Compost-Off Videos: Your Faves, Put to the Test!

See more great videos like these on the Gaiam YouTube Channel [1]!

In the summer of 2009, we asked our friends on Facebook [2] and Twitter [3] to tell us which composters [4] they think we should carry in Gaiam’s spring 2010 catalog. We took the top eight suggestions and let the community vote on them. The two finalists [5] were then compared in an ongoing video series called the Compost-Off, each of which is shared below.

After an extensive five-week composting [6] test we concluded that the Bio-Orb would be better situated for dry climates because it keeps the compost moist, and the Earthmaker would be better situated for wet climates because it doesn’t hold too much water. The Bio-Orb would be more fun to use as long as you don’t mind getting messy rolling it around, while the Earthmaker was more sturdy and would fit nicely into a corner somewhere in your garden.
