Somerville, MA (PRWEB) April 23, 2014
The Grommet, an online marketplace and product launch platform for innovative and undiscovered products, has officially launched The Compost Shredder by Ecotonix just in time for Earth Day. The Compost Shredder is a greener, cleaner way to compost food scraps and was the winner in the “Ready for Market” category at The Grommet’s 2014 Product Pitch Competition, a live event hosted at Fenway Park on March 20th, 2014.
The Compost Shredder, created by Denver based entrepreneur and maker, Gail Loos, is a self contained countertop food shredder with stainless steel blades to slice food scraps into small, shredded bits making it easier, faster and more environmentally friendly to compost. It also contains an odor neutralizing element, requires no electricity and is made in the U.S.A.
Gail Loos, the maker behind this invention said the inspiration came after a life-long love of gardening and over 10 years at attempting to compost without success. “Finally, I found the magic formula for success: shredding food scraps and yard trimmings to the ideal size for the pile or tumbler” says Loos in her recent post about her journey to launch on Boston.com’s Buy Differently blog. In addition to her launch on The Grommet, Loos was awarded with a suite of prizes including promotion on Boston.com and a $1,000 PPC Marketing Campaign.
“Launching the Ecotonix Compost Shredder on The Grommet's launch platform is a fantastic opportunity. The Product Pitch event was only weeks ago and now our earth-friendly compost shredder is available for all to purchase with the help of The Grommet and their influential audience” said Ecotonix founder, Gail Loos.
“I am proud to see the Ecotonix Compost Shredder launch today as I knew this eco-friendly product would create strong engagement with our audience. I have enjoyed watching the progression to launch since our Product Pitch Competition in March.”
The Ecotonix Compost Shredder is available for purchase on http://www.thegrommet.com starting at $109.95 plus shipping and handling. For more information on the event, the finalists, the panelists and the winning team, visit The Grommet’s Hub Page.
