If you wince every time you toss a banana peel into the trash and think, I really need to compost, let your guilt evaporate (or decompose). The Green Cone offers a simple, tidy alternative to the homemade heap, and accelerates the decomposition process through thermal heat (created by interior and exterior cones). All household food waste can be dumped into the cone—which is partially buried in your yard—to be eventually released back into the soil as water, carbon dioxide, and a small amount of residue. It’s like a trashcan for your yard, only you know where your waste is going.
Solarcone, Inc. is a family-owned environmental company, dedicated to helping Americans help our Earth, one household at a time. We distribute the Green Cone System and associated products and services to government agencies, private companies, universities, and individual customers throughout the United States.
The Green Cone System was patented in the USA and Canada in 1989. That same year, Solarcone was established as a corporation with the exclusive rights to distribute the Green Cone in the United States. Since then, Solarcone's continued mission has been to advance the grassroots recycling movement while supporting small business enterprise.
The company was founded by the Falconer family, and is to this day is a 100% women-owned business, with three generations of Falconers sharing its ownership.
