At BinBreeze our mission is to reduce the impact of food waste everywhere it's produced. We achieve this by making the practice of food waste diversion or 'organics recycling' easy and better for the planet. Once we were just like you, setting up fruit fly traps and pinching our nose every time we opened our compost bin. We knew there had to be a better way to manage food waste at home and in the office — and it led us to founding BinBreeze.

 

BinBreeze is the world's first all-natural and non-toxic indoor composting powder. The circular economy product is made from waste wood that would otherwise be burnt, and that is instead processed and combined with specialty minerals. BinBreeze is scientifically formulated to instantly eliminate compost odors and emissions, and naturally dehydrate and eliminate fruit flies, all while creating a better compost for the garden or community. BinBreeze sequesters carbon that would otherwise be burnt and contribute to climate change, encourages food waste diversion and utilization within the home, and reduces the methane emissions of the waste prior to processing at a composting facility.

 

Our vision is of a world where EVERY SCRAP IS SAVED and no food waste is ever sent to landfill. Join the journey and start composting today!
