Sustainable Lifestyle

This product helps promote a more sustainable lifestyle. Whether it encourages re-use and the movement away from disposable products, or it promotes sustainable actions like recycling and composting, this product can help you lower your environmental footprint.

B Corp

The B Lab is a third-party, non-profit organization that certifies companies as socially and environmentally responsible. B Corps are businesses that go above and beyond traditional business models and aim to create positive change in the world through their practices. These companies must meet rigorous transparency and accountablity standards, while doing what is best for people and the environment.

Recycled Plastic

Recycled plastic utilizes salvaged post-industrial plastic scraps and post-consumer products such as water bottles and other plastic containers, and transforms them into new products. The containers are sorted, crushed, and then heated to form resins, which are liquid plastics that can harden into new shapes. These resins can be molded and used to create anything from carpet to outdoor furniture. Recycling plastic lowers the amount of petroleum extracted and the production of greenhouse gasses associated with first-time plastic production. Plus, by using these existing materials, we’re benefiting from the original energy and resources spent to create them in the first place, while diverting waste from the landfill.

Recycled Stainless Steel

Recycled stainless steel utilizes steel salvaged from used products and construction materials, as well as scraps left over from the production of other items. It is durable and long lasting, and can be recycled with scrap metal collections at the end of any stainless steel product’s life. Steel can be infinitely recycled and maintains its quality throughout each recycling process. This eliminates the extraction of natural resources required to produce new steel, while providing a new life for materials that could otherwise end up in the landfill.

Composting doesn't have to be hard- all it takes is the push of a button with the Fresh Air Full Circle Compost Bin. It's simple, clean, and has minimal odor thanks to its patented design that minimizes airflow and maximizes decomposition. With just the push of a button the bin opens, making it easy to empty. Plus, every order includes 5 compostable bags so you can get your compost on as soon as it arrives!

  1. Question

    vedaadelle

    I live in a small apartment and have little composting knowledge, but I would like to learn. What would I do with the bags when they are full? Im not sure there is a local spot for me to take them and I do not have an outdoor compost either due to lack of space. Any knowledge/ suggestions you can send my way?

      Hi there! It is so wonderful that you’re thinking about joining the compost movement. If your town or city does not offer industrial composting and a home compost is out of the question, we always recommend seeking out a local farm to see if they would like your food waste! This is a rather small compost bin, so it may suit you to introduce an even larger container (a large bucket can work!) that you store outside and use to transport a week’s worth of food waste to a compost destination. For even more compost tips, check out our Composting 101 blog!

    Does this composter need to be used with a bag? Are there holes on the bottom for airflow?

    Great Looking Bin!

    lauragaring1989 (verified owner)

    Well, I do love this bin but, unfortunately I have to return it because I purchased it for my mom not for myself and she wants a bigger one. I guess she thought it looked bigger than it is. lol Either way, I got the black and white one and it looks so sleek and elegant for it to just be a compost bin. I spoke with Grace at EarthHero already about it so I’ll be mailing it back next week. If I had any counter space in my apartment I would be keeping it for sure though. I really liked that this bin included the biodegradable bags to try out too. I think that would help with smells. We’ve had a ceramic compost bin with the charcoal filter in the past and my mom couldn’t stand the smells. She’s really sensitive to onions and I think it was just too much for her. Anyways if I ever move I will probably order this for myself. Thanks!

    Solved my smelly compost problem!!

    camryn417 (verified owner)

    I live in a small apartment with a small freezer, so once I started cooking more often I ran out of space to freeze my compost and started to use a bathroom trash can to store my compost. After maybe five days the entire apartment would smell musty, and there would be a bunch of goo at the bottom of the bag when I brought it to my community center. This composting bin kept my kitchen smelling un-stinky for over a week!! And there was hardly any goo!! And the design is GREAT!! It’s so easy to clean!! $30 for a compost bin might seem like a lot but I am confident that I will NEVER have to buy another one again.

    Love!!!

    aliirwin92 (verified owner)

    I can’t brag about this product enough! I eat a plant based diet and I am all about composting for my garden. I used to have to take out my scarps after every meal and not with the amazing compostable bags I can take it out every couple days. I have yet to get a bad smell coming from it , which is MAJOR! I recommend this product to anyone who eats fruits or veggies!!!

  7. Question

    Jane W

    If I started to compost with a large container and kept food stuff in there for the 2-5 weeks, could I just then
    dump it into the yard? My husband tried composting years ago, and does not want to do it again. I have mobility issues, and cannot create a space in the yard. But, we do have many holes that our dogs have dug, and I thought about putting the material in those holes. Would that work?

      Hi Jane! Great question. Composting your leftovers and any other organic matter could do wonders for your yard. The key here will be to ensure that the compost pile you start is properly aerated and is creating enough heat to generate adequate decomposition. Leftover food will break down more quickly and turn into a nutrient-rich soil conditioner when it is turned over a few times a month and when other organic matter is added to it (leaves, twigs, grass clippings, etc.). This blog will help with other composting tips and tricks, too!

    Looking to start composting. But living in an apartment. What would you recommend we should we do with the compost bags when they’re full? Our apartment only offers garbage and recycle bin? Thanks!

      Hey Maura! Composting is a wonderful practice. Diverting food waste from landfills has quite an impact when it comes to reducing harmful greenhouse gas emissions. If you’re unable to have a backyard compost pile, there are still options for you! Find out if your city or town has a commercial composting facility. Sometimes they offer curbside pick-ups for a small fee or allow you to drop your compost off. If something like this doesn’t exist yet, another option is to contact a local farm. Just be sure to find out exactly what they’re looking for (do they only want organic foods? Do they except meat products, etc.). For more information about home composting, check out our Composting 101 Blog!

  9. Question

    Michaela

    Hello, I was wanting to start vermicomposting, would this bin be suitable for that?

    • EarthHero

      Admin EarthHero

      Michaela, what a cool idea! Due to its design, this compost bin probably isn’t ideal for vermicomposting. As you may know, worms help speed up the rate of decomposition. The “fresh air” vents in this bin work to promote airflow and slow down decomposition (which helps with the smell, too!). A good idea might be to fill this bin with food waste and then transfer the contents to a larger, more permanent home for those worm friends. 🙂

    • Beth Evarts

      Are the bags completely free of plastic? I see they are vegetable resin based but that doesn’t mean no plastic. I’m not convinced using the bags are 100% organic since I’m going to put them in a home compost to use for garden soil. Thx!

      Hi Beth! Great question! Not all bioplastics are created equal and some do contain plastic byproducts. While they may eventually biodegrade, tiny bits of plastic may remain that may harm the environment! Luckily, these bags by Full Circle are certified biodegradable and ASTM D6400 certified, which means they will break down in industrial compost facilities and won’t leave any nasties behind. Since these aren’t labeled as okay for backyard composts, we recommend checking out this option by BioBag! Made from non-GMO crops, they’re perfect for tossing into home compost bins. 🙂

      Hi Cheryl, great question! This compost bin has a circulatory system that requires vents along the bottom rim, so bags are necessary to keep anything from falling through. If you’re looking for bin that doesn’t require bags, this one might do the trick for you: https://earthhero.com/products/home/natural-home-brands-recycled-stainless-steel-compost-bin-1-8-gallon
