Eastside Compost Pedallers

This genius compost recycling program was built on four core values: sustainability, community, simplicity, and creativity. When members sign up, they're given everything they need to start turning their compostable waste into a rich resource. Then once a week, pedallers pick up the compost using specially designed compost-churning cargo bikes and haul it to neighborhood gardens and nearby farms, where it will be used to nourish the soil and grow more food. ESCP works to connect neighbors and presents an inspiring new way to support Austin's local food movement.
