Composting–we all know it’s good for the Earth, but who wants to keep their food scraps lying around the house? Especially in the city, where not many of us have a lush garden out back where we can enrich the soil with our compost (my current yard is a patch of Astroturf, so I get it).
But there is another option out there, and it all starts with a bucket. Bootstrap Compost is Boston’s only kitchen scrap pick-up service for residents and businesses that allows for composting without the mess. Clients need only to store their food waste in a bucket provided by Bootstrap, set it outside once a week and let the team do the rest of the work! They pick up the scraps by bicycle or van and replace the bucket with a clean, shiny new one.
