AUSTIN’S BIKE-POWERED COMPOST COMPANY
Compost Pedallers is a 100% bike-powered compost recycling program in Austin, TX that collects compostables from homes and businesses and pedals them directly to nearby urban farms and community gardens to grow more local food.
Our mission is to build a more vibrant Austin community by reducing waste, strengthening our local food system, and re-connecting neighbors to each other and the places that they live through more sustainable practices. All without burning a single drop of fossil fuel!
MORE FOOD | LESS WASTE | ZERO FOSSIL FUELS
WE USE BIKES TO TURN WASTE INTO FOOD
We use tricycles to shuttle organics from homes and businesses to nearby gardens. Biking keeps resources local, creates loca jobs, eliminates fossil fuel emissions, and maximizes efficiency. To learn more about our trikes, download our fact sheet here.
APPLE CORE VALUES
So much more than a buzz word, sustainability is at the core of everything we do.
To us, sustainability means responsible management of our resource base to ensure a high quality of life for all future generations. Our goal is to build a closed-loop food system that is capable of sustaining itself, and the people it supports, indefinitely. This requires a fundamental shift in thinking, one that takes its cues from nature and focuses on building highly connected and adaptable decentralized networks. Nature does not make waste, so we don’t either.
