BEST NEW COMPOST BIN 2012 TWO AWARDS FOR HOTBIN COMPOSTING
THE HOTBIN WINS TWO AWARDS ON FIRST BIRTHDAY
HOTBIN composting is celebrating its first Birthday with two awards under its belt. Just after being awarded Northumberland Green Business 2012 they were told that Grow Your Own magazine readers had voted the HOTBIN ‘Best New Product 2012’.
“To receive these two awards just a year after launching the HOTBIN makes us feel really special,” says Tony Callaghan, Managing Director. “It certainly has been a busy year helping HOTBIN users to break with some of the traditional composting dos and don’ts. It is great to know that so many people are supporting us and enjoying a more sustainable future.”
“I invented the HOTBIN as I got frustrated with an overflowing compost bin and failed to find an alternative that could compost all food waste satisfactorily together with garden waste. These awards show the ups and downs were worth it and I appreciate everyone’s acknowledgement and support for HOTBIN,” Callaghan continues.
In a recent HOTBIN survey users suggest having the ability to hot compost food waste at home has a huge impact on a more sustainable future. 90% of users agreed that it was important to have the ability to compost cooked food waste; 61.5% of users are now adding all food waste to their HOTBIN and 72.9% are now diverting a lot or nearly everything from landfill.
And as one user said “The HOTBIN quickly converts waste into good stuff for the garden whilst taking me a step further towards the good life.”
From a standing start HOTBIN will have sold nearly 2000 units by year end and has been told on good authority (the biggest retailer of compost bins) that it could easily be the best selling specialty compost bin. It has already appeared on The Radio2 Simon Mayo show, the Alan Titchmarsh Show and was declared one of the best three composting bins by The Telegraph.
The HOTBIN is made from a robust insulated engineering material to help defy Newton’s law of cooling. The unique design makes hot composting manageable by the average family in their own back yard. As the HOTBIN truly reduces heat loss you can achieve temperatures between 40-60C allowing you to recycle all food waste alongside your garden waste all year round.
The HOTBIN can help millions of existing home composters to compost ALL food waste without the inherent problems of odour, vermin and flies. Traditionally only 40% of domestic food waste goes into the compost bin, the HOTBIN can increase that to 100%, reducing the amount sent to landfill.
