Composting for the future – we’re piloting our London co-working space composting system

Composting for the future! Green Lab is now piloting our London co-working space composting system. We will be composting all of the organic food matter produced in 3space, working directly with Entocycle, Bento Lab, Idea Drop and Restart Program to begin with before taking waste from the whole office space.  We will be composting our combined waste to use to grow our crops in the lab, eventually eating our leafy greens, creating a circular system.

Andrew Cribb, CEO and co-founder of 3Space, hopes to see the project working and the benefits grow –

“3Space unlocks buildings in cities which would otherwise be empty or wasted in the development cycle, and in the same way we aim to be sustainable and circular in our operations and how we deal with our co-working waste. Most importantly our buildings are about experimenting with other ideas and innovations which traditional offices spaces wouldn’t. With Green Lab’s innovation we will be able to offer our tenants a circular solution for their food waste, where it is composted on site and then used to grow food with the option of them participating in the growing. Where else can you go to work and be able to watch your waste being put to use on site, actively participate and then taste the success!!”

We hope that one day the whole city will be composting and to break down the divide between working, living and inhabiting environments.

HOW CAN YOU GET INVOLVED

If your interested to find out more and follow our composting journey follow us on instagram where we will update with pictures of our progress. Maybe you could start your own work space composting system too!

We are also currently working with UCL to create an open source anaerobic digester, so watch this space…
