Get Free Composting Tools for Your Classroom

Let's Go Compost is a 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to making composting free and accessible throughout the United States. Our mission is to revolutionize waste management, reduce landfill waste, and combat harmful greenhouse gas emissions. We work to ensure composting reaches all, irrespective of location or income.

Our K-12 STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) classroom composting program is designed to enrich the educational experience of students by integrating composting practices into the curriculum. Through this initiative, we aim to enhance environmental literacy, foster a deeper understanding of waste reduction and recycling, and inspire the next generation of environmentally conscious citizens. 

How We Can Support Your School's Composting Efforts

Please know our program offers tiered levels of support to ensure deep market saturation and strategic placement of our non-profit funding. These levels include (and are subject to change):

  1. General Public:

    • Anyone in the general public can engage with us via free webinars, public workshops, and downloadable curriculum modules to spark interest and awareness in composting.

  2. Individual Teacher:

    • Individual public school teachers can apply to receive a worm composting kit (indoor tower, outdoor tumbler, or outdoor in-ground garden bed worm bin) and accompanying age-appropriate composting-themed books.

  3. Individual School:

    • Public schools with multiple teachers offering our curriculum and worm composting kits can apply for a Garden Tower 2™, 50-Plant Composting Vertical Garden Planter.

  4. District-wide Expansion:

    • Public school districts with multiple schools completing steps 1-3 can apply for bulk compost pick up for school cafeterias.
