Subpod for Schools

When sent to landfill, food waste doesn’t harmlessly break down. It rots and releases methane – a harmful greenhouse gas 25x more potent than carbon dioxide. That’s bad news for the environment. A school with 300 pupils can create 34kg/84lbs of waste a week – just from classroom snack breaks. That’s not including recess or lunch! Compost your students food waste and help cut climate change from the curriculum.

How Subpod Works

Compost worms and microbes live inside Subpod and turn all the materials you feed them into rich compost.
Subpod also acts as the ‘growth hub’ for your garden. Over time, nutrients from the compost will feed your garden soil, building soil fertility allowing you to grow nutrient-dense food at home with ease.
