Here’s a list of some Indian composting kits and products which promise to better your gardening experience:

How to choose the right product?

There are a large number of products available both online and offline that help with composting. Here are some tips from composting experts Shreepad Hardas and Vani Murthy to pick the best one among them:

1. Intention of composting

Composting can be done just to get effectively rid of the kitchen waste or to nurture the plants at home. If the former is your intention, go for small scale composting that requires less investment. Otherwise, spend more time and money on the process so that you get a good yield from the garden.

2. Available space

Remember to factor in space while composting. Choose a smaller composter with less capacity in case of congested spaces for gardening.

3. Available resources

If you are living in a space where plenty of dry leaves are available, there is no need to purchase extra cocopeat as they serve the same purpose. Unused plastic bins in the house can be equipped for composting by making small changes. Similarly, think of employing available resources before purchasing alternatives.

4. Quantity of waste

Based on the number of members in the household, try to get an idea of how much quantity of kitchen waste is generated per day. If the waste collected is 500 gm or lesser, go for a small composter and vice versa.
