Composting is not for everybody. In my experience I have come to learn that you either like it or you don’t, there is no in between. Composting your kitchen and yard waste reduces garbage and you also get nutrient rich fertilizer for your garden and that too without spending money.
Composting can be done in two ways. You can either compost your waste in open air or in a bin, turning it over with the help of a pitch fork or you can use a composting tumbler. Composting tumblers are a neat way of composting waste. It is also effective in keeping away malodor as well as rodents and other insects.
As composting becomes more and more popular among commercial gardeners as well as homeowners, a number of different brands have emerged in the market.
The designs and structures of composting tumblers have also taken a giant leap from being a simple barrel to high quality recycled plastic bins in different shapes and sizes to suit the needs of different people.
Among numerous manufacturers making composting tumblers, Mantis has come to stand tall due to its sturdy designs, solid body and great customer service.
