The Green Cone ensures the almost total breakdown of all food waste into it’s natural components of water and carbon dioxide, thus producing minimal residue. The double walled solar cone creates a heat trap of circulating air to encourage the growth of harmless bacteria and also insulates the waste during the winter. With the digestion basket below ground level there are no smells and the worms and natural soil organisms can migrate in and out of the basket.

The Green Johanna is more than a traditional composter. Through innovative design it can handle both garden and food waste, producing an excellent quality compost.

The unit is completely rodent proof and the compost can be easily accessed through the two sliding doors.



Green Johanna was developed in Sweden to provide a simple, easy to use compost system to safely compost all degradable kitchen waste all year round!

The base-plate has rodent proof holes that let both worms and air enter the container.

Sliding doors make it easy to rake out the finished compost when it is ready. The stirring stick makes this a simple task.

The round shape ensures that there will be no ”cold corners”. The cone shape

ensures the compost does not stick to the sides and instead sinks down towards the
