This Lomi home food composter does it all in the comfort of your home.
You’ve probably been cooking more than ever at home this past year due to the pandemic. As much as you are cooking, you have so many food scraps that go into the trash bag and result in bad odor in your apartment or house. Trash day can’t come soon enough each week!
Lomi, a countertop home food composter, was designed by a group of engineers and materials scientists who wanted to solve this garbage problem and help people be free from the stress of throwing away smelly, leaky, food waste.
Lomi spent more than three years coming up with the best solution to solve the garbage problem and turn the waste into nutrient-rich compost. They launched a crowd-funding campaign on Indiegogo and have raised over $6 million to date – 12,686% of their original $50,000 goal! Turns out, a lot of people – over 17,000 backers at least – are into this product. So we want to share a bit more with you, too!
Lomi turns waste into compost using heat, abrasion, and oxygen. Unlike other food composters, Lomi can compost biodegradable products like bioplastics, papers, and compostable packages. So, if you ever get those paper bags or bioplastic utensils from delivery, don’t just throw them in the trash bin; instead, toss them into your Lomi.
One of the unique features of the Lomi home food composter is that it can compost waste in just four hours. Lomi’s materials scientist, Daanvir, said, “Lomi speeds up the breakdown of organic waste into smaller fragments – similar to how earthworms break down and mix plant tissue into soil, except Lomi does this without the smell and mess! The end result is a natural source of soil nutrients that increase the organic content of soil, helping boost plant growth and soil enrichment.”
All you need to do is simply throw in your food scraps into Lomi, close the lid, and push a button – easy as that! You don’t need to hold your breath, tie the garbage, put your slippers on, walk out the door, and dump it in the trash bin. Lomi will do its own magic, and as little as four hours after, the nutrient-rich composts are good to use for your garden.
Lomi can reduce up to 50% of the waste that you send to landfills every year. It also reduces the carbon footprint, which is known as greenhouse gas emissions, or carbon dioxide. Carbon footprints cause global warming, climate changes, and disrupt our delicate ecosystems. Lomi was invented to stop the harm we as humans do to the Earth.
You can select from three modes: express, eco, and bioplastic mode. Express mode composts waste in just a few hours and drastically reduces the volume of the waste. Eco mode provides perfect nutrient-rich composts that are ready to use in your garden. Bioplastic mode will break down certified compostable plastics and papers that you can also use for your garden.
Lomi is easy to clean, it’s energy-efficient, and it barely makes a sound. It’s safe to put the stainless-steel bucket in the dishwasher. On average, if you use Lomi twice a week, it uses less than 1/5th of the energy of an EnergyStar certified refrigerator. The sound of Lomi is between 40db to 50db, which is a sound between a refrigerator and bathroom exhaust fan.
Give Lomi a look and consider backing this product as part of your investment into making this word a cleaner, greener place to live.
