Let's send less to the landfill! Convert your own organic waste into compost to enrich the soil in your backyard.
Made of biodegradable, dishwasher safe, and durable bamboo fiber.
- Sustainable - Uses excess raw materials of fast-growing, eco-friendly bamboo that can be harvested frequently without damaging the soil or landscape.
- Durable - Extremely strong, moisture resistant, heat tolerant, and dishwasher safe. Made to sustain everyday use and tough enough to be enjoyed for years.
- Repurposed - Plastics machines are retooled to mold a new responsible material into beautiful, durable, eco-chic plates, bowls, trays, and kitchen tools.
- Biodegradable - When you are ready to move on, the material breaks down cleanly, returning to the earth, leaving very little environmental impact.
DIMENSIONS: 8” x 6.25” x 9”
MATERIAL: Primarily made from repurposed bamboo fibers. The process begins by gathering excess materials from bamboo flooring and furniture manufacturers and grinding it into a fine powder. A nontoxic resin consisting of cornstarch and PET (the recyclable plastic contained in water bottles) is then added to insure resilience, moldability, and dishwasher safety.
Bamboozle has scored the highest marks for food safety, biodegradability, and dishwasher resilience. The products are also submitted to Proposition 65 testing in California to confirm that no toxic chemicals or materials are included and is BPA Free.
USE: In order to compost successfully, you will need three components:
- Brown material - this is made up of items like broken twigs, dead leaves, and dry tree branches.
- Green material - this includes things like grass clippings, fruit & vegetable scraps, and shredded newspaper.
- Water - maintaining the right amount of moisture will help turn compost into nutrient rich material for your garden.
WHAT TO COMPOST:
- Fruits + Veggies
- Egg Shells
- Coffee Grounds + Filters
- Shredded Newspapers
- Yard/Garden Trimmings
- Dryer + Vacuum Cleaner Lint
- Hair and/or pet fur

- Diseased or insect-ridden plants - Diseases or insects might survive and be transferred back to other plants
- Fats, grease, lard, or oils* - Creates odor problems and attract pests such as rodents and flies
Meat or fish bones and scraps* - This can cause odor problems and attract pests such as rodents and flies
- Pet wastes (e.g., dog or cat feces, soiled cat litter)* - Might contain parasites, bacteria, germs, pathogens, and viruses harmful to humans
- Black walnut tree leaves or twigs - Releases substances that might be harmful to plants
- Coal or charcoal ash - Might contain substances harmful to plants
- Yard trimmings treated with chemical pesticides - Might kill organisms that are beneficial to composting
* Check with your local composting or recycling coordinator to see if these organics are accepted by your community curbside or drop-off composting program.
FOR COMPOSTING INDOORS:
- Select an appropriate container for composting - like the Bamboozle Counter-top Composter.
- Remember to maintain your pile and keep track of what you put in it.
- A properly managed compost bin will not attract pests or rodents and will not smell bad.
- Keep track of the moisture levels and run occasional tests to measure the acidity of the compost material.
- Once the compost bin is full, move it outside, especially during warmer weather to help speed up the process.
- Your compost should be ready in two to five weeks.
- Don't forget the charcoal filters ad replace them every 2 months.
END OF LIFE: Dispose of as Biodegradable waste.
