Making It Easy To Compost : Post Modern Compostable System

Farmers Market It’s that wonderful time of the year when the farmers market is packed with amazing fresh harvest and every time you walk out to your home garden you return to the kitchen with a bucket full of produce. With all that harvest and food preparation comes left overs that can’t be eaten and is a beneficial addition to the home garden as compost.  Today we connect with Glenn Geisendorfer who is both a co-creator and co-owner of {POST}MODERN.  It is clear to see that Glenn is passionate about our plant and all that we put into it as he shares some stats about our landfills and creative ways we can help cut back on waste with simple recycling practices.

I feel so silly that it wasn’t until speaking with Glenn that it dawned on me that people in town have scraps from food that they cook up just like me! Did you know that 40% of the waste in landfills is food scraps? When I think food waste I think of the bucket I use during canning season that is filled with the veggie scraps that can’t be used in the process or the little waste bin that gets dumped out in the compost pile from time to time. During our 20 minute conversation in the podcast below Glenn who is an active environmentalist shares why it is important to compost food scraps and how he is getting folks excited about composting.

What does compostable mean? A product is capable of disintegrating into natural elements in a compost environment leaving no toxicity in the soil in roughly 90 days.

[alert-announce]About The {POST}MODERN  [/alert-announce]

{POST}MODERN refills and multi-packs are on Indiegogo

It’s a compostable food waste disposal system called {POST}MODERN that takes the mess out of composting for city dwellers and makes it easy for home gardeners to add to their garden. The idea of {POST}MODERN grew (literally) from stinky plastic buckets in our families’ kitchens says creator Glenn Geisendorfer . When Seattle started curbside collection of food scraps using plastic pails for collection we loved the idea of helping cutback on what ends up in landfills. Shortly after that they learned the downside of doing something good – the plastic countertop containers and compostable bag liners became wet, smelly and unsightly additions to their homes. Inspired by this the creators designed a way to make collecting food scraps easy and clean for both curbside and backyard composters.


The product is 100% recycled corrugated boxes, our molded pulp containers break down quickly in compost; contribute to rich, healthy soil; and help keep food waste out of landfills. Launched on Indiegogo in early July and coming to retails stores soon … you will want to follow them on Facebook for specials to come.
