now, with its brand-new kitchen compost container, the brand ensures that people living in small spaces or without the availability of backyard areas can safely compost at home. Customers can feel good about keeping food scraps out of the landfill and making the earth a little cleaner.

"We have recently seen an increase in the demand for composting in smaller spaces," says spokesperson Ashley Koncz. "Rooftop, urban and community gardens are becoming more and more popular, along with local composting collection services. People are finding ways to be resourceful and environmentally responsible by avoiding waste in their garbage cans and, ultimately, the landfill."
One might think that organic material will decompose identically in a kitchen compost bin and the landfill. In fact, this isn't true. Landfills are anaerobic (low oxygen) environments, so when organic food waste is broken down in this environment, methane gas is produced. Methane gas is one of the biggest contributors to climate change and is about 28 times more impactful than carbon dioxide.
On the other hand, composting is an aerobic (high oxygen) process. Methane gases are not produced in an aerobic environment because methane-producing microbes are not active in the presence of oxygen. According to the sustainability and waste management organization TrashHero, "Organic material makes up somewhere between a quarter to a half of our total household waste, so composting will also massively reduce the amount of trash in our bins and the space taken up by landfills."
BelleMark believes that apartment dwellers are just as important to the composting world as home gardeners as they, too, can create effective yet compact compost bins. The company suggests the following ways to make a big impact on the environment with just a small kitchen space:
- Collect kitchen scraps and organic material in a quality countertop compost bin with a lid to control odors and eliminate pests.
- Check with the local refuse department to see if it has a curbside composting program.
- Collect food waste and drop it off at an urban composting center or community garden.
- Donate food scraps to friends, family and neighbors who have their own compost bins.
- Create an indoor worm composting bin.
