  • What is the HotBin made of?

    As I understood the Hotbin is made of material very sensitive to UV-radiation. So how long does the Hotbin "live"? Is there some surface-treatment of the material? Thank you!

    I second this - could you please explain what material the hotbin is made of and is there any chance of the material leeching into the compost. I know the material is like the white stuff that you get on packaging for things like TV's (the stuff that breaks easily and can look like snow). I believe this is a form of plastic, so I'm worried about the plastic leeching into the compost and then eventually into the food.

      I have the same question, but more from the perspective of recyclability / environmental-friendliness of a HotBin purchase over another approach - how does it compare? Unfortunately these questions don't seem to be attracting many answers!
