Blue Earth Compost (BEC) participated in our 2017 Impact Accelerator cohort, and since then reSET has watched them establish and grow, developing a loyal customer base in Connecticut and are now poised to build a larger service area and expand their offerings. BEC is ahead of the paradigm shift that is necessary to address climate change and the major climate impacts created by food waste, and reduce the production of methane gas by food in our waste streams. More municipalities are concerned about rising trash hauling fees and reduced landfill and incinerator space, and BEC is positioned to be a leader in helping to address these concerns through their easy-to-use compost system. Blue Earth Compost’s curbside pickup service mitigates the friction that can be created by adding another trash solution to customers’ daily lives, and enables composting for urban, suburban, corporate and institutional clients. We at reSET are a corporate customer ourselves, and we find that BEC is responsive with excellent customer service, the price is right, and they’ve studied and addressed the pain points that would limit customer adoption. They have built strategic alignments with municipalities locally and their expansion plan is a logical next step. They will be vertically integrating their business so they can have more control of their market and create soil products with a larger reach. We’re excited to see their growth plans that turn a cost (tip fees) into a revenue source from new soil products. At reSET, we believe in business as a force for good and are impressed with the systematic approach that BEC has taken to measuring and articulating impact, and they’ve committed to this aspect of their business by registering as a Certified B Corp. In addition, BEC’s workforce development policies combined with their business model that addresses inherent climate impacts demonstrates that they are thinking about sustainability to the core.

Our Team

At heart, we are environmentalists disguised as business people. We are driven to make our communities more sustainable by regenerating our soil. We believe that if we have healthy soil, it's a big step towards a healthy planet for all to share equitably.

Who We Are

Blue Earth Compost is tackling the enormous issue of food ending up in landfills and incinerators.

50% of material put at the curb is compostable and studies say that 40% of the food that we grow in the United States is wasted! If food waste were a country it would be the third largest emitter of greenhouse gases in the world. Disgusting!

Soil is the Solution!

When food is composted it reconnects the carbon with our soils and thus the carbon cycle. The carbon cycle is the delicate balance between carbon in the ground and in the air. We're experiencing climate change because too much carbon is in the atmosphere. When we compost food scraps we sequester carbon into the soil and enrich it microbially and nutritionally.

What We Do

Blue Earth Compost makes composting accessible to homes, businesses, and municipalities by offering collection services. We help our clients to separate the material out from the trash stream by giving them right-sized containers and helpful guidance. 

And we're pretty darn good at it, too! We've received local and national recognition for our work. We're the largest food scrap collection company in CT and we're really just getting started.

Right now, we compost about 4,000 tons of food scraps per year, but in Connecticut alone about 540,000 tons are generated! With your help, we can increase our impact greatly and expand more into neighboring states.

Here's Our Plan

About 50% of food waste occurs at home and the other half occurs at
restaurants, schools, grocery stores and other commercial locations. Our
plan is to provide solutions for customers big and small by scaling up
what we do well and expanding into new opportunities for growth.

What Your Investment Will Do

Your investment helps us to build more capacity to divert food scraps away from landfills and incinerators and towards a better use. We'll purchase collection vehicles, hire drivers, and purchase equipment that helps us to create nutrient rich compost!

Every $100,000 of investment equals about 1,000 tons of food scraps composted per year.
