When it comes to gas for heating your home and cooking, you’re pretty much tied to the utility company. HomeBiogas is a new home biogas converter and digester Kickstarted by 677 backers who pledged nearly half a million dollars to bring the idea of a waste-reducing independent fuel supply into fruition. What’s more, perks included donations to areas in need of steady cooking and heating gas supplies, in order to help house and feed conflict and climate refugees. 

Check out the HomeBiogas 2.0 in action and decide if it’s time to compost while also cutting the gas line. Metaphorically speaking, of course. The unit sells for $520 and ships this coming spring, right in time for prime gardening season.
