Our Inspiration
Compost deserved a new story.

One of nature’s most astonishing processes, the black gold we call compost has been undervalued for too long.

Compost as the regenerating, probiotic, solution for our depleted land, could play a major role in rebalancing the world’s carbon cycle. Turning polluting waste streams into a valuable resource is a win-win proposition, an elegant solution to many of our modern day problems.

The Compost Story wants to spread this hopeful message!
