Growing City had its start on Savary Island in British Columbia. After founder Lisa von Sturmer spent a week on the island with friends – where composting and recycling are mandatory – she was shocked by the huge impact composting had on the group’s waste.
When she returned back to work in Vancouver, she was dismayed to discover just how much organic waste was being unnecessarily thrown in the trash.
When she tried to find a company that could help her office set up an organics recycling program, she was incredibly disappointed to not find one. So she decided to create a service that was simple, clean, convenient and professional enough for a corporate office environment.
Growing City was designed with *your* office in mind – we know you’re busy, we know you need quality metrics, and we know that your office has a professional aesthetic that needs to be maintained.
With Growing City, there’s no more wasting staff’s time trying to organize a recycling or organics program – and no more ugly plastic bins in the office, either.
Let us know what service you need, and we’ll take care of everything else: from training staff, to cleaning bins, to sending you monthly reports you can trust.
