Compost à la Carte

In the city of Amsterdam, the Netherlands, organic waste is mostly not treated in a sustainable way! We are opening the first hotel chain for composting worms to give city restaurants a tool to compost their organic waste & use rich vermicompost in their gardens to grow food. 

Please support Le Compostier's crowdfunding campaign by sharing this message about our crowdfund. We launch our crowdfund page on Monday 30 October & we have some great rewards lined up as thanks for donations! With enough support we can realise 10 worm hotels in the city in the next year.

Together we can save 40.000 kg valuable organic waste & give urban food production a boost! 

  • Your help with our Thunderclap was great! Will you help us just a little more?

    Dear Supporter of Le Compostier,

    We are calling upon your help once again:) With one month left to reach our goal to make restaurant kitchens circular we need your help! The last weeks the support for our crowdfunding ( has been growing and we almost reached 75% of our first goal. 

    You have been great in giving us your voice to reach the people in your network and we hope you will help reach those people again. We need to show people we can make a change and make the soils healthy again. 

    Just tonight I heard on Russel Brand's podcast that scientists are saying we have 60 harvests left in our soils! Can you belief that?! We can not let this happen and we need to take better care of what we have. 

    We are starting small, but each wormhotel will be making soil, not destroying it. Help us make 10 wormhotels for restaurants in the next year and hopefully we will inspire to a thousand others the next year! 

    Please donate to our campaign and choose your reward. It is also possible to give your reward as a present in the Holliday season that is soon to come. 

    Together we can make a change and go beyond the blah blah blah

    Thank you and all the best to you.

    Yours sincerely,

    Rowin Snijder of Le Compostier
