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.


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 that same love with her 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.
