Every year Americans landfill or incinerate around 50 million tons of potentially compostable food waste—enough to fully load a line of 18-wheeler trucks from New York City to Los Angeles 10 times. To make composting food waste convenient and appealing to consumers, Sepura Home has transformed the conventional garbage disposal unit into an all-in-one home composting system. Unlike a conventional garbage disposal that sends food waste right into the sewage system, Sepura separates food waste from drain water and diverts it into a collection bin under the sink. This allows food waste to be easily composted and prevents the buildup of odor and fruit flies that typically result from tabletop compost bins.
