right place + right time
Most of us want to do the right thing when it comes to recycling and composting, but our busy lives can get in the way. It’s easier to go with what’s more convenient — which is usually not great for the sustainability of the planet. Most homes have a trash can in the kitchen, recycling bin in the garage, and compost bin (if there is one!) under the sink. This is inconvenient and tends to make people go for the easiest (read laziest) option – tossing everything into the trash can. At simplehuman, we solved this issue by integrating all three things nicely into one place! Our dual compartment step recycler has a recycling bucket right next to the trash compartment. With trash and recycling under the same lid, it’s a breeze to sort. No more trips to the garage!
We also recently launched a compost caddy that docks neatly onto the side of our trash cans, making composting simple and easy. Now, during a typical after-dinner clean-up, you can toss trash, recycling, AND compostable food scraps all at the same time in one convenient place! You can even remove the caddy from the magnetic dock and place it on the countertop during meal prep so you can throw food scraps away as you cut and chop. Many customers have expressed their excitement to us about how these products play an essential part in increasing their recycling and composting at home. We are just as excited to hear how seamlessly this solution is working for them so they can enjoy a more sustainable, simplehuman lifestyle.
