Creating high quality, healthy compost locally. Our approach focuses on technology and policy efforts for greater efficiency with organics diversion. We Radiate is establishing a waste management paradigm to promote education & research, jobs, and sustainability.
The We Radiate Story
The idea for We Radiate initiated overseas in the coastal town of Pondicherry. We were exposed to the practices of composting at a regional farm and viewed the spectacle of waste and consumption during visits to the municipal landfill. Our mind swirled with opportunity and potential for improvement in the waste management paradigm.
We found a home in Brooklyn among community gardens, schools, and with enthusiasts of urban agriculture. As we develop, innovate, and grow within the field of compost – our expertise is shaped by our partnerships and collaboration with organizations across NYC. Please follow our “Community Voice” for updates and information of our progression!
Our combined experience covers Engineering, Waste Management, Urban Planning, Graphic Design, Public Health, and Education. We have passion to promote healthier environments in urban landscapes and dedication to encourage widespread recognition of our closed food loop system.
As momentum propels us forward, we seek members to join and provide assistance, expertise, and skills for progression. Contact Us and Join In!
