LINKING LARGE SUPERMARKETS WITH LOCAL COMPOSTING FACILITIES AND CAMPAIGN SHOPPERS TO DROP THEIR FW IN OUR COLLECTING POINTS IN CONJUNCTION WITH TH We started out producing compost by community collections in 2014 upgrading with Spacehive crowdfunding in 2017 and the generous grant by Eastend Homes of the basement of the Stockholm House block of flats on the St Georges estate, where we still operate. We're now generating over one tome of compost a year employing four Hotboxes and five wormeries. Local residents are loyal contributors making our efforts a success. An exponential expansion by the support of supermarket shoppers and professional collection operators together with professional composting facilities in the area can transform our efforts at very little immediate cost and significant dividends. It can be done!

What we'll deliver:

  • saving nutrients across the board
  • providing local gardeners with fresh, rich compost

Why it's a great idea:

Seven million tonnes of domestic food-waste is discharged every year to landfill or incineration. It is nutrition the entitlement of children growing up no and generations to come. Tower Hamlets residents can, and some do, something about it. More can.

Steps to get it done:


it will be a big effort but with wide support it can readily be achieved. Individual & group effort and moral recognition can do it. Shoppers pressure on the supermarkets will tell. They are a small number and they can operate in conjunction with shoppers by making sites available and co-operating with lottery and other promotions giving prominence.
