The pro knows. 

Carol has been an active composter for  years. She runs a compost operation for an entire eco conscious living complex in Los Angeles. She uses red wiggler worms to run this process 2x faster.

She explains that vermicomposting

isn't hard, it's just not sexy.

How can we bring this process inside?

It needs to be:

Intuitive.

Rewarding.

Scalable.

Clean.

By making composting more accessible in urban homes, we can get more value from the food we consume and create better habits.

Easy as 1,2,3. 

Green and brown scraps go in.

Worms travel up to fresh food.

New units added to make room.

Circular material reharvesting.

Sprout is designed to be disassembled and recycled. That means when you are done, just send it back. We will put this material right back into our product line.
