I follow Mayor Sam Adams on Twitter, which is a nearly impossible task since he tweets at a rate that would cause the thumbs of normal people to seize up and fall off. Regardless, during a recent Sunday Parkways, His Honor tweeted a photo of a uniquely Portland household invention that is being made right here in town: the Kitchen Compost Caddy.
Why uniquely Portland? Because in late 2011, Portland initiated a residential composting program that distributed household composting buckets to all Portland households. It was the arrival of a composting bucket that inspired Jeff Evans, to create the Kitchen Compost Caddy.
NN: Whatâ€™s the story behind the creation of the Kitchen Compost Caddy?
JE: When our little brown composting bucket arrived on the doorstep, my first thoughts were: â€œI don’t want this sitting on my kitchen countertop. My space is limited and this bucket is just not attractive.â€
Once we began to use the bucket, we became frustrated with the height of the bucket on the countertop when scraping our food scraps into it; the repetitive opening and closing of the lid; the associated banging noise made each time we had to dispose of our food scraps; and the foul smells coming from the bucket as the food scraps sat decomposing at room temperature.
