Composting Food Waste at Home – Feed Your Potted Plants!

I’ve had my eye on one of these NatureMills since moving into a townhome and giving up my compost (worm) bin that I had tucked next to the side of my old house. Then the City of Seattle announced a home food waste collection service, that they would take away my food waste and compost (and then sell it back to me as Cedar Grove Compost). So I held off on getting one of these.

But today I received an email from them, that they have made some improvements to their design, which makes me want one again, so I can feed all of my potted plants!!

Here’s what NatureMill has to say:


We’ve listened to our customers. We’ve studied the reviews. We went back to the drawing board and made bold changes to satisfy just about everyone. Please join us in welcoming our 2010 “XE Series” of automatic composters:
* stronger motor to prevent jams
* more powerful filter
* new Energy Save mode
* dozens of other refinements

All of these improvements come without any price increase. The new XE Series is available now, in the Plus and PRO configurations as before.
For details see: .

Also: FREE shipping this month!
To promote our newest products, shipping is free all month, while supplies last.
(UPS ground shipping only within the USA.)

Offer valid until October 1, 2009. Some restrictions may apply. Void where prohibited. Not valid in conjunction with other promotions.


I can’t really afford to get one of these at the moment, and since I have food waste collection service from the city at least I don’t feel guilty for letting the squash rot in my refrigerator drawer! But it is definitely at the top of my list the next time I have some extra money!
