Real compost stories with Subpod

Real compost stories with Subpod

Watch real stories of everyday people composting with Subpod

Our community is what makes us special. When one person composts it's a great thing, but a few thousand? That can change the world.

As of the 1st of October, 2020, 16,000 people are composting with Subpod – and that number climbs every day. That many Subpods can divert over 8000 tonnes of food waste from landfill every year, which would offset the carbon emissions equivalent to charging almost two billion smartphones!

We're sharing real stories from a few of those 16,000 beautiful strangers. They’re the real face of Subpod, making a real difference.

Jenny from San Diego, CA, USA

Jenny felt the sting from food waste during lockdown, like many others. She started looking for a way to compost after noticing how much food was wasted while cooking at home in quarantine.

“During quarantine, we started to cook a lot more, and we realised how much stuff we were just throwing out. I heard about Subpod, and thought I’d give it a try – I’ve never done anything like this at all!”

For a first time composter, it’s going great. Jenny has a beautiful garden growing and her compost worms look healthy and happy. Watch the video below to hear her honest Subpod review. Thanks, Jenny!

Michael from Adelaide, Australia

Michael has an absolutely stunning garden at his home in Adelaide. As a gardener, you can never have too much compost, and he likes to use a variety of systems. It doesn't take an expert to see that his plants are loving the Subpod in their garden bed!

"As you can see the Calendula, which are planted just around the Subpod, are absolutely loving it."

Subpod is an Australian company, and we love supporting fellow Aussies where we can. Check out Michaels' garden here.

Larissa from San Diego, California 

No one should have to choose between having a beautiful home and doing beautiful things for the planet. Larissa's grandparents passed down a love of composting – and thanks to Subpod, she's sharing the same thing with her own daughter.

"I grew up composting as a child with my grandparents, and it was always very important for me to compost – but in an urban setting, it's difficult. Most Americans, like us, want to use our yards for something beautiful and not necessarily for something functional. Subpod was the perfect solution for us! Our daughter loves it, these are her pet worms."

We're so happy you found the perfect solution with Subpod, Larissa.

Dee from Connecticut, New England

Kids birthdays are fun, but they can be messy. Dee has found a great way to cut down on cleaning without creating unnecessary waste from her children's parties.

“We had a birthday party for my son, and what I really love is that we were able to use these compostable plates as carbon for my Subpod.”

There are so many things we can do to reduce our waste – but we don't always think of them. Great job on going green for your son's birthday, Dee!

Ali from Cleveland, Ohio

Ali loves the time she spends outside teaching her young daughter about composting (and showing her the wriggly compost worms). She feels like Subpod can remove a lot of the barriers that get in the way of when you’re trying to learn to compost.

“Owning a Subpod really does take any of the fear out of composting.”

Composting and gardening are such great ways to get outside and spend quality time with your loved ones. Thank you for sharing your story with us, Ali.
