Little Buddies Partnerships

The Challenge

Many businesses in have large amounts of organic waste that are either sent to landfill, or trucked out of region to be processed in large scale facilities. We offer an alternative: let's process it together and return the spoils to Waikato soils.

At the end of the day, there are three reasons why a business will alter its behaviour:

  1. To comply with legislation

  2. To gain a competitive advantage by listening to the market

  3. To reduce costs, or increase revenue (ideally both)

Legislation is coming that will impact businesses who do not get ahead on their sustainability initiatives. It is only a matter of time and the clock is ticking.

We think we have a solid solution to points 2 & 3 right now, and those who choose to invest in getting ahead of the curve with regards to sustainability will have a competitive advantage over those who ignore the changes that will inevitably impact us all.

The Solution - Little Buddies Partnerships

Little Buddies Partnerships are available to businesses/farms that produce large volumes of waste. We manage the composting and vermiculture processes for you to efficiently convert your waste into high quality vermicast and compost. Outside the initial investment, there is zero touch required by you - we manage the entire process.

If you are a large producer or carrier of organic waste, we would love to learn about your situation and how we work together
