When food scraps go to landfill they don’t decompose as nature intended. Starved of oxygen they break down anaerobically, producing methane gas - which is 30 times worse than carbon dioxide as a greenhouse gas. As if that wasn’t enough, this process also produces leachates which toxify our soils and water.
According to the World Bank Kiwi’s produce over 3.6 kg of waste per person per day - this puts us in the top 10 most wasteful countries on the planet. Businesses are the second largest contributors of waste (behind households), and food waste makes up to 50% of the average kiwi bin - so it’s a great place for businesses to make an impact!

How it works
Once you’re set up, we do the rest! This product-as-a-service model is consistent with the circular economy approach. We guarantee the success of the worm population and the life of the worm farm itself. We’ve put together 5 simple steps to help you get the most out of your worm farm.
By charging a small amount per worm farm, our solution is dynamic and modular - expanding or contracting to allow for company culture to adapt, as well as seasonal changes and other variables. To ensure flexibility the minimum commitment period is only 3-months, and there is no cancellation fee.
The one-off setup fee includes setting up the bins, going over systems and working with management and/or staff on how to get the most out of the service. We provide all the information and how-to resources for the office.
We use the best bin on the market, the Hungry Bin. It is rodent free, super tidy and looks very similar to other wheelie bins. All it needs is a safe place in the shade to transform your waste into soil!
If required, a member of our team can visit your business and provide a free consultation on how worms can work for your workplace.
