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.

Some poisonous insects and traffic cones employ fluorescent orange to great effect as a not-so-subtle warning to keep clear. For the Offcut stool, however, the eye-popping color is an open invitation to have a seat.
