Compost - Why, How, What

WHY COMPOST OUR PACKAGING?

A. Saving the world will be your greatest success. 

"At some point, we must achieve a sustainable energy economy or we will run out of fossil fuels to burn and civilisation will collapse. Given that we must get off fossil fuels anyway and that virtually all scientists agree that dramatically increasing atmospheric and oceanic carbon levels are insane, the faster we achieve sustainability, the better." Quote - Elon Musk 

So, why compost? Global NPK depletion. The faster we mine it, the sooner we arrive at the point when there’s none left. Composting is the foundation to solving many of our major global problems. 

To grow the majority of food found in supermarkets, our industrial food system relies upon NPK (nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium) derived from non-renewable fossil fuels.

Farming with refined fertiliser is like a global methamphetamine addiction. 
Forever chasing the dragon of high yielding crops, yet the body deteriorates and cannot hold itself together. Unfortunately, the community must deal with the long-term results. 

Topsoil is being swept and washed away 10 to 40 times faster than it is being replenished. Healthy bio diverse soil naturally maintains moisture properly and this reduces erosion. 

We have to start breaking our dependence on these non-renewable resources to become sustainable over the long term. 


If we do not compost...?

When your food scraps are mixed with other rubbish in the landfill we lose all that valuable nutrient and energy forever. This leads to organic waste rotting down anaerobically (without oxygen) and it gives off Methane gas (CH4). Methane is a significant Greenhouse gas, being 25 times more potent at trapping heat in the atmosphere than Carbon Dioxide (CO2)

Starting a compost at home or at work is an easy proactive step we can all do to start solving our insanity. 

"The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result" - Quote Albert Einstein

Simply cut up with scissors and pop in the compost :) 

SO WHAT IS COMPOST?

A. Alchemy, The Creation Of Black Gold -  
The Grand Elixir of Immortality.

Our goal of composting is to capture free energy to nourish plants that yield lush nutrients to fuel high-performing, happy people making a positive impact.

The composting process involves four main components: organic matter, moisture, oxygen, and bacteria. Organic matter includes plant materials and some animal manures.

Composts are a living and breathing home to a collective of microorganisms alchemising biodegradable trash into a product rich in minerals ideal for the garden. As a by-product of the process composts generates its own heat up to 70ºC.

Our vision is to transform consumer behaviour from completely unsustainable to rejuvenating our global backyard.
