Food scraps are diverted from landfills and incinerators, out of the waste stream and into the earth
An active way to lower personal greenhouse gas emissions on a daily basis
Composted food scraps become a valuable resource for building healthy soils when separated from other ‘trash’.
By composting our food waste, we reduce our carbon footprint. Compost soil sequesters carbon, while food rotting in landfills releases methane
Composting returns unused nutrients from food scraps back into the soil for local farms to use, completing the food cycle and contributing to a healthy, local source of nutritious organic food. Contributing to the cycling of nutrients from our homes back to community farms fosters a healthy connection to locally-grown organic food.
Community composting encourages food independence & reduces local use of chemical fertilizers.
The North Shore Community Compost Movement is a weekly collection service for residential composting. You divert your food waste, we pick it up and turn it into soil for our local farms.
HERE'S HOW IT WORKS:
We’ll deliver you a compost bucket (or 2 with the "plus" plan) with a screw-top lid, some bokashi to kickstart the process & a welcome packet with educational information & instructions on what to do.
Fill your bucket up with your food scraps
(check out our LIST OF DO'S & DON'TS).
We’ll pick up the bucket & swap it out for a clean bin every Wednesday —NO SMELL, NO CLEANING, NO HASSLES.
Track your impact on the environment with personalized carbon offset reports at the end of the year.
Smile & feel good knowing that you’re giving something important back to this beautiful place we call home.
