Our vision is epic

We want to enable 20,000 more people to compost by 2020. This will divert over 10k tonnes of waste from landfill, and produce 400+ tonnes of fresh food per year.

Food waste management, food accessibility, and soil degradation are all mammoth problems globally, and they demand mass scale proactiveness and really effective systems and solutions. 

Effective composting is one of the keys to solving these problems. Composting can be an incredibly powerful process to transform organic waste into fertile soil to grow nutrient dense food. Until now the methods have been mostly haphazard and labor intensive or of industrial scale.

The effectiveness of the Subpod in creating a waste transformed to food growing ecosystem proves that a simple, easy-to-use system, working with nature can help solve these problems right in your own space.

The food waste problem


More than 50% of landfill waste globally is organic food waste, which could be composted to create new fertile soil.

5 million+

In Australia, over 5 million tonnes of food ends up as landfill. That’s enough to fill 9,000 Olympic sized swimming pools!

More than 14% (1 in 7) of the global population  go hungry on a daily basis, and 12% of the population are undernourished.

The circular economy

Many of our current systems for food waste management are linear - we take and consume, and then dispose of the 'waste'. These systems are broken and must be replaced with closed-loop, circular and sustainable systems.

Why Compost?

Divert Waste

For every 20k people composting, we can divert over 10k tonnes of organic waste from landfill each year, instead producing 400+ tonnes of fresh food

Rebuild Soil

Soil is the life source of our food and plants. When we compost we're feeding and rebuilding the soil - improving its quality, nutrient levels and fertility.

Grow Food

With healthy, nutrient rich soil, which is being constantly fed, we can grow fresh produce all year round, in almost every climatic region globally.
