Turning Organic Waste to Compost
We are all ears if you can show us how to turn “trash” into something useful while benefiting the community and environment in some way. We had highlighted (B)Energy in the past that utilizes organic waste to provide households in rural regions with access to cooking biogas. Working along the same lines, Daily Dump has pioneered a way of designing and building solutions that enable everyone to participate and keep their communities clean. The range of products they offer reflects their simple mission – “Harm Less”.
Their main product is a composting system that helps manage household/community organic waste and convert it to useful high-quality compost. The compost bins are attractive and made of terrracotta, a viable and readily available material. Local porters are hired to manufacture the bins and encouraged to sell them independently. They also offer flexible service plans to ensure that you compost at home, conveniently and hygienically. What is also interesting is they operate under the creative commons license, which means their concept/ product designs etc. are all free to replicate by anyone anywhere. The bottom line is to help people remain conscious of throwing sensibly and allow the next generation to be aware of a better practice of managing the earth’s resources.
A brilliant example of using simple technologies to come up with high-impact solutions in areas that need it the most. Because compost sells, could this be a good model to provide incentives to city dwellers to manage their organic waste?
