Innovation

Instead of creating garbage, use ‘’ the domestic Compost Machine”. It may be  located in your kitchen and is the size of a garbage can and discreet. You will  store your food waste and organic waste generated in your home, in a few days the waste deposited in this machine will be converted into compost which can be used in the gardens, theregy reconstructing the structure of the earth and returning to nature the nutrients lost due to the misuse of man towards nature. 

This innovation is based in the concern in the high levels of garbage in Colombia. In Colombia there is actually 12 million tons of garbage that reaches the landfills, which is causing a crisis and increasing the levels of danger. Therefore it is important to put recycling as a priority.

Compost Machine

Inspiration

We are inspired by a product that can be widely used in nature and to avoid increasing the levels of pollution generated by the garbage that is generated from our home.

"We thought about ¿How could we create a fertilizer for plants from our home? We chose the compost that is composed of organic waste (household waste, herbs.), and we generated a machine that could easily convert it."

It is shocking as the levels of garbage increase and we do not do anything to solve, they throw garbage in the open air allowing the growth of animals such as rats and insects that transmit diseases to the population. There is no awareness of the damage we are doing to the environment and to the people who live near the garbage fillings.
