A fine example of sustainable urban lifestyle!

Making compost is not only for people with a garden. Even if you live in a city, in a small apartment, something can be done. Biovessel was developed for city dwellers to turn their food waste into compost in a stylish tabletop composter. If you're imagining your apartment becoming a bad-smelling compost pit, that is not going to happen - developers at Taipei-based Bionicraft assure you, you won't smell a thing.

The so-called indoor ecosystem uses microbes and earthworms to break down food waste into fertile, nutrient-rich soil, much like it is done in nature. To make it work, it takes a mix of approximately 7 Liters of humus and sawdust soil, containing 500–600g of composting worms. Humus can be enriched with leafy greens, fruits, vegetables, grass, tea bags and even black and white newspaper (however, do avoid citrus, fats, oils, salts, meats, sugar and all processed or seasoned food). When you're finsihed, your Biovessel will help decompose about 500 grams to 1 kilogram of food waste every week.

If you wish to support the project and get a Biovessel of your own, head over to Kickstarter.
