About the YukChuk Compost Bin Gordon Newman
Designer/Owner YukChuk, LLC
The YukChuk Compost Bin was inspired in 2011 while watching my daughter prepare and plant her first vegetable garden. What was intended to be a small veggie patch to provide truly ‘organic’ food for her children, turned out to be much larger, and is now accompanied by a chicken coup, three beehives, a greenhouse and a larger composter!
Discovering that 30% of the food produced for human consumption actually went to waste changed my mind set from inspired to driven to be a part of minimizing such waste and serve the ‘Greater Good’.
Several months of research revealed that there was a market need for a kitchen food waste container that was truly homemaker friendly, really did seal odors in and was robust. Putting the 40+ years of broad manufacturing experience to work, it still took over two years to satisfy my passion for excellence.
While everything can be improved upon, including the YukChuk®, our customer feedback clearly supports our claim to have reset the bar at a new Gold Standard high – suggesting that “upgrading” to a YukChuk is not a stretch.
Living in a ‘Time is of the Essence’ culture, ease-o-use was mission-critical to the design and resulted in a product that can be used single handedly in less than 20 seconds.
A YukChuk is not another me-too bucket with a lid. It is 100% designed for the busy homemaker who is active about leaving a healthy planet for our grandchildren – that was and always will be the goal of YukChuk, LLC.
