Essentially, all life depends upon the soil… There can be no life without soil and no soil without life; they have evolved together.

Reducing emissions

Our products are created from food and green waste that historically has been destined for landfill. We want to change that… Why? Once in landfill, food waste breaks down and emits greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide and methane.
