A full-service food waste system

specialising in natural composting

 

We work with our communities to tackle the issue of food waste from emissions free collection, to distribution.

All without the use of fossil fuels or mains water.

 

We harness the power of naturally occurring beneficial microbes to produce our living compost

Join our compost scheme
to save emissions and get living compost in return.

Emissions free food waste collections, paying you back with living compost.

Collecting approx. 80,000 litres of food waste per year saving approx. 37 tonnes of co2e emissions.

Landfill emissions minus composting emissions.

This weighs about the same as 6 elephants!

Soil

Imagine a rich forest floor,continually replenished by fallen trees, dry leaves, and bright moss. New roots reach through each layer, drawing nutrients into new growth high above.

We use the principles of nature to transform your waste into soil.

Who we are

Compost Club is a social enterprise company with a purpose beyond profit, creating a community of composters in Brighton, Hove, Lewes and surrounding areas. Diverting local food waste from landfill or incineration is very important to us as well as cycling these nutrients to create a compost full of the microorganisms which give life to the soil. This process reduces the carbon emissions from food waste drastically and boost biodiversity. We can use the product to reduce compost miles, sequester carbon and green our local landscapes from people's gardens, allotments and even bigger growing projects like community gardens, market gardens, farms and estates.

What makes our living compost special

Channel the natural benefits of our living compost to regenerate soil.

The images below show some of the key microbes which make nutrients available in a healthy soil and they all exist in our compost. They are sadly lacking in commercially produced compost and this is what sets us apart!

Did you know that many of the nutrients plants need are locked up in the soil?

These guys can access them and make them plant available.

Sustainability Commitment

We are a carbon negative company.

 

We send nothing to landfill and instead we are committed to reducing food waste from others from reaching landfill.

We use no virgin plastics by reclaiming buckets for food waste collection, refilling our cleaning fluids and using plastic free packaging.

Our food waste collections are emissions free, owing to our electric van.

We offer a compost which is made from waste product and one which contains a diversity of beneficial microorganisms with a great potential to sequester carbon. This compost includes biochar.

Compost Club is proud to be joining Business Declares and the fast-growing network of businesses who acknowledge the Climate and Ecological Emergency. Reducing emissions from waste and improving soil health is central to our work where we put earth care, people care and fair share first. We are working towards a highly positive net carbon business model and look forward to continuing to share our journey, continuing to evolve and ensuring our voice is part of the collective, resounding call for change. We are certainly not claiming to be perfect, neither are we judging others, instead we are part of a coalition of the willing, looking to collaborate and accelerate action while continuing to highlight challenges and uncomfortable truths.
