Once the organic waste has been converted into compost this is packed into buckets and provided to our sourcing partners, Spud Sisters.

The Watch my Waste online calculator provides a picture of how the emissions from food waste compare to everyday activities such as driving a car or using electricity. Our composter on an annual basis is saving the equivalent of 3.63 years of electricity usage for a household or the equivalent or 128 petrol tanks.
