It's hard to come up with an ongoing, hands-on group project as engaging and rewarding as composting. Classroom composting is a great hands-on way to connect children with our human role as stewards of this amazing planet. Lots of potential to bring gardening, food preparation, and science together.
To make it practical, children need an orderly way to move scraps from plates to the outdoor bin. With a sturdy handle and snap-lock lid that opens and closes easily, this plastic carrier is lightweight and manageable for older children when full.
It can sit on a counter or floor, or mount in a cabinet (mounting hardware not included). Comes with a replaceable charcoal filter that minimizes odors. Carrier is dishwasher safe. Holds 2 gallons; 9" square base x 12" high.
Set of 3 Replacement Filters (SC532) sold separately.
