I think I am developing a tiny addiction to Kickstarter.
Last week I backed The Greenlid – a Toronto-based green startup.
The Greenlid is a two piece green bin composed of a biodegradable, mess-free compost container and a reusable, dishwasher-safe lid. The compostable container can withstand wet organic waste and contains minerals that will enrich the soil once decomposed. Replacement containers will retail for about a dollar a piece.
I see this product becoming a hit in cities like Toronto where the condo population is growing. Most newly-built condominium towers have a combined garbage and organic waste chute; meaning little effort is required to divert organic waste from landfills. The Greenlid will only add to the convenience factor.
